    Pretty cool that there are 4 Reds in the AS Game. This is the year the NL wins!

    I'm sure there will be many years in the near future when we see 2-3 Reds in the All-Star game, but four is a rarity and I'm going to enjoy it tonight. And hopefully this is the year the NL ends this ridiculous losing streak. They are going to get it done tonight and some of the representatives from Cincinnati are going to help the cause!

    I haven't cared this much about an All Star Game in a long time. I always want the league that plays real baseball to win, but when the Reds might be in the playoffs it intensifies the desire for a W.

    I'm looking forward to sitting down with my girlfriend and our new puppy and watching the game. Definitely have a rooting interest this season.

    I know, it's cool to actually care about the All-Star game again and be really excited for it. I don't expect Votto to take out an AL catcher in extra innings to win the game or anything (they don't have anyone named "Fosse" on their roster, do they?) but it's still going to be fun to watch.

    Congrats on the new puppy! (And for someone with your looks, congrats on having a girlfriend too. Ha. Just kidding bud.)

    You can't watch the player introductions and think that it doesn't mean anything to the guys who are there.

    They'll remember it the rest of their lives.

    I got chills watching the introductions and seeing FOUR of our Reds players out there with all those other great players. How can you not be at least a little excited for tonight?! This is fantastic. It's time for the NL to get a win!

    If they really wanted to win they should have put OC in the 2 hole.

    Scotty Roles baby! He got that whole rally started.

    I think they were playing Drake in the background throughout the inning.

    You are just killin' me here! This is supposed to be a positive thread. Let's save the "O-Cab sux" threads for another day. We certainly know there will be plenty of opportunities to mention it.
