With just a couple of weeks left in the season, and the Reds completely out of it, why do I care about Wily Mo Pena hitting a homer to put the Reds up four in the ninth? Why do I sit in my home and cheer for that? Why do I get excited about a super pitching performance from Aaron Harang? Why do I care about the Reds beating the Cubs at this point in the season.
Because I’m a Reds fan. Period. For better or for worse, I’m going to enjoy a Reds win.
Why do I care? I’m not sure, but I do care.
