Our good friend Freekbass got together with Bootsy Collins and a bunch of Reds fans to make a new video for “Reds Fan.” I know most of you have already heard this; check out the update:
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
Chad launched Redleg Nation in February 2005, and has been writing about the Reds ever since. His first book, “The Big 50: The Men and Moments That Made the Cincinnati Reds” is now available in bookstores and online, at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and wherever fine books are sold. You can also find Chad’s musings about the Cincinnati Reds in the pages of Cincinnati Magazine.
Being far away, I hadn’t seen this. I especially like the kid surreptitiously donning his Reds hat when the teacher wasn’t looking. Thanks, Chad.
This is great! I’ve been a Red’s fan since I was a littler girl.
Btw — I was discussing the Red’s with my older brother the other day and we started talking about 3rd baseman Buddy Bell. He recalls a play where Bell threw the ball to 1st base from lying on his back and made the out. I would LOVE to see a video clip of it. I know the MLB online archives don’t go back that far.. any idea where I could track it down?
I’d also be curious whether anyone has listed what Reds audio clips were used in that video. … Of course, some are obvious from the broadcast itself, but for example, there is what appears to be a walkoff homer from Tony Perez, and I’m curious as to whether that was a game in which the Reds scored 4 or 5 in the ninth to beat the Giants in the first game of a doubleheader at Riverfront. I’m sure Perez had more walkoff homers than that one, but I was at that game so I wax nostaglic for it!
