Apart from Hobbs, the only bright spot to this season has been C Trent's blog. Sure, it has a certain Bluto Blutarski tone to it, but it's refreshing to have a voice from my generation in there. It's not that I have anything against guys who were too old to serve in Korea - I love Hal, Marty and Joe. And the parade of baby boomers have all been adequate: Timmeh, Vulture, the Bank President, tha Godfatha, "Fuck You" Lonnie Wheeler, Sir Mix-A-Lot and the rest.
Basically, this is all an excuse to say how much I like C Trent for calling out Reds fans. "We Boo Because You Suck" was a wonderful, dark-hearted moment for the fans. We'll always have those days. Hell, we seem to be right back there again. But I like that C Trent completely disrespects the notion that every baby born in Cincinnati is touched by Tim McCarver and Joe Morgan at birth, allowing them to boo with infallibility for the rest of their $8 beer-sippin' lives.
