Clint Boling is calling it quits for the Bengals, and we wish we could retire early too. The Reds are off to a crappy start to the 2nd half of the season, and we wonder if they’ll be buyers or sellers at the trade deadline. We also talk more in depth about the Reds 150th anniversary jerseys they’ve been wearing. Enjoy the show!
The Reds earned another series victory over the Cubs this past weekend, which included some fireworks between Yasiel Puig and Pedro Strop. We discuss that, David Bell’s record-setting ejection numbers and the fact that Castillo is the lone Reds All-Star. We touch on the ridiculous NBA free agency numbers and Mac and Whitty get their hopes up thanks to some late-breaking NHL free agency rumors. We also take a moment to wish are friends north of the border a Happy Canada day, as well as a Happy Fourth of July to all of our listeners here in the states.

The Reds are 1-8, and are officially depressing us. We discuss their poor start, the fight in Pittsburgh, and what it will take to turn this club around.

Now that we have a sufficient sample size to review, we provide all of our rational and irrational overreactions from the Reds’ 1-1 start. Some of the new comers haven’t gotten off to the hottest of starts, but on the bright side, they have new souvenir cups at the stadium now. We also give our thoughts on this year’s Final Four, which didn’t quite turn out exactly how we expected. Also, but congrats to Mac for winning the first annual Riverfront Radio bracket pool.
This week we kick off the show with a recap of last weekend’s Lakers/Rockets brawl as we discuss whether or not Rondo intentionally spit on Chris Paul and CP3’s reputation as a dirty player. We switch gears and recap the Bengals recent struggles coming off of an embarrassing Sunday Night Football performance, but we’re all confident that they can bounce back this week. We give our thoughts on the Reds’ signing of David Bell as their new manager and we provide an update on our weekly football picks. In honor of Halloween, we wrap up the show with a fantasy draft of our favorite Halloween costume ideas.
Is this a bit of an overreaction on my part? Maybe, but why be a fan if you can’t get excited about a major organizational change that seems to be the right move? It might also be the fact that I’m in a good mood because the Bengals haven’t had the chance to break my heart yet today. Continue reading →
