Man, is it a beautiful day. Birds are singing, insects are buzzing, squirrels and bunnies are bounding about. The sort of day that can really put things in perspective. Today, I have freed myself of my self-imposed obligation to the Cincinnati Reds.
The last thing I want to bother myself with on such a gorgeous day is another man's hamstring injury. Everyone knows hamstring injuries linger. I refuse to be beholden any longer to a baseball team that cannot bother to put its hurt players on the disabled list. Why should I deign to follow such a team that shows such disregard for me? I celebrate myself, etcetera.
Anyway, I am going on hiatus; from the Reds and consequently from Red Reporter. I am no fair-weather fan. The Reds cannot have fair-weather fans, for there is never any fair weather in their world. I'm not doing this to spite the Reds, I'm doing it out of respect for myself. I'll be back eventually, maybe soon, I don't know. But, like Joey Votto, there is no timetable for my return.
Godspeed, Red Reporters. I love you all. Alright, I love most of you.
