Deskey’s Opening Day Celebration

Deskey hosted their annual Opening Day Celebration

It was a pretty fun afternoon. Thankfully, I didn’t have to do any Opening Day front window installations this year. Click to see all the photos I took at Deskey’s Opening Day Celebration. 😀⚾️🌭🏆❤️

HAPPY OPENING DAY!

HAPPY OPENING DAY! Baseball is finally back! 🤗⚾️😍

Opening Day Parade Party.

They’ve kind of made a mess of the start of the baseball season this year. The season officially started last Thursday but the first Reds game was rained out and played on Friday. In Cincinnati, there’s always the big Findlay Market Opening Day Parade before the first game and it’s always been on Opening Day for as long as I long as I’ve lived in Cincinnati. But this year’s parade wasn’t until today. Because I guess the parade has to be on a Monday for some reason. Today, we also had our annual Opening Day Party at work. There was big grill out with all sorts of food…

And we played a bunch of different games like pin the baseball on the catcher…

It made for a very fun afternoon at work celebrating the return of another baseball season to Cincinnati. 😀⚾️🍔🌭❤️

Happy Opening Day!

It’s one of the best days of the year… baseball is back! Hooray!

Happy Opening Day from Cincinnati! 😀⚾️❤️

ps. Is it just me or is it weird that they chose to start the baseball season on a Thursday… in March? And it’s somehow poetic justice that the Reds first game was rained out and will be played tomorrow. They should have just started the season on a Monday… in April like they’ve always done before.

Reds Opening Night 2017.

Today is National Walking Day! Even though the forecast called for lotsa rain, I really couldn’t imagine a better way to celebrate than taking a walk down to Great American Ball Park for Reds Opening Night 2017! We parked by Lytle Park and walked down to the game…

I’ve been to every single Opening Night since 2010, and Genifer and I have been to every Opening Night together since 2012…

One of GABP’s new fatures this year is the Teppanyaki Grill featuring a $15 Bahn Mi sammich and a $20 Lobster Tail. Lobster Tail is baseball food right?

Also new is a Cheetos Popcorn stand. You can have Cheetos right in your popcorn…

The Fox Sports Ohio condominium was packed…

Another new food offering is Keystone mac & cheese…

A rainbow started to appear on the other side of the river…

Votto went yard to give the Reds a 1-0 lead…

Then Adam Duvall doubled. And Zack Cozart singled in DuvAll-Star to give the Reds a 2-0 lead. The Reds Brandon Finnegan tossed 7 innings of 1 hit ball with 9 Ks

Michael Lorenzen came into the game to get us strikeout number 10…

And NUMBER 11!

AND THAT MEANS…

Raisel Iglesias came in to pitch the ninth and try to seal the deal for the Reds…

And this one belongs to the…

The final out of the game was a Philly getting caught stealing at second. But then the play was reviewed and the runner was called safe at second…

But it just gave Rasiel Igelsias the chance to notch another strikeout instead. BOOM!
AND THIS ONE BELONGS TO THE REDS!

What an incredible Reds Opening Night! The Reds won, Brandon Finnegan tossed seven fierce innings giving up just 1 hit with 9 Ks, Votto went yard, we get free Larosas pizza from the Reds 13 Ks, we got a free Reds 2017-18 calendar, the rain stayed away from the most part and we saw a rainbow! That’s what I call a great Opening Night!
⛈⚾❤🍕🍕🌧🌈👍💯 🙂

HAPPY OPENING DAY!

I designed this Opening Day graphic to hang in our front windows at work…

And I had my #CapsOn for Opening Day…

I wore one of my favorite Reds ballcaps for #CapsOn Opening Day. I won this hat in a giveaway from Skyline. It’s one of my favorite caps because it has two of my favorite Cincinnati things embroidered on it, Reds and Skyline…

Baseball is back! We can’t wait for Opening Night! ❤⚾❤

Happy Pitchers and Catchers Day!

The first real sign of Spring is here! Pitchers and catchers report for spring training today! It won’t won’t be long until we’re finally watching Reds baseball again! And I can’t wait. Remember when we went to Spring Training out in Arizona last spring? It was an amazing week! I don’t know that this season will ever be able to compete the awesomeness that was last season. And I know we’re not going to even try to get close to the 46 Reds games we went to during the All-Star summer. But I can definitely see us making it down to 20+ Reds games at GABP this season. And the Reds may be rebuilding but really, who cares? Baseball is back! ⚾🌵 🙂
