Reds Opening Night!

Opening Night of the 2014 Reds baseball season was against the St. Louis whiny birds.
The night began with a two-hour and 40-minute rain delay before the first pitch. And we
patiently watched the Reds Twitter and Fox Sports Ohio for word on when OR if the game
would actually start. And as soon as we heard they were going to actually start the game,
we hustled down to Great American Ball Park...

At end of the first inning, it was already 10:07pm...

Okay, 10:08pm...

It was like watching a game out on the west coast. But right here in the middle of the west.
Right time, Wong location. Just like Kolten Wong from the whiny birds...
Reds Opening Night
Right player, Wong team. Thanks to Genifer for reminding of that joke from last season. :)

The view from our seats...

Oh geez, man... I thought our seats were right next to The Gap at GABP, not the crack. :/
Tony Cingrani was throwing fire from the mound for the Reds...

Racking up strikeouts. Maybe we'll get free pizza at our first game of the season? Votto...

Don't leave the ump hanging, Joey. Geez. And couple batters later, Wacha, the St. Louis
pitcher, managed to hit both Ryan Ludwig and the ump. Jerk.

There were a lot of zeros up there in the Reds lineup...

Bases were loaded for the Reds...

And nothing. Time for some nachos...

Oh nachos, we missed you so. :) The Rusty Griswald's hung in there and kept playing...

Offense? There wasn't much tonight...

Not much, at all. But you can't beat being back at the ballpark!

There were some new faces...

I've honestly never heard of Bernadina before. And 11:45...

The US Men's National Team was playing a friendly versus Mexico at 11:45. Time to go.

As we were leaving, we got a glimpse of the new Reds Brewery District Bar, which is an
85-foot-long bar on the third base side of the lower level...

It features 60 taps with 23 different local, regional and national beers...

GABP is so beautiful...

The Reds would go on to win 1-0 on a walk-off single by Chris Heisey. He scorched an 0-1
pitch for a line drive into left-center field to end the game in dramatic fashion! It's so good to
have Reds baseball back in Cincinnati! Oh, and the Reds pitchers tallied 12 strikeouts so...
we get our first FREE LaROSA'S PIZZA of the season!!! HOORAY for the Reds!
