I cried. Yep. like VP, I cried. It's probably not OK for an old man like me to cry because your baseball team won, but after 15 years, the lost decade and summer after summer of frustration, I cried. I know my Dad's in heaven enjoying this. I went to my first game as a kid in 1961. I remember the clinching in 61, 70, 75, 76, 90, and tonight. Tonight was the best.

Pretty hilarious picture of EV downing some champaign...
"Today was the byproduct of us thinking we can come back from anything." - Joey Votto after blowing a 10-1 lead and holding on for the 12-11 win on 8/25/2010.
It's a beautiful thing.
This team is so much fun to watch. So theatrical.
I'd love to be in Cincinnati tonight. Should be quite a party.

Whoever moved my thread thanks!
This team could be special for a few years.
Bought NLCS tickets earlier today. Hope I get to use them.

Logan Ondrusek and Mike Leake standing next to each other, satisfies my sense of proportion.
Hugs, smiling, and interactive Twitter accounts, don't mean winning baseball. Until this community understands that we are cursed to relive the madness.
#22 on that slide show is one of my favorite Reds photos...ever.
Baseball is like church. Many attend, few understand

So this is a Redszone first. Crazy.
"Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."
