    Plans for Opening Days

    Stealing this idea from the Old Red Guard Forum...

    After many years of hopeful thinking- this lifelong Cincinnatian and Reds fan is heading down to his first opening day ever tomorrow- as my wife got me a power pack for my birthday. We're going to get there early to find a good parking spot and take in all the festivities around town.

    Hope you all enjoy your day. I know I will.

    Go Reds.

    Tomorrow is the best day of the year. Just thought I would throw that in.

    No work, no NOTHING tomorrow, except for obscene amounts of baseball and the NCAA championship game. Greatest sports day of the year.

    I get the day off of school (I'm in college) due to Easter festivities, so I will be watching the game with my grandfather, one of my hero's.

    Stuck at work. Guess I'll just have to keep checking ESPN, Fox, or CBS periodically. On second thought, I'll just keep the game thread open. Only problem is that doing so may get this site banned at work.

    We have had texting blocked on our cells ever since we got them. Besides, my boss literally sits 5 feet from me. He would get annoyed real quick from the texting (no radio either - to noisy). He does not care as much about the internet. IT are the people that worry about that.
