I wish I could have been at the game last night, I was listening on the radio. But when I watched the replay I hardly saw anyone jumping up and down when BP hit the HR, all I saw was people just raise their hands, clap, and cheer.
I would have gone absolutely crazy by jumping up and down for 5 straight minutes, screamed till I didn't have a voice, then went and celebrated somewhere with other Reds fans outside of the stadium. I can remember when I was a kid about 12 years old how wild Reds fans were in 1990 when they won ballgames like this, a wild feelgood party atmosphere...what the hell happened? It seems like Reds fans have been dead not just in the lost decade but really since the strike of 94.
I don't know, I just feel like we need wilder fans. I miss the party atmosphere I used to see as a kid in the 80s and 90s at Riverfront. We need Pete Rose back in baseball to be our manager, think about it, if he bet on us everynight to win he would manage like Satan himself seemed to possess him.
