The Cincinnati Reds Opening Day Parade is going on right now and is even being streamed online. If you've never attended the parade then you're missing out on one of Baseball's truly unique traditions. It is really magical.
Normally today would be a vacation day for me and I'd be attending the parade and the game, but it's getting more difficult to get tickets without some sort of season pass.
As for the Reds, hope springs eternal once again.
