    Great Reds Experience

    I had the chance of a lifetime today. Batting Practice and meeting Marty and the Cowboy in the Reds Radio Booth before the game.

    Being a Die Heart REDS fan my entire life, this was a special day.

    Reds lost though but still 6 games up. Click image for larger version.

    Cool pictures... how did you get to meet those guys and get on the field?

    This picture seems to go with the thread that I got while I was in Cincy at the beginning of the month.

    "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."

    How is that guy not 300 pounds and on an IV? Amazing.

    Marty actually looks so much more normal with his head shaved...like you think a 70 yr would look.

    He is LH. No offense, Xavier, but it'd be nice to have a good one of those off the bench. As long as your name is not Miguel (RH or LH)!

    Yep, he seemed pretty high and/or drunk at the time. But he was very nice... there were about 50 other people trying to get pictures with him though that didn't get through. They had to "settle" for Martin.

    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    That is the most realistic looking wax figure I've ever seen. Almost lifelike - spooky.
