IMT wins the Reds Spring Training cap and Better Off Red t-shirt. 

How about another chance to win a cap and BOR shirt?  Ok, good.

I’m really digging this band…


You should follow @monstersandmen! Since you’ve just discovered them and they’re great. I love them as well.


I know they’ve been in your rotation, but after blowing up at CMJ and SXSW, it’s been cool to see this group starting to get a piece of the limelight (Conan, etc.) and being totally gracious about the support.

Follow @M_Hedberg. It’s just an account that puts out old Mitch Hedberg jokes everyday. Always puts a smile on my face

You should follow beavis and butthead, because they are hilarious and they have a hot chick of the day!

@si_vault (Andy Gray) – he posts great pictures. Whether I win or not, follow him! Or follow me of course!

@JDHarm the official TV watcher and clip puller for The Howard Stern Show and he is a Cincinnati native and Reds fan.

RevRunWisdom Inspiration and humbling all at the same time.

you should follow me @justjoeradio, cuz I need more followers. #shameless

@TracyJordanTGS — pretty sure its handled by NBC.. fantastic. I’ve yet to find a good fictional Arrested Development twitter account, or I’d recommend that.

I think you should follow Fr. Kyle Schnippel @fatherschnippel. Not only is he a man with nice collars he’s a huge @Reds fan! I’m sure he would give @jamieblog a huge “Holler from the collar!”

my votes goest to @momomilkbar best pastry shop in NYC! Chef Tossi also does a “ask the chef” on Friday’s so always getting trade tips and ideas!

@wrong again you can guess things during games and win cool things and use it as giveaways

Ummm…hello? You need to follow….me! (shameless, I know) but I need more followers…and hey! I like cats.🙂

@OMGreds Great Reds helmet nachos reviews!

You should follow @kelly_clarkson The First, the Best American Idol. she is pretty, smart, very talented and her song “Breakaway” gave me the courage to leave my home of 59 years and move to Kentucky to be with my one and only child. Her songs are being used all over the music world, TV, Radio, Movies, commercials, etc. She is coming to Riverbend Aug 14, tickets go on sale this Friday the 20th, we’ll be there what about you????

you should follow @tfln (TextsFromLastNight)…because it is hillarious!

You need to talk S.LeCure into getting a twitter acct. for his mustache then we could all follow @LeStache!

I think you should follow @bullpenbrian. He was raised in Fairfield and growing up and through college was a devoted Reds fan, however since moving to Chicago his loyalty has switched. The reason you should follow him though is because he is a fellow blogger, Although it is a Cubs blog, he does often provide interesting analysis of other teams. I am not a Cubbies fan, I remain loyal to the Redlegs, but I do read his blog, tweets and facebook with much interest, not only because he is a friend, but because he knows his stuff.

You should follow @arkaikclothing so you will know what the kids are wearing these days!

You should follow @darrenrovell. He is the Emmy Award winning sports business reporter for CNBC and this guy tweets a lot – mostly with sports business related info but occasionally with good food and beer tweets.

Rex chapmen he’s so funny and a reds fan. He’s also good about responding to tweets

You should follow me because…well like my twitter description says, I tweet/retweet “A little bit of this, a little bit of that, & a whole lot of nothing”…and by nothing I mean sports, music, beer, whatever strikes me as fancy. Enjoy!

A buddy of mine, Jay Stancil, @jaystancil. He’s the sports information director at Union College in Kentucky. A thoughtful and insightful person, hip to this whole social media thing, loves running (perhaps inspiration? I certainly need it). Baseball fan but doesn’t tweet endlessly about it…everybody needs a break from time to time.

Please follow @chrisinrealtime always inspirational…I am going on being a 4 year survivor of Pancreatic cancer. I have been a huge Reds fan since I was a kid…..loved watching Johnnie Bench and Dave Concepcion among others! Would love to rock out some Reds wear in the northeast!

you shold follow @greatestquotes they provide great quotes from famous people that provide inspiration to get through the dat

I’ll suggest @DhaniJones. Funny, intelligent, personable & charitable, the former NFL player and current TV personality, bow tie aficionado & Renaissance Man still has close ties to Cincinnati from his time as a Bengal, including an ownership stake in Mount Adams’ Bow Tie Cafe.

@johnfayman Because he is The Banker.

@lifehacker – gotta keep up with tech & life tips, especially for getting things done efficiently

Old Hoss radbourne might be the best dead baseball Twitter account ever. I think that he won’t make a “grace” report of the Reds season so far!

Indianapolis Colts kicker Pat McAfee @PatMcAfeeShow because how many other people do you know who have been arrested after taking a drunken swim in the canal in Indy? Plus, he calls Indy “Windianapolis” and you coin all kinds of cute terms like that!

@NPHFoodPorn is where Neil Patrick Harris posts pictures of his FANTASTIC meals that I’ll never afford in my lifetime. But fun to look at and dream of anyway.

Dwayne Johnson@the rock because not only one of. The most. Popular people he always has time for his fans and always says such inspired things and very smart. He always tries to give back and always positive. Never a dual moment with him
