There's a lot going on at the ballpark tonight (Aug. 2). It's "Are You Ready For Some Football Night" which quite frankly, for the first time in I don't know how long, I'm not. We've got the beloved Florence Freedom still clinging to life in the race for the last playoff spot. We've got the Cincinnati Reds just a half game out. I've never been more ready for baseball to keep going.
As it is, however, it's still Football Night, and there's actually a whole lot of cool stuff going on. The Freedom will be dawning Tiger Stripe Jerseys during the game. These jerseys will then be auctioned off following the game, with the money going to benefit the American Red Cross. A good fundraiser for a very good cause. You can also be entered for a chance to win some Bengals tickets.
Also, we'll have the CIFL Champions, the Cincinnati Commandos in the house. I actually had a chance to go watch these guys play this year and it was a lot of fun. There are a lot of former UC Bearcats on the squad, and they have by far the best team in the league. Accompanying the Commandos will be their cheerleaders, the Commando Cuties. I also got to see them this year and it was definitely worth the price of admission.
I know none of us are ready for the baseball season to be over yet, but there's no point in not gearing up for football at the same time. So wear your football gear and I'll see ya at the ballpark.
