I Have Playoff Tickets! (Go Reds!)

Last night's Reds/Mets game left me depressed - poor Cincinnati simply cannot put together a long enough run of positive results (i.e. wins) to overtake St. Louis for the division crown.  As such, my Reds will have to play Pittsburgh in a one game playoff...a game that the Reds should win but anything can happen in a single game.  This makes me nervous!

Even worse, I have tickets to the Reds first (real) home playoff game...which means I need the Reds to win the Wild Card game so that I can attend my first ever playoff game (along with my dad who is also a lifelong Reds fan).  I was lucky enough to "win" the lottery drawing that allowed me the opportunity to then purchase tickets from the Reds' box office.  Of course, getting to Cincinnati is going to prove sort of tricky for a guy living in central PA, but if the Reds manage to get to the real playoffs you better believe that my dad and I will both be at the game!

Here's hoping I'm happy in about a week's time!

Good luck, I hope you get to go to the game! I went to the lone playoff game back in 2010 - it was kind of a depressing day. I witnessed the Bengals blow a lead to Tampa Bay and then the Phillies finalize a sweep of the Redlegs. Hopefully this postseason they exercise some demons!

That's cool and cool picture too! Shots like that are awesome. That's also the reason why I bring my camera into the game, I collect nice shots of the actual game.
