Why do I care?

With just a couple of weeks left in the season, and the Reds completely out of it, why do I care about Wily Mo Pena hitting a homer to put the Reds up four in the ninth? Why do I sit in my home and cheer for that? Why do I get excited about a super pitching performance from Aaron Harang? Why do I care about the Reds beating the Cubs at this point in the season.

Because I’m a Reds fan. Period. For better or for worse, I’m going to enjoy a Reds win.

Why do I care? I’m not sure, but I do care.

  1. You care because you’re probably a life-long Reds fan like a lot of us. No matter where I might live in the world I’d still be a Reds fan right to the bitter end. With me the fact that the Reds are in one of the smallest metropolitan areas in MLB has always been a factor. Like after the Bengals, I always root for the Packers because they’re in even a smaller met. area.
