Buenos Tardes

When the Reds Rocket thinks about welcoming people we're always reminded of that show with the theme song by John Sebastian, Sanford and Son. My recollection is a little foggy, since the show aired before I was born, but the episode where Mr. Redlegs replaced Boom Boom as a regular character was hilarious and emotional. I think it may also have been the episode where Mr. Kotter was arrested for possession of child pornography.

Anyway, welcome back to the Reds Rocket which now features not only our extensive archives but also new content. We look forward to hearing from all of you: Last Unitard, that foreign guy who thinks we write good and wants us to buy some product, the guy who thinks hating Dusty Baker makes you a racist (we also hate George Lopez but don't tell anyone or if you're Hispanic forget what you just read), and the other three people (who aren't members of my family) who visit on a semi-regular basis.

We have a lot of really big things planned for 2008. For example, we will continue to follow the Cincinnati Reds baseball team. We realize that the Reds Rocket has become your source for factual, unbiased baseball reporting. We plan to continue to make groundless threats to other teams and also imply that players who are not Reds are either homosexual or crap their pants when they get nervous. Like Mark DeRosa, he fits into both categories. But, we're going to try some new things as well. Like politics. Did you know Barack Obama used to go by Barry? Like the real-life Greg from the Brady Bunch, Barry Williams. That is just one example of the versatility of this particular blog.

So you barbarians, stop by once in a while but, if you're too busy, we understand. We'll probably write regardless but you never know.

Glad you're back! Been waiting since last October!

You may be a racist but your god damned funny, I'll give you that. And thanks for the shout out, I appreciate it. Now we just need that foreign guy to pipe in and we're good to go.
