  1. DevilsAdvocate says:

    I don’t need to win
    I rescued Tiny Casey
    Thanks Red Hot Mama


    Krivsky gets Castro?
    What could be the rationale?
    He’s invincible


    Wily Mo is gone
    But he’s fondly remembered
    As bait for Bronson


    Bullpen is so bad
    How bad is it? Must hope that
    Balfour can pitch in.


    Cincinnati Reds
    Two thousand six champions


    Milton grows a beard
    Really turns things around, while
    Marge rolls in her grave


    Quin-Ton still with club
    Can’t buy hit, made fielding flub
    To the minors, bub.


    I don’t need to win
    Saved Casey, won those prizes
    But wouldn’t refuse.

    Castellini says
    Krivsky is my man for now
    But the Reds must win

  3. Zeldink says:

    Carlton Fisk homers
    But the Reds win the Series
    Go Big Red Machine

  4. Joel says:

    Reds Reds Reds Reds Reds
    Reds Reds Reds Reds Reds Reds Reds
    Reds. I like the Reds.

  5. Red Hot Mama says:

    Wonderful! I now have more entries than I have prizes. Thanks, guys.

    Joel, your creativity never ceases to amaze me.

  6. DaveMassey says:

    I watched “Bull Durham.”
    Not as good as I recall.
    Kevin Costner . . . Yikes.

  7. riverotter says:

    Fisk homer for naught
    ’75 Big Red team
    Not to be denied

    The Big Red Machine
    ’75 World Series
    DVD for me?

  8. savafan says:

    The Reds are my team,
    breath hanging on every pitch
    praying for a win.

  9. tempdjphob says:

    Saw Nacho Libre
    He has the proper mustache
    Javy has a twin

  10. sheri says:

    Gotta love them Reds
    Never a fair-weather fan
    Root until the end!

  11. KC2HMZ says:

    Before I submit an entry, I gotta do my job here.

    Hard Facts Staff comment on the promo material RHM quoted: The BoSox had two rookies of the year on their ’75 team, Fred Lynn (1975) and Carlton Fisk (1972). So did the Reds – Pete Rose (1963) and Johnny Bench (1968). The Reds also traded away a third Rookie of the Year (Tommy Helms, 1966) in 1971 along with Lee May and Jimmy Stewart to the Astros for Joe Morgan, Denis Menke, Jack Billingham, Cesar Geronimo, and Ed Armbrister in the trade that turned them from a marginal contender into the BRM.

    OK, now to make this an official entry: In a twist of fate as odd as me (who actually watched the 1975 WS) winning one of those DVD sets, it’s Reds vs. Red Sox in the 2006 World Series, and:

    Boston fans will pout
    Pena makes the final out
    Bronson wins in rout

    John (HMZ)

  12. jbsh56 says:

    Bronson, Brandon, Dave,
    Krivsky moves mysterious,
    Each a coup, thank you

  13. momomo says:

    Female, twenty-three
    Never did live in Cincy
    Irrational love

  14. steveky3 says:

    Kearns has such big ears
    the bullpen brings me to tears
    White Sox fans are queers

  15. PTjvs says:

    Would you guys believe
    I registered for this game
    after weeks lurking?

    Tonight I go back
    to watching games on tv
    time to beat the Mets!

  16. bucknutz says:

    In ’75,
    played Army in Germany.
    Missed World Series.

  17. chappy6655321 says:

    Daft defense dallies
    Badgered bullpen bandies balls
    Reds rule regardless

  18. RedLegs Fan says:

    In April said I
    The RedLegs are playoff bound
    How crazy was I

  19. HoosierRedLegs says:

    Griffey is the best
    Sweetest swing in all the land
    Injuries be damned


    I hope this year’s it
    No pennant since I was three
    The wait’s killing me

  20. larkin11 says:

    A few to submit..

    The Cards are Toppled
    The Cubs lose like they always do
    Yes, the Reds are champs!

    Tigers versus Reds
    What a grand series it will be
    Oh, who would have thought it?

    Doubt all you want to
    But real Reds fans know the truth
    The Reds are back again

    Cards are holding strong
    Reds fighting to October
    But Cubbies still suck

    Always heard of past glory
    Film was my only witness
    ‘Till the Reds of new
