This is my first post and first visit to the RedsZone. I'm excited to find a message board dedicated to the Reds. They have been my favorite team since 1970, the year they lost to the Orioles in the World Series. My brother was a Baltimore fan, so I had to root against him. It has been an exciting, and sometimes discouraging ride following the Reds ever since. However, we have a team to truly be excited about and I look forward to joining the Reds fans here to cheer on our team.
