    How's this for a theory? No one cares about the NFL this year and there is no big 10 football. Hence more attention goes to the Reds in Sept. Hence the Reds receive the love and attention and they seek and so they reward it with more feel good wins.

    Pretty much the rest of the country will point to the Reds winning the world series as another tragedy of 2020 along with Covid, the economy, the murder hornets, the Saharan dust storm and the West Coast Fires.

    That doesn't even count the horrible torture inflicted on society that is the election. What a year.

    I hope we can contribute to the rest of the country hating 2020.

    I really only want Reds Country to be happy.

    That's not the impression I got from the game threads up until two weeks ago, a lot of talk about how watching the Bengals will be so much better than watching "this mess".

    The way this year is going, it'll only be a matter of days before we get indisputable proof of the existence of Sasquatch, Chupacabra, the Jersey Devil, and Jose Peraza taking a walk.

    I have never seen a fan base take an instant hating to a guy as quickly as Red Sox fans did for Jose Peraza. They groan at mere mention of his name.

    He seemed to be a nice enough fellow and he plays hard. You could see on his face the effect that his failures had. You can’t fault his effort. But pitchers went after him like buzzards on a dying water buffalo. When he played SS, a ball would get hit over his way and I’d think “whew, we’re getting out of this inning” only to have him just start to appear into view as the ball went skittering into the outfield.

    He’s just.... bad.
    It’s not the thing you fling, it’s the fling itself.

    Another theory: the team got better when Thom acted like a moron and the booth became Brennaman-free for the first time in several generations.

    Now get rid of any hommage or reference to Pete Rose, and see what happens...

    Whoa whoa, now. I'm quite excited to watch Joe Burrow, this is the most I've cared about the NFL in a long time.
