    It's a real shame there won't be any more seasons of Brockmire. They would have had a field day with the "and there's a long drive by Castellanos" meme.

    I want to thank my friend Thom Brennaman for traveling over to Morgantown and speaking to the team. His message isn't one of excuses but one of accountability. It takes courage to confront mistakes head on and I believe our guys learned that from his time with us.

    I'm surprised Huggs did that although he loves Cincinnati. Maybe Thom is remorseful. I'll know more when I talk to some people at my alma mater,

    Worrying that Cincinnati media is keeping up with him, makes me think the Reds will be bringing him back in a few years.

    I'm not. It's a great cautionary tale for athletes during and after their playing career that hopefully makes an impact on them. Easier to understand the message when you see someone that's dealt with life-changing consequences because of his words/actions.

    huggs has plenty of skeletons in his closet. no gay slurs (to my knowledge) but definitely some embarrassing, drunken moments.

    I tell you what, Thom's publicist is earning his or her fee. I would not be surprised if he does come back to the Reds as early as next season.

    It is curious that they haven't hired somebody into his position yet.

    Or maybe they just really like Jim Day.

    But to be known in a lot of circles as a homophobe — I have never been a homophobe, not for one minute of my life. Have I used that word before? Yes, I've used that word before.

    Wondering if he is referring to the hot mic moment, or his entire life. Because if I remember right he originally said the hot mic moment was the first time he used the word.

    Brennaman was asked by Sloan how many times he has replayed the incident in his head:

    "Not one time.
    The thing about Thom is that he's a liar lol

    Or a sociopath I guess, because a normal person would have replayed the moment in their head, at least once.

    Just as planned, probably give him a night of fireworks to celebrate him and what he said.

    The reds broadcasts were ten times better with Thom gone. If they rehire him... please God, No!
