We need some fun stuff today, don’t we? Well, a quick FYI: we’ve updated all of our “fun stuff” pages. Links are below, but you can always access these pages using the bar up there at the top.
–Loyal Citizen jdarts has contributed some new wallpapers to celebrate the division championship. I don’t think he’s made a Roy Halladay wallpaper yet, but stay tuned.
–A couple of new insane jerseys, including one from the night Jay Bruce hit his division-clinching homer.
–Two new contributions to the RN Around The World page. One is a minor celebrity sighting; the other is a picture of my brother.
I love the pic of my brother. He lives in China, and went to an exhibition game that MLB played over there. They don’t get much baseball, so he couldn’t pass it up, but on a daily basis, he survives by reading RN. (Surprisingly, it’s one of the few sites that isn’t blocked.) Anyway, at the game, he was walking through the parking lot and ran into a random Reds fan. He said he ran over and asked the guy to have a picture taken. Who knows what this guy was thinking when a 6’4″ American came running at him.
This is the same brother who ran with the bulls in Pamplona a couple of months ago.
–Loyal Citizen Ben Rutler sent in some new banners for the header above. See if you can pick out the new ones. Thanks, Ben.
Feel free to email me if you have any pictures to submit for any of these projects.
–Finally, I had to link to this series of caricature sketches of Reds players that the Enquirer posted. Those are great but then, I’m easily amused.
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
