This Orioles fan is seeing red

Cincinnati Reds fans have waited longer than Baltimore Orioles fans to watch their team in the post-season. The Reds’ last playoff appearance came in 1995, and they failed to make the post-season in 1999 despite winning 96 games.

Cincy fans have endured nine consecutive losing seasons (remember when nine seemed like a lot?).

And they’re forced to cheer for T.O. on football Sundays.

So it’s hard not to appreciate this.

If you’re like me, watching Jay Bruce’s division-clinching, walk-off homer against the Houston Astros sent you to daydreaming. It’s pretty easy to turn those “Bruuuuuce” cheers into “Luuuuuuke.”

Hats off to the Reds, including former Orioles pitcher Arthur Rhodes.
