How ’bout these apples (seats)?


Many thanks to Doug Meyers who graciously offered me a ticket to today’s Opening Day game on Sunday. I gladly accepted.
On the walk down from my place in Over-the-Rhine – where I had a party to watch the parade – he casually mentioned we would be about 10ish rows back from the field.
Thank you, Doug! What a fun time… And the Reds won…and looked good doing it.
