I can’t begin to tell you how grateful I am for all of your kind words. I’ve heard from many of you through this site, as well as our radio e-mail address. I’ve spoken with other fans around the ballpark. This has got to be the nicest fan base in all of baseball.
This is and continues to be an incredible opportunity for me. It is ?the greatest job in the history of jobs,? broadcasting Reds baseball and working with Marty. I continue to learn from him every day. Whatever I do after this season ends, I’m a better broadcaster and a better person for what I’ve been a part of these past three years. Just to say it one more time, they gave me this news in August because I wanted to know my status as soon as possible. I thank them for being upfront. You can be assured that the organization you root for is run by first-class people from top to bottom. And the excitement we’ve experienced this season is just the beginning.
I’ll keep this brief, but thanks again, and don’t worry about me. I’ll be fine. Focus on the final stretch of what’s been an incredibly fun season. That’s what I’m focusing on.
And, yes, the Philly photos will be up soon… still have to get pics of Marty’s cat Palmer and of our scorebooks too?
