    Sounds like a great weekend to be at the ballpark. Too bad I'm leaving for Myrtle Beach Saturday morning and won't be able to attend.

    Sounds like I might get that picture of me and Eric Davis I've wanted since I was about 12 now.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    I wish I could go to more of the events this weekend too. We're going to the game on Sunday but we have our church's Vacation Bible School going on all week (Friday's game is out) and my cousin is turning 18 so we have his party on Saturday night (that game is out too). I was going to volunteer for the Gala but I leave for vacation early Monday morning and that didn't work out either. I'm looking forward to Sunday's game though and I hope there are some huge crowds there to cheer on our guys! Too bad I won't get my Joey Votto All Star t-shirt in time to wear to Sunday's game. :

    Dang, Heather. Where are your priorities .

    Nah, totally understandable. Too many things to do in too short of a time. Have a great time on Sunday and most of all, enjoy your vacation!

    I shook Stanley Burrell's hand and talked to him at the Nashville airport back in 2002.

    (Stanley Burrell goes by MC Hammer. )

    <sarcasm, just sarcasm> 3 of the 13 guys appearing from that 1990 team...

    Paul Noce
    Anyone remember Paul? Had one AB in 1990 and got a hit. 1-for-1 (a single) for the year. That was his last MLB at-bat. OPS as a REDS player = 2.000. The real question... did he get a WS ring?!? Also gotta wonder how many men can claim to have hit safely in their last MLB at-bat (Paul Noce, Ted Williams, etc, etc).

    Keith Brown
    25 career MLB games (all with the REDs in 4 seasons). Appeared in a grand total of 8 games (11.1 IP) in 1990 with a 4.76 ERA.

    Ron Robinson
    The Creature appeared in almost as many games as Keith Brown, as he saw 6 games for the 1990 REDS before being traded to Milwaukee with Bob Sebra for Billy Bates and Glenn Braggs. I guess we can give thanks to Ron for helping to get the guys who made the spectacular catch in the NLCS game 6 off of Martinez and scored the winning run in WS game 2.
    Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.

    MC Hammer and a Chris Sabo bobblehead? Almost too much to comprehend.

    Sounds like a great weekend, wish I could be there.

    How big are the crowds? Do you get a chance to meet every player there, or are the lines so long for some that you have to pick and choose? How many players can you expect to actually meet on a given day?
