But tonight will be one of those games that goes down into Reds lore like being at Homer Bailey’s second no-hitter or being at the first postseason game in the history of GABP. Because tonight will forever be known as the game when one of the Reds Power Stacks caught on fire…

I heard that Cincinnati Fire was watching the game on TV, and were at the ballpark before the call even came in to the fire station downtown…

And other than that, it was pretty much a turrible game. The Reds got killed.

Back at the ballpark for #Reds baseball game number 8 of the season with @genmae5...
#Reds versus #Braves. I love watching games from my favorite seats at GABP...
There weren’t very many people at tonight’s game. At all…
There are a surprising number of empty seats at tonight's #Reds game. :/ #RealFans

Raisel Iglesias picked up his first major league win tonight for the Reds.

Raisel Iglesias took a shutout into the eighth inning. But come to find out later, he took a no-hitter into the sixth! Marlon Byrd and Todd Frazier went yard for the Reds, and they took two out of three games from the Braves!
Another great night at GABP! #Reds #RedsWin #ATOBTTR

Reds game 7/40.

We went to our seventh Reds game of the season tonight…
It's a beautiful night for baseball at GABP.
The game was was all knotted at three. Until Devin Mesoraco came in to pinch hit in the bottom of the ninth…

And he had his first walk-off hit to propel the Reds to a 4-3 win!

The pursuit of all things Swedish.

It was a gorgeous Saturday in Cincinnati. Why wouldn’t we drive up north to Ikea?

It's gorgeous Saturday. Why wouldn't we go to @IkeaUSA?
One of the best parts about going to Ikea is grabbing a couple of 50Β’ hot dogs…

We got some odd & ends stuff but my favorite things we got were these two cacti…

They remind me of all the fun we had at Spring Training in Arizona! πŸ™‚

It’s always neat to see a blimp above your head even if you have know idea why it’s actually hovering around downtown. πŸ™‚
