And no I'm not talking about what adoring fans yell as the great Bruce Springsteen sings Born to Run in a concert in the Meadowlands. I'm talking about Jay Bruce of the Cincinnati Reds. He has burst onto the scene this past week in Cincinnati and has lifted the Reds within 3 games of a .500 record.

He hit 4-5 last night and he is hitting 8-14 overall with 3 doubles and 3 RBIs. He's also stolen 2 bases. And all of this has happened in 4 games. Now this is all just a lot of hype. But imagine this, in a few years the Reds could have a power house with Encanarcion, Keppinger, Phillips, Votto, Harriston Jr., and Jay Bruce. I mean in 5 years we could be filled with all stars.

And in the mean time we'll just have to sit back and wait for the good times to get here. But, I think they're slowly starting to come back. Last night we had attendance of over 37,000. Just about 5,000 short of a sell out. And the numbers should keep growing as this beautiful weekend progresses. And I'm glad to say that I already have my ticket reserved for Sunday's game, and series finale against the Braves!

Sorry that this is my first post in a while. School became so busy with tennis and exams!

Rolling Reds

"And this one belongs to the Reds!" The familar cry has now been heard three straight days in Cincinnati. The Reds pulled out a nice victory over the St. Louis Cardnials. We'll see if they can continue their streak tonight as they try to inch closer to the .500 mark for the 2008 year.

I lost my doubles match today 2-6, 2-6. Although I did play varsity for the fourth time this year. Which is pretty good for a player who as played for only a month and a half.

Sunday Recap

As you will find out the Cleveland Caveliers and the Cincinnati Reds are two of my favorite teams. Both did rather well yesterday. The Reds won a decisive 10-1 victory over the Giants. Brandon Phillips busted out of his slump yesterday going deep twice. They have a big series to end April aginst the St. Louis Cards. Hopefully they can start to claw their way back to the .500 mark.

The Cavs went up 3-1 in their series with a clutch 3 in the waning seconds by Delonte West. They'll be headed back to Cleveland for game 5, where they should close out the series and go on to face, most likely, the Boston Celtics.

And today my tennis match was rained out but I was down when we left off at 3-6, 1-2.
