    So what do we do in real life? Can we help each other out?

    HUUUUGE site as far as viewership goes... Would be nice to make connections here that would translate into beneficial relationships in real life?

    What do you guys and girls do for a career?

    As for myself, my love for the Reds has already paid off... I work in freight/shipping logistics, and have had Castellini trucking carry a few loads for my company... Any time I see anything on my board going into Cincinnati, that's my first call as a Reds fan...

    I work for a consulting firm that helps nonprofit organizations, corporate foundations and other mission driven organizations to measure their work to drive strategy and to communicate their impact to raise money.

    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Interesting... The company that I work for is in the process of getting a contract to lease space/phone systems to a group that provides homeless veterans with jobs.

    This is pretty cool too... My dad has done some electrical work for Kroger...

    Also, the freight company that I work for has a major account with Kroger freight... Mostly beverages running into the Cinci, Lou, C-bus areas...

    Well, I run a trucking company. We specialize in expedited freight, usually running on cargo vans and small straight trucks, no tractor trailers yet. If you need a package or 10 pallets moved somewhere ASAP, that's what we do.

    But yeah... Pretty much anybody that needs a hook-up (or just an extra quote) in the freight business can shoot me a line...

    Other than that, my dad, who works in commercial electrical work can also shoot you a quote...

    Ditto. This is career number 3 for me after failed stints as a musician and then wanna-be baseball operations guy.
    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids

    If things keep dragging here in Indy I may head to the Queen City to find some work. Doubtful though.

    My Grandfather who started our business went to the 72' WS because he was working on some projects in Cincy and just happened to get a ticket. Maybe I can follow in his steps and hopefully do the same thing for the 2010' WS.
