Well, this just sucks.

I’m the daughter of a die-hard Reds fan. I grew up listening to Marty and Joe call games on WLW and hated every second of it. I didn’t understand the game and it was a sport, therefore for boys only. It wasn’t until I was 18 or 19 that I actually watched a game from beginning to end and was hooked. For the next couple of years I lived and died with Reds wins and losses … mostly dying. The start of each season brought new hope that that would be the year the Reds finally win it all.

Then I went back to school. Even thought I didn’t take summer classes, it was just too difficult to watch every single game. Besides, it got kind of old being known as the girl who always carried around a radio and earbuds so she can listen to the games wherever she happened to be.

So I guess I haven’t paid my dues as much as some other people, but I’m still upset that out of all the 25 baseball seasons I spent in Cincinnati, the Reds would choose this one to make it to the post season. I’m stuck in a town that doesn’t even have a baseball team (the Nats do not count). Even though I’m stuck in DC through the post-season, I’ll be cheering for the Reds and catching as many games as possible!

Here’s a clip of Bruce hitting the walk-off homer that had everyone in Redsland celebrating a merry clinchmas:

I’m something you don’t see every day: A person under 80 who walks around with oxygen everywhere she goes. I have Sjogren's Syndrome, an autoimmune disorder which, with the help of my stubborn refusal to go to the doctor, caused some pretty deep damage to my lungs. My lack of breath slowed me down for a while, but I'm back to adventuring - just with Gus, my little oxygen tank, in tow. This year's goal is to complete the 52 Hike Challenge and get myself into a healthier state of being. Join me on my quest to become oxygen free!
