I got home this morning around 8 AM. Pretty much slept and laid around to get ready for work tonight. I did manage to watch today's extra inning affair. Another solid outing by Arroyo. Simply ironic that ex-Red Juan Castro figured into the victory.
I think we all had a great time this weekend.
My leg calf muscles are sorer then all get out though from all that walking up and down the streets of Cincy.
"panic" only comes from having real expectations
All right, boys and girls, here are the official pictures from the 2009 RZ outing (starring RFS62)
I thought I'd take a picture of where RFS stayed
After I finally caught up with RFS and GAC at the In Between on Friday, Cyclone picked us up there to take us back downtown to Rock Bottom Brewery to partake in some pre-game libations. Joining us there were redsbuckeye (not BuckeyeRedleg as I mistakenly stated earlier) Redhawkfish, and Vatican Plum

Saturday afternoon, RFS wanted to go to the Reds HOF & Museum. Apparently he wanted to see the idols of his youth - George and Harry Wright.

Afterwards we went over to Gameday where we were joined by Roy Tucker and Mr. and Mrs Redhawkfish

After warming up there we took off to the Reds game where we met up with RedsBaron and his sons Jason and Kevin. We also met RFS' niece there. We were all stunned to find out that such a nice, intelligent, handsome young woman is related to RFS but as they say, truth is stranger than fiction.

Unfortunately, RFS' niece doesn't share the same good taste in teams as her uncle does. It's also a much better picture of GAC.

More pictures of the gang
After the game, decided to get even with me for posting all those pictures of him in his younger days. If you want to see his pictures as a youth, you will have to look on some cave walls in West Virginia.
After RFS finished assaulting me, we went back to Gameday where GAC regaled us with stories of when Jimmy Piersall played for the Giants at Crosley Field.
Drinking is so easy, even a cave man can do it.
Roy finally finds someone his age to talk to besides RFS.
Kitty Duran joined us there after the game. She was late because she had to get a makeover.
Beauty and the Beasts
That's all I am allowed to post, folks. We certainly had a great time with RedsZone's elder statesman. Hopefully he will be posting his impressions of his trip here. He told us that he would like to come back more often and hopefully more RedsZoners can come out to meet him.
RF needs to be buried in that shirt.

Best pictures of Chip all day.
