Redleg Nation Gathering – Early Discussion

Chad and I have started the discussion about having a “Redleg Nation” gathering again this summer…

This is basically an “open thread” on what team you’d like to see, how much you’d like to pay for tickets, how many tickets you would buy, etc.

My feeling is that a Saturday night is the best time for an event like this.

I looked at the schedule and saw these games as logical possibilities (though that’s not saying we couldn’t decide something different):

June 8th – St. Louis
August 3rd – St. Louis
August 10th – San Diego (Reds cap night to first 20,000 fans)
August 24th – Milwaukee

I would think if we wanted to do a Cardinal game, we’d have to move fairly quickly to get anything close to decent seats.

As for ticket prices, I’d go along with whatever we felt the consensus was…as long as it wasn’t those metal bleachers, I’m too old for that.

So, what do you think…?

  1. I vote for the the Dodgers game on July 27th Saturday at 9:10pm (did I forget to mention that’s an away game)!

    P.S. I’m probably the only Redleg Nation Member living in Los Angeles so this is totally selfish on my part.

    Go Reds!!!

  2. @rfay00: I’ll go only if there’s a promise of no violence. It’d be nice if there was something earlier than June 8th, but I can wait until then.

  3. I raise both arms, both legs, both ears, both eyebrows and make a vain attempt at any other appendages to cast a strong vote for the June 8th game against the Dirty Birds. I already have tickets to the other three August series mentioned. I would love to drag these old bones out for another game with the Nation. If we do decide on one of the August games, I will certainly mosey over for an inning or two. I am simply psyched for this season and would really enjoy spending one of the games at GABP with the Nation.

  4. Just throwing this out there, with no idea of the cost – has anyone looked into the idea of renting a suite? I may have a special discount for being a season ticket holder. Not sure. Just got back exhausted from a long travel weekend, will look at this tomorrow.

  5. August 11 is my birthday, so the 10th would be great, but I don’t want to be selfish…..I’ll take presents at one of the earilier games as well. That’s just the type of guy I am.

  6. Great idea and I am fine with any of the dates. The idea of a suite sounds pretty sweet as well. I am looking forward to meeting everyone. Also, if redsfanman is proven prophetic and Chapman does not begin the season in the rotation, I will not only change my screen name to something of his choosing, but I will also buy him a beverage of his choice (no mint julips).

  7. @L.A.Red: I live in LA! I think it would be great if we could get together an LA Redleg Nation group (assuming there’s more than the two of us…)

  8. I’m good with any date and would be very willing to spend the extra for a suite.

    I too am curious to meet redsfanman. And I promise to violence.

    Would REALLY enjoy meeting Preach and The Cossack as well as all the rest of Red Leg Nation. It would also be fun to see the editors again.

  9. In theory, I’d love to go. In practice, I’m a graduate student… and bleacher season tickets cost more than I make in a month. If I have the spare cash when the time comes to throw down money, I’ll do so.

  10. When my Brother lived in LA he told me of bars where out of towners could root (safely) for their home team. Mainly football then, but I bet there are some for BBall, too.

  11. OK, if a no violence clause must be enforced, I’ll sign on the dotted line, but can we at least have a little blanket party? That’s not really considered violence, is it?

    As soon as we confirm a game, I’ll confirm how many tickets I’ll need. Everyone is bringing their own bodyguards, right? I was also thinking that if we select an early season game and everyone has as much fun as I expect we will, we might try for another game later in the season, but that’s just a thought from the old Cossack.

  12. @TC: @rfay00: If you (or anyone else) really want to meet me I’m always up for Skyline Chili (maybe the 7707 Montgomery Road one, near the highway and mall), even during spring training. As you can tell I enjoy discussing the Reds.

    @Shchi Cossack: I won’t bring a bodyguard but I will be looking over my shoulder. Some of these guys want to meet me in particular? Kinda creepy.

      I figure we can keep our discussion for this site. It makes it easier to ignore you. lol

      Besides, I live up the road in Lebanon. Bit far for a discussion.

  13. The only thing bad about the Saturday dates are that they risk having the game time moved from 7:00pm to 4:00pm for Fox Sports. Especially the Cardinal games. Other than that though, game on. June 8, Cards.

  14. @L.A.Red: Swatch, Seat101, Brian Van Hook, Ohio Jim and any other Los Angeles (or nearby) Reds Fans:

    I think it would be awesome if the L.A. Division of Redleg Nation got together for a game as suggested by Swath.

    Some of you may have read my post last year about what Redleg Nation means to me, where I detailed how I became a Reds Fans having never lived in Cincinnati and that my Dad and I go to at least one Reds/Dodgers game every year.

    With that said I’m officially calling all the Los Angeles Reds Fans to attend a game this year! There are 4 games in L.A. this year, lets pick one and go:

    Thu, Jul 25 @ LA Dodgers 10:1OPM ET
    Fri, Jul 26 @ LA Dodgers 10:10PM ET
    Sat, Jul 27 @ LA Dodgers 9:10 PM ET Sun, Jul 28 @ LA Dodgers 4:10 PM ET

  15. @L.A.Red: Hey there! The Sunday game would probably fit best into my schedule, but if the consensus is for one of the other games, it’s possible I could attend one of those instead (or in addition to!). I haven’t been to Dodger Stadium in a few years, but typically drive to San Diego for at least one Reds game a season. …

      I can make anyone of those games (once I clear it with the wife)lol. But let’s hear from the other members and let the majority vote decided. So don’t be shy guys cast your vote for which Reds game you want to attend @ Dodgers Stadium. At last years game we lost but I got say “What’s up to Latos” Pretty Cool!

  16. I’ll do my best to make it. Unlike Redsfanman, I will sign autographs. I have no idea who’d want one though 8)
