The older I get - the better I was
and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)
When I was a little kid Pete Rose was the King of Cincinnati. There was a family two houses down whose last name was Rose. Every time a strange car parked in their driveway, I used to wait to see if Pete Rose was there. Yeah, I was a dumb little kid who didn't know the last name Rose is not that uncommon. I wasted a lot of hours waiting for Charlie Hustle to come out.
A watched plot never thickens.
