Okay, enough apathy; it’s time to work up some enthusiasm.

Who is going to Redsfest this weekend? Our buddies at OMGReds and Red Reporter are going; hopefully, we’ll bump into each other at some point.

I’ve never attended before, so I’m looking forward to being there on Friday and Saturday. Everyone tells me it’s a great time. Of course I have no interest in autographs, but it sounds like there are a lot of other interesting things happening this weekend. Like listening to Walt Jocketty wax poetic. And this:

Reds Hall of Famer and shortstop great Barry Larkin is the latest member of the 1990 World Series team to confirm that he will be at Redsfest.

Larkin, a 12-time All-Star, is scheduled to appear on Friday when members of the 1990 team are reunited on the main stage at the Duke Energy Center main stage at 6:30 p.m. ET….

Other members of the 1990 team expected to attend are manager Lou Piniella, Eric Davis, Todd Benzinger, Tom Browning, Hal Morris, Ron Oester and Chris Sabo.

I hope I get to meet Todd Benzinger!!!

On Saturday, I’m entered in the Reds Community Fund poker tournament. It starts at 5 pm, and I will probably be eliminated by 5:15, so that should be fun.

If you are going to be there, let me know. Post here or send me a tweet. It’d be great to put a face with some of your usernames. I will be there on Friday and Saturday, at various times, and I hope I’ll be joined by some other RN editors.

If nothing else, Redsfest seems like a great opportunity to get a little Reds buzz before we hibernate for the winter. That’s definitely a good thing.
