    When I think of Steve Parris I think of that magical season of 99. Would you rather me bring up Eric Milton, Paul Wilson, Danny Graves (as a starter), some fat dude named Hamilton we had in 02, Todd Van Poppel, Ryan Dempster, Kyle Lohse, Jared Fernandez, and Elmer Dessens?
    My bad you're right. I was getting the years mixed up. I do recall Harnisch pitching well for a few years for the Reds. Honestly I remember the name Steve Parris, but vaguely recall his contributions.

    Re: Baseball is way more fun when you don't suck

    I'm 45, born in 1965.

    My Dad bought our first color TV for the '75 playoffs. Some of you probably never realized TV's were black and white before color came along.

    I've been lucky enough to experience the '75, '76 and '90 World Championships. And also experienced the Bengals Forest Gregg Super Bowl appearance and the Sam Wyche appearance. Remember both vividly. Heck, I remember Isaac Curtis and Kenny Andersen like it was yesterday. I also remember UC's Final Four and Elite Eight appearance the following year.

    Have to say I've witnessed some great Cincinnati sporting achievements in my lifetime. I feel for some of you in your early 20's who've had to go without as the Reds have stunk for the most part and the Bengals flirt with being good again. UC basketball is in the tank but the football program is on the rise. Can't wait for Zach Collaros this season.

    Anyway, I digress. Great that the Reds are back on top!

    And my NFL team is the 49ers. Combined with 15 years of the Reds futility and 8 years of the 49ers, that's a cool 23 years of ineptitude for me. I'm guessing most here are Bengals fans though, so I'll take my combo over yours though, ty very much.
    Really you missed all the good stuff for the 49ers. The Bengals are perennial playoff contenders in a much harder division. The 49ers lay down in the NFC west every year, get beat out by the Cardinals, the Seahawks. I feel sorry for you if you would really rather be a 49ers fan than a Bengals fan. At least we play good football and our best player doesn't get kicked out of the game by his head coach.
