A Friday with Reds baseball.

We got up extra early this morning to run a couple of errands before work. But first, we had to walk the dogs. It was a little hazy this morning. The hill off in the distance looked extra distant today…

Good morning from Northside…

Our little shrub in our front yard is so blossomy…

We ran to Lowe’s so Genifer could get another gallon of paint for the living room. And then we swung through Mad Llama for coffee

And we made it back home for my 9am meeting. It turned out to be a very pretty day…

Good evening from Northside…

And then we watched the entire Reds game, from the first pitch until the last…

The Reds looked formidable as they beat the Tigers 7-1. It was really good to watch the Reds again! And it’s so amazing to have MLB back in our lives. While we were watching the game, Oscar snuck in between the sofa and the ottoman…

It was such a pretty evening…

It was a really good Friday. It’s terrific to have baseball back! 😀⚾️❤️

Baseball is back!

Welcome back baseball! Our Redlegs look like they have a pretty good team this year…

This is going to be a very unique, one-of-a-kind season the likes of which will hopefully never happen again. It should make the baseball really interesting…

With the COVID-19 shortened regular season only being 60 games long, every game is really going to matter. And I hope baseball can make it all the way through the regular season to get the expanded playoffs…

Because that sounds like it would be a blast! Fingers crossed that the COVID-19 doesn’t ruin this too. 😀⚾️🦠❤️

I don’t understand why baseball didn’t try to create a bubble just like the other major North American sports. After a rocky start, the MLS bubble seems to be holding really well and the so far the NBA bubble seems to be intact too. It’ll be interesting to see if the MLB made a huge mistake by not creating a bubble in Arizona with all the little spring training ballparks out there. I guess we’ll find out.

One. More. Day.

Baseball is back tomorrow! We’re so excited to finally get to watch our Redlegs again!

And where it’ll be incredible to have MLB baseball back, I’ve been enjoying the MLS is Back tournament so much. I’ve watched every match of the tournament either live or recorded or both. It’s been so much fun to watch. I’ve really looked forward to the matches with the 9am kickoffs every morning over the last couple of weeks. It’s been awesome to get ready for work and then be able to listen to a live soccer match while I settle in and start my workday. Today was the last day of the group stage play. And unfortunately, I think that means no more 9am kickoffs.

Now that the morning soccer matches are over, I’m probably going to go back to listening to the KBO baseball games as I start work each day. I’ve been missing my Doosan Bears baseball during the soccer tournament.

I’m really happy that sports are back. It makes the world feel a little more normal again. 😀⚾️⚽️🇰🇷📺❤️

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! 🤗⚾️😍

Happy Pitchers & Catchers Day!

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! ❤⚾❤
