Scoreboard Gourmet has a new friend. No, we don't have the same taste in baseball teams, or chowder, but we both love baseball, and neither of us is dumb (well, she's not dumb). For those of you who are dumb, or just missed the headline, my new friend is Mets Grrl (aka Caryn), and she's in Cincinnati for the Reds Home Opener v the Mets. That's 1:10pm tomorrow.
It's supposed to snow out there but I'm still a bit jealous thinking of her trip while I sit in my living room flipping back and forth between Braves/Phillies and UConn Women (thank you for taking some of the sting out of last night).
Where to Party for Reds Opening Day (per Cincinnati.com) Opening Day on The Square is from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Fountain Square, downtown. It’s free to be there, though you pay for food, drinks (did someone say Christian Moerlein?) and, of course, parking. There will be plenty of music from WSWD-FM (97.3) “The Sound” and live from Mambo Diablo and That Certain Something. If you aren’t headed to the game, watch it on Fountain Square’s big screen.
