Hope all of you out there in Redleg Nation are having a marvelous holiday season!
Here at Redleg Nation World Headquarters, we’re enjoying some quiet time with family (including my youngest brothers, who are visiting from their home in China, of all places). What’s happening where you are? I want to hear all about the Reds-related swag you received for Christmas or, in the alternative, what cool Reds gifts did you give to others?
A co-worker got me the sweet piece of memorabilia — over there on the left — from Johnny Bench’s Home Plate restaurant. Great gift.
So…how was your Christmas?
From a WLW tweet, I saw this 1992 Christmas Special on WLWT, “All-Star Cincinnati Night Before Christmas.” Give it a watch today:
If that’s not your cup of tea, how about this video of Reds players from the past and present joining together to sing the 12 Days of Christmas? Or Marty Brennaman talking about whether Santa is real.
No? What about Reds Hot?
Oooohhhhhhhhhh…I know what you’re looking for. You want to celebrate with highlights of the 2016 Cincinnati Reds season!
I sincerely hope all of you are having a wonderful holiday season, however you choose to celebrate it. Thanks for being the heart and soul of Redleg Nation all throughout the year.
