    Enjoying the Cincinnati Reds

    I am from Connecticut and have never been to Cincinnati, but I determined to listen to the Reds this season. I don't know how I would define the difference but the Central Division of both Leagues seem to have a different ethos than that of the East. I am listening to and scoring from the gameday radio broadcasts of the Reds and the Tigers and I find thesse broadcasts to be very rewarding. I still listen to the Mets in the NL Eastern Division but my first choicet his far into the season is the Cincinnati Reds. I have been especially poeased with the quality of the Reds radio broadcasters I send my best wishes to all other Reds fans and I do hope the 2024 season will be a successful and enjoyable one for all.

    Welcome to RZ. I would love to see our Redlegs match the success of that college basketball team you have up your way.

    Re: Enjoying the Cincinnati Reds

    I did my B.A. at UConn back in 1968 and we had pretty good basketball teams. My problem was a simple one: I did not have any interest in basketball. One of the fellow in my dorm was on the team aned I went one evening to see the game. The others suggesteed I not go in future since I never seemed to know when to cheer. We did watch the Red Sox games now and then and I felt more at home with baseball. A lot of people around here are very interested in basketball and that's fine for them, but not for me. I also am troubled when big business (every big sports business) makes serious introads into the work of the instiuttions of higher learning. I also did a graduate degree at Yale, and I felt the same way then.

    As a university professor, I couldn't agree more.

    I didn't go to the "instiuttion" at Yale. What is a "introad"?

    I'd say typos. We all make them.
