BASELINE ITEMS: 6/21

Howdy folks!  I’ve got a few things for ya today before the lineup is posted…

First off, congratulations goes out to Kim Bell, who successfully participated in yesterday’s Trivia for a Shirt contest!

Kim correctly answered “Johnny Bench” to yesterday’s question, and has randomly been selected to receive a brand new, limited edition Better Off Red t-shirt and a pair of Magic Reds Shoelaces.  Good job, Kim! 

We’ll play again next week, so stay tuned.

…..

We have just one participant in this week’s Reds Tattoosday.  Check it out…

Philip H. of Lebanon, OH

If you’d like to show off your Reds ink, simply email a photo to me at jramsey@reds.com and you’ll be featured in the next installment of Reds Tattoosday! 

Reds Tattoosday’s #1 fan, Jonny Gomes, is getting some new ink in a couple of weeks and  Better Off Red has been invited to film the “procedure,” so stay tuned….

…..

And don’t forget your creative Burt BobbleRed photos! 

Here’s one submitted by Colin Devine

Here is my photoshopped picture of Votto accepting the Burt BobbleRed Award. (I can't imagine an award better than that.)

…..

There’s a young lady working here at Great American Ball Park named Pat Webb, who thinks I look like this guy:

Here’s Pat’s explanation:

Jamie,
Here’s the photo I promised!   This is Frank, an antique carved wooden head we’ve had for years.   With his batting helmet on, we immediately thought he looked like you! hahaha    Enjoy!
Pat

I don’t know, Pat.  You used to be one of my favorites around here!

I hope you’ve been enjoying the Paul McCartney-altered Reds songs! 

Today, I’m handing the keys (pun intended) to Julie Muething, one half of The Royal Ladies of Better Off Red.  Julie penned the following number to be sung to the McCartney classic “When I’m Sixty-Four“…. 

When you go out to see a Reds game,
There are great give-aways!
The Rally Pack gives pom-poms, also “Reds Win” balls,
Bronson Arroyo plush dolls!
 
Plus you’ll see players, not one of them mean,
Playing the way fans adore,
Edgar is sixteen, Joey is nineteen,
BP’s number four!
 
oo oo oo oo oo oo oo oooo
Jay is thirty-two (ah ah ah ah ah)
And when you’re at the game,
He might wave at you!
 
What fun is it to sit home alone?
Grab friends, get to the park!
They’ll be out there playing baseball rain or shine.
Got your poncho? I’ve got mine!
 
Hitting the tundra, making great plays,
Giving all they’ve got, and more!
Edgar is sixteen, Joey is nineteen,
BP’s number four!
 
Logan Ondrusek, Ramon Hernandez,
Mike Leake, Bill Bray, Ryan Hanigan,
All can pitch and catch! (ah ah ah ah ah)
Of the Reds there have been,
This is a great batch!
 
Paul Janish, “Soft J,” makes some great plays,
Stubbs is at least half deer.
If you help them win the Central (that’s their goal),
Jonny Gomes just might steal your soul!
 
So what other reasons do you need?
Baseball is what summer’s for!
Edgar is sixteen, Joey is nineteen,
BP’s number four!
 
Whoo!

…..

That’s all for now, Fonzies!  Stay cool!

It’s been a while since we’ve had some funny Burt BobbleRed photos land in our BOR inbox.  I think it’s time to stir up your creativity.   Below you’ll find photos of Burt hanging out in my office.

I’ll have more stuff later, including today’s Reds Farm Report.
