Red Hot Mama To Visit Caravan

As I alluded to before, I'll be attending the Reds Winter Caravan stop in Indianapolis from 5-7 p.m. Thursday night.


The event will go down at Pinheads at SR 37 and 141st St. You can find the directions here. The Pinheads website looks really cheesy and plays obnoxious music. I am really, REALLY looking forward to this event.

Scheduled to appear in Indy are:

  • Manager Jerry Narron
  • Broadcaster Marty Brennaman
  • Other broadcaster Steve Stewart
  • Reds Hall of Famer Lee May
  • Senior director of business operations Phil Castellini
  • Casey-trade booty Dave Williams
  • the Minor League Player of the Year, to be announce tomorrow night

I'm in a bit of a pickle because all the questions I had ready to ask were for Dan O'Brien, who, surprisingly, is no longer planning to attend. Maybe Williams will be able to tell me when the Reds are going to land those two additional second basemen they'd need to field one at every position.

If you're going to be anywhere near the north side of Indy on Thursday afternoon, do stop by and say hi. I'll be the brunette in the red sweater. Be the first one to identify me, and get a free copy of Funnyball. Be a subsequent person to identify me, and get a broad smile and a hearty handshake.

If you can't make it to Pinheads, at least you'll be able to enjoy my full write-up of the event. Maybe I can even rig up some cheesy music for the occasion.

    Hey, where’s the bouncing birthday heads for Vern Ruhle (55) and Anderson Machado (25) today??? I’m starting to think you’re not a real fan and you only care about the Latin Love Machine.

    You raise an excellent point, Joel, and I really appreciate you taking the time to contribute it to the comments. It means a lot to me to receive honest feedback from my readers, especially those with diverse opinions from my own.

    I do wish my crack technical staff had the time and resources to create a bouncing birthday head for every person associated with the organization, but unfortunately, that’s just not a realistic option right now. And, yes, you’re probably right that I’m not as good a fan because of it, but rest assure that I’m trying to get better.

    Thanks again for contributing your point of view. It’s valuable to me to understand the areas where I can continue to develop RHM and myself.

    So, RHM…

    Wanna make out?

    Why? OMG – Did we sign Clemens??

    ::time passes while I frantically check the official site and Lancaster’s blog::

    Oh, I guess not. And I got my hopes all up and everything.

    Actually, I just gave out my URI at the Reds Caravan, so who knows what kind of official people might be showing up.

    So, you see, I can’t make out with you right now; I need to save up all my kissing for kissing up.

    Well, I certainly won’t give up hope.
