    Is that you, or are you describing doug?

    (I get the mirrored shades, but ski sweaters for guys is, like, ten minutes ago, doug.

    I wasn't even paying attention but you might be right! Sure looks like a wedding band there. I know he wasn't married at last year's Redsfest. Wish I had noticed it because I totally would have asked him about it (his line wasn't too long when we were in it so a brief conversation could have been had at the time). Congrats to him if it's true!

    Haha! I heard part of that too! That was hilarious.


    I ended up getting distracted by some random stuff this afternoon and wasn't able to go through my pics like I originally planned but I will definitely try to post some of them tomorrow night.

    My 9 yo son and I went both days. I think he was a bit overwhelmed (and he's been before). He actually said to me on Saturday "there's nothing to do" in a frustrated tone but he actually meant there is too much to do and he couldn't make up his mind.

    He ended up with 3 autographs (Mesoraco, Hoover, Arroyo). Friday night we watched the Cincinnati Zoo's Animal show and Drew Stubbs' reading of The Curse of the Big Bambino.

    Here's a cool pic of our radio show interviewing Mat Latos, and Sam LeCure jumps on stage to interject about crazy things that go on in the clubhouse.

    Re: Redsfest

    Had a great time. Ended up with 26 autographs altogether on both days combined. Which is pretty good since I didn't have any of the VIP passes or anything. Just about being in the right place at the right time.

    On a random Reds poster that I have, I got: Chris Heisey, Nick Masset, Tommy Helms, Todd Redmond, Tony Cingrani, and Ted Power.

    On a multi-signed ball, I got Tom Browning for a friend.

    And then on the ROMLB on the sweet spots, I got: Johnny Cueto (only one that didn't sign on sweet spot), Norm Charlton, Mike Leake, Devon Mesoraco, Jim Maloney, Jack Billingham, Mat Latos, Robert Stephenson, Billy Hamilton, Jim O'Toole, Ryan Hanigan, Bronson Arroyo, Drew Stubbs, Dave Collins, Leo 'Chico' Cardenas, Tommy Helms, Todd Benzinger, Chris Welsh, and Kyle Lotzkar. New hobby I am starting with this.

    Also, on a side note, when I was waiting to get in on Saturday morning, no more than 10 people behind me was the infamous guy that was shown on tv during the initial 'Howl' or 'Whoo' this season. The guy with the stache and the red curly hair. I wanted to say hey or whatever and ask if he really knew he was on tv like that, but when the line wrapped around, the best I could do was just the casual head nod hello.

    That was one of the funnier interviews from the two days that I saw.

    Thanks dougdirt. It was crazy, we spent about 10 mins talking to Latos about tattoos, hair gel, & shaving cream pies, before we got to any baseball questions. Then LeCure stormed the stage. They actually were whispering behind me trying to "clean up" their clubhouse stories since kids were in the crowd!
    Our producer, Todd, shot this great pic at that moment...hilarious!:

    Well, I'm only 5'1" so I can make ANYONE look really tall. You should see my pic with Mike Leake....he looks way taller than he actually is while standing next to me even though he's 'only' like 5'10" or something, LOL

    Glad you guys like the pics!

    Yeah, I knew how tall you were, but I was just pointing out that most times we see these guys standing next to each other...and not normal humans. :O)
