I am what you might call a perennial fair weather Reds fan.
Every year I look forward to Opening Day.
Opening Day finally comes and its like Christmas Day as a kid waiting to open up presents.
The first couple of weeks, I don't miss an inning.
Then, gradually, as the season goes on and I see they won't contend again, my Reds time gets less and less.
By the All-Star break, I have usually stopped watching altogether and don't even check the box score.
My Bengals seasons are eerily similar by the way...
Being a Cincinnati sports fan just gets old, that's all I'm saying. How long has it been for the Reds? I don't know how you people do it year after year.
Yeah I'll be listening to the game today. But even if the Reds win, you just know that come October the Mets will be in the playoffs and the Reds will be in 4th or 5th place, hovering somewhere below .500. Sheffield is a good analogy. The Mets didn't really even need him. The Reds did though. But as usual...
The losing just gets old, that's all. /end rant
