I was with a friend of mine the other day and he was asking why I’m not into baseball anymore. I used to be pretty into it but I barely follow it anymore. I couldn’t even tell you the Reds starting lineup.
I’m not sure what it was. Maybe the lockout. But I think a big part of it is that there’s too much player movement for me; it’s just hard to stay loyal and involved. I realized this the other day when Eric Davis was being interviewed. Eric Davis is a Giant. I’m sorry, but that’s just wrong. And to this very day, seeing Paul O’Neill in a Yankee uniform is just weird to me.
So yeah, it was just too hard to keep up with and too heartbreaking for me. But I’ll always have a special place in my heart for the 1990 Cincinnati Reds.
