In a world in which seemingly everybody has their own talk show, now everybody also has their own blog, including me. Some nice folks in the Reds front office approached me and asked if I’d like to give this a try. I said "sure."
As Marty can attest, I’m rarely at a loss for words. So, what the heck?
I figure, I’ve got the best job in the world. I work with a Hall of Fame announcer, a man who keeps me and everybody else laughing every day. On occasion I get to work with Joe, who has been great to me too. What Reds fan wouldn’t want to be in my shoes? So why not take you on this "ride" that is the Reds season?
I know there are a lot of these types of forums available. Reds’ beat writer Marc Lancaster has done a super job keeping fans updated on things. What will this blog be about? Ask me after the season, and I’ll have a better idea. It will definitely be about the Reds and baseball, but it’ll also be about things away from the field, life on the road, etc.
Someone figured the "Bad Boy Blog" was a catchy title, so that’s what we’ve got. The number one question I get from fans is, "Where’d you get your nickname?"
Maybe I’ll save that one for the next entry.
Regarding the Reds, what an unbelievable last couple of days ? Wednesday at home and Thursday in Milwaukee. We all know the pitching needs to get better, but to comeback from 5-0 and 8-4 down to win? And from 6-2 down to win? Entertaining, but I’m sure Jerry Narron would like to win a little less dramatically. This Milwaukee team is a good measuring stick for the Reds, especially with the problems the Reds have had here in the past!
You can leave comments and questions for me at the end of this post. I encourage your feedback. Please keep it civil and clean, since my mom will be reading it.
Time for another brat(wurst, that is)…
