    I don't have the 4192 papers (I was 8) but I do have all of the papers from his banishment, including a special pull out section of the Dowd Report from the Dayton Daily News.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    Now that's freaky...I have one too and got mine the exact same way! My grandfather, not yours.

    I remember what McKeon stated and basically it was "That's great but how about the pitching" or we need pitching.....something to that affect.
    A lot of people did not like his style at all and disliked what he said.....but he was dead on and I do not think he took to the superstar in the clubhouse very well either.
