I heard on the radio that the soonest Great American Ballpark could host the All-Star Game would be 2008. I hope the Queen City hosts the game soon. I remember 1988, and I wanted to be there but was unable.

We’ve got a great ballpark now, and even though I don’t really care about the All-Star Game anymore, it would be fun to attend one in Cincinnati.

    It is a good ball park, with some of the intimate characteristics of Crosley Field. But we missed out on the Cincinnati skyline in the background, like in Pittsburgh, because the County caved in to Mike Brown when he threateded to move the Bengals. Too bad because the ‘Reds are what Cincinnati is about!’
