Must See TV For Cincinnati Reds Fans
What a great idea: FSN Ohio will televise classic Cincinnati Reds games – complete games! – for nine weeks, starting 8 p.m. Monday.
Leading off: Pete Rose, of course. Pete breaks Ty Cobb’'s all-time hit record with No. 4,192 from Sept. 11, 1985, at old Riverfront Stadium against the San Diego Padres.
Thom Brennaman and Jeff Brantley will host these "Reds Classic Rewind" telecasts at 8 p.m. Tuesday, which will run three hours or so.
The rest of the FSNO lineup:
Jan. 21: 1990 NLCS Game 6 vs.
Jan. 28: 1990 World Series Game 4 vs.
Feb. 2: 1978 Tom Seaver’s no hitter vs.
Feb 11: 2006 Reds comeback vs.
Feb.18: 1988 Tom Browning’s perfect game vs. Dodgers at Riverfront, Sept. 16, 1988.
Feb 25: 1975 World Series game 3 vs.
March 3: 1975 World Series game 6 vs.
March 10: 1975 World Series game 7 vs.
Why didn’t someone think of this before? What a great way to forget about the writers’ strike!
If they do it again next winter, which games would you love to see again? First on my list would be Game 2 of the 1990 World Series, with Joe Oliver's game-winning RBI in 10th inning off Hall of Famer Dennis Eckersley.
