Get used to seeing the above in my social media. It is the hashtag of Marty Brenneman’s signature sign off after Cincinnati wins a game “And This One Belongs To The Reds.” We won’t hear it again after this season as Marty is retiring and replacement announcers are careful not to co-opt it while he is away.
So yes, Cincinnati won their opening day game and I figure with the 150th anniversary of the first professional baseball team and the 100th Findlay Market Opening Day parade we have enough omens to plan for a good season. I know there are 161 more games to go, but Go Reds!
I’ll try to measure my enthusiasm and in the coming days will feature Broadway Previews and recipes – but hey, Go Reds!
