first time I arrived in Paris I was welcomed by this little fellow… since then we never kept long apart


2012 is going to be THE year for the Reds!

Yesterday Barry Larkin was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. He played his whole career for the Cincinnati Reds, I love players that have such a loyalty to one team! Like Colt’s player Payton Manning for example. Such players often turn out to be great teammates.

This election is actually only the first thrill we Reds fan will have this year. Great opening for the year 2012, but I know that the finish will be even greater, as I’m sure the Cincinnati Reds will end up the season with a World Series title!

Stay tuned!

2012, here I come!

Happy New Year everybody!

Since I-kinda-have-the-flue-but-am-still-working-even-thought-there-is-not-much-to-do-because-it’s-the-first-week-of-the-year, I’m taking the time to wish everybody a happy new year! As you can see, the year started just perfectly for me!

Everyone knows that this year is going to be better than next year and even better than the year before!  So let’s not wast any time with that, because we all know that 2012 is going to be the year the Reds will win the World Series

Well I for one decided not to take any new year resolutions ’cause I wouldn’t be able to keep them anyways! But I still made a sort of wish list for 2012.

The main one would be to go back to the Unites States in general and to Great American Ballpark in particular 😉 My internship ending in May, I would say that the timing is perfect. I might just need to win the lottery, no problemo! I’ll start to buy tickets tomorrow and with my luck I should be set financially for May 2012!

See y’all in May!

Baseball predictions for 2012 —> Joe Sheehan

Seems about right, I’m for sure ready for it!


10. The Reds will win the World Series.The AL has, arguably, the five best teams in baseball. The NL has that kind of parity at the top, though at a lower level of performance. In a short series, though, that doesn’t really matter — and we’ll see that again in 2012, as the Reds, winners of a weak NL Central, ride the bats of Joey Votto and Jay Bruce into the World Series, where rookie catcher Devin Mesoraco and a deep bullpen dispatch Texas in six games. The Rangers, winners of 94 regular-season games and the AL West, become just the third team — and the first since 1913 — to lose three straight Fall Classics.



Mr. LeCure pitching

You miss it, I miss it! For us baseball fans the period between October and March is just too long!

I don’t know what you do to make these between the season-times less insufferable, well, I look at my old pictures and watch the videos I took last season. Not the same I know, but good enough.

Since I’m a really nice person, I’ll share with you some of them and wish y’all to have a nice waiting time until Thursday April 5, 2012 4:10pm 😉
