    I'll be there too for both days and I'm really looking forward to it. My mom is coming for the first time ever on Friday night so hopefully we both survive the insanity, LOL I actually entered the online contest to get one of the guaranteed autograph sessions from one of the 'name' players and ended up winning one for Aroldis Chapman on Saturday. I never win anything so that was very exciting for me!

    Re: Redsfest

    OK so tomorrow is RedsFest. I am leaving tonight at 9:00 CST and have to be in Cincy no later than 10:00 EST tomorrow for a campus tour at UC. 6.5 hours of driving late at night sounds great!?! Anyway, I'll be there with my 2 boys...If you see 3 guys (1 old one and 2 young ones) asleep when you walk into the Duke Energy Center that will probably be us.

    I've never gone, but next year my kid will be more cognizant of what's going on, maybe the year after. I'd go just to see the event, but it's a ways away and I'm pretty busy. Have a great time all who attend!

    I'll be going down tonight, probably early for a few hours. I have my HOF pass that we get each year.

    I am already not looking forward to walking from the car to Redsfest. This rain needs to go away.

    Park in the garage across 5th street from the Convention Center. It has a skywalk from there to the Convention Center and you can stay warm and dry.

    Last year it was like $10-15 to park there. I will just park down at fountain square like usual and save a few bucks to buy myself a stocking stuff. Writing on the internet doesn't pay as well as you would think. Or well, it probably pays exactly what you think lol

    Same here. Can't leave work early this year... So w/the rain, traffic I'll probably be there around 6:30.
