Unfortunately, the weekend would begin to take a turn for the worst as David Weathers gave up a grand slam, blowing the 3 - 0 Cincinnati lead and allowing the Cardinals to mount a comeback and win. I watched from the other side of the river while the sold out crowd at Great American Ballpark screamed in anger.
At least the fireworks were pretty spectacular...
Typically I feel it's pretty lame and Un-American to host fireworks on July 3rd like in Mason and Fairfield, however the Reds had an excuse as they have a fireworks show for nearly every Friday night home game.
It rained on the fourth, but I got to go to the Reds game with some good friends. The weekend would end in bad ice cream, sad people, returning to work, a lack of fireworks being sold in Ohio and getting rear ended.
