Via reds.com Pretty “meh” if you ask me, but I absolutely LOVE Bronson’s (Free Love) for two reasons. 1) He is basically retired and doesn’t even play. 2) because it’s just so good. I saw him at Holy Grail last Friday night after the Flo-rida concert at GABP and he was performing live music with […]
Scooter Gennett becomes the first player in REDS FRANCHISE HISTORY to hit four homers in a game. He ties the club record of 10 RBI last done by Walker Cooper in 1949. He sets a REDS FRANCHISE RECORD with 17 total bases. 🛴🛴🛴🛴🛴🛴🛴🛴🛴 A post shared by Cincinnati Reds (@reds) on Jun 6, 2017 […]
I absolutely love this from Votto. This is what everyone (me) says is Votto’s biggest weakness, his lack of fire and grit. But If this year has been good for anything so far, (It’s actually been pretty good for multiple reasons so far) it’s because Votto is finding his “on demand” Home Run Swing, […]
I go onto espn.com today to look for the slate of games tonight and when they start, only to see this. “How Michigan became the feel-good story of the NCAA tournament” Hmmmmm…Well let me take a crack at this one: They were on the way to the big ten Tourney and this traumatic event happened: […]
I was in New Hampshire last week on a weekend away with a female, and found myself “Boutique hopping” when, all of the sudden, I notice I’m in women’s store after women’s store. This is when I began to look around and notice my surroundings; with almost every woman I saw shopping that day I […]
Most people get through their miserable day at work by looking forward to a workout, a beer, a glass of wine perhaps, possibly a dinner date. But not me. I get through it by the heart-warming, tear inducing, emotionally terrorizing updates about “Fiona” the new baby Hippo at the Cincinnati Zoo. #FionaFix is one of […]
Before you start jumping down my throat, just hear me out. Whenever an athlete that I follow on social media gets traded or switches teams, I am always a huge fan of cutting the cord and moving on. It’s almost automatic for me; all of the sudden– your inspirational quotes bore me, your jokes aren’t […]
I’m driving to work at the end of last week. I had had a Chilito while I was driving the night before… so I plucked the single packet of Skyline’s famous Oysters Crackers out of the bag on the passengers seat from the night before. I began to munch on the crackers, crumbs tumbling down my belly on the way to the car floor, when I noticed these crackers are actually filling me up; they’re buttery, they’re salty, and when I finally look down… they are YELLOW!
I assumed I had an “Over-cooked” batch, that my taste buds were just “off”, only to find out that the baker for these crackers had changed. I’m not really interested doing a full breakdown of the differences of the crackers. But what made the old crackers great was the lack of flavor, the nostalgia, and the dunking/inserting of hot sauce before your 3-way, Chilito, and Coney with mustard would arrive at your table. Call me old fashioned, but I liked my Oyster crackers tasting like Oyster crackers, not butter flavored Doritos.
It’s actually upsetting to me. I need my #1 guy to be a boss, savage, and .330 hitter all wrapped up into 1, not a complete dink celebrating like a weirdo in front of like 6 fans at Spring Training in Goodyear, Arizona. Like would you rather have and Anthony Rizzo (a boss btw), hitting at .275 or Votto at .315? I’m getting to the point where I think the intangible leadership (Like Rizzo) is where the real value lies. I need a leader, a pure savage, and someone that has an unquenchable thirst for Home Runs and Votto isn’t that, and until he is I’m not gonna look at him dinking around spring training as funny. It’s really just weird.
