Special “Fair Weather Fans” E-dition


APRIL 5 FAIR WEATHER FANS    Real E-Mails from Real Subscribers  

image005image004We used to be able to get some really important people like presidents, vice presidents, and governors to throw out the first pitch at our Opening Day games. We’ve also used Lou Piniella (the last Reds Manager to win a World Series), local losers like Mark Mallory and Odd Todd, an over-the-hill recording artist like Nick Lachey, retired Reds broadcasters, police chiefs, and sheriffs, to Joe Torre, losing manager of Team USA in the 2013 World Baseball Classic, and three years ago we had to use some of our old Reds relief pitchers like Nasty Boys (Norm Charlton, Rob Dibble and Randy Myers). Two years ago we were all business when we chose David Joyce, president and CEO of GE Aviation, but last year the best we could do was Lawrenceburg, Indiana native Nick Goepper, who won the silver medal in slopestyle (whatever the hell that is) at the recently completed Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea). The next year year, we were back to baseball with Eric Davis.  —Señor Bob Castellini

Liz Rogers’ Mahogany’s has gone out of business, and the food at the new Horseshoe Casino will never be worth the long walk, since the Trolley Folly won’t take you anywhere near there.  —Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce

         image021Sometimes The Blower ridicules Sports Talk Show Hosts to show that obsession with sports when there are so many other important problems in the world is not acceptable in our society. This should be clear to anybody who didn’t receive a Real Apology from The Whistleblower like all those people mentioned in Sunday’s Annual “Mea Culpa” E-dition.
