Coming up this afternoon on Better Off Red is Day Five of the Umpteen Days of Christmas. My main man Jon “Moonshine” Cline of the Reds Authentics department stopped by BOR Headquarters this morning to drop off some more prizes!
And if you haven’t yet finished all of your holiday shopping, I encourage you to stop by the Reds Team Shop on Crosley Terrace at Great American Ball Park. You can pick up some cool Reds-related gifts and then take a break across the street at the Banks. A perfect shopping plan if you ask me.
