A Uniquely Cincinnati Holiday

The crack of the bat, the smell of the new leather glove, and the freshly painted baselines; yep, Opening Day is here, finally!

As the home of the first professional baseball team, Opening Day is one of those unique holidays in Cincinnati, as it takes on a special prominence here in the Queen City. The parade is going on now, and first pitch is shortly after 2:00. All the talk radio in the city is currenlty focused on the team's hopes of breaking nearly a decade of futility (seven straight years of losing seasons, nearly halfway to the Bengals!)
