The Crack Technical Staff and I are all settled in here at the Terrace Hotel in downtown Cincinnati, getting ready to head out the door to the Duke Energy Convention Center, where the doors will be opening to non-season ticket holders for Redsfest in just 18 minutes.
I like the Terrace Hotel pretty well, so far. We were able to get a non-smoking room, which we haven't been able to do in just every hotel in Cincy. It's a little smallish, and some of the stuff in the room is showing some wear, but so far so good. The Crack Technical Staff saw free wireless Internet, which it does not, but the wired Internet seems to work, so I think it's worth $10 per night.
OK, off to walk the two blocks to the 'fest. Check back regularly for updates.
Looking forward to your updates!
How’s the weather over there? I know some people who are flying in from NY just to see Bubba. I hope they don’t end up camping out in an airport somewhere.
Hey, Reds.com has a live video feed. I think I missed the new uniforms. And who are the cheerleaders? The Reds have cheerleaders?
The weather is freaking cold, but it’s not raining right now. Dave Storm told me that some of the players’ flights were delayed, so they could be held up a little, but I doubt it will last.
I’ve got photos of the new unis to post here momentarily, so you shouldn’t have missed out too much.
And, yes, the Reds have cheerleaders. It’s not really my thing.
