What happens when a ardent Cincinnati Reds and Bengals fan finally meets face to face with a rabid Pittsburgh Pirates and Steelers fan? Will The world ever be the same again. Well Bench members we are going to find out the answers to those world altering questions on August 3rd ,2010 .Thats when The Fatboy will be meeting The Chief finally face to face ,at PNC Park in Pittsburgh for a Pirates/Reds game. Tom aka Chief and I have been planning this for awhile and let me say im like a kid at Christmas,I cant wait to meet my nemesis as well as great friend. As most of you know Tom and I have went at each other alot over the years all in fun. Now I get to meet ,what I consider one of the greatest persons I ve never met. Well on August 3rd that all will change. My wife and I will be taking the 4 and1/2 hour drive to Pittsburgh for the game and Tom will me making a much longer trip .
I will only be in Pittsburgh for the game and will spend the night and come home the next day. But if anyone has any suggestion of somewhere close to the Stadium we could eat dinner lmk. I also am looking for a moderately priced hotel to stay at . I looked online and most of what is close to Pnc Park is quite pricy. So any help would be appericated. If any Benchies who live in the area what to come down to say hi that would be great as well.
And to answer your question Tom ,hell no I wont go to the Steelers camp with you and yes I will be decked out in my RED AND WHITE.
So let the earth start shaking !
See you at the ball park!!!
Randy

Fatboycards, Im planning on taking my son to his first game at GABP or maybe Slugger Field depending on my fiance situation as we head into August. I'll give you shout out if Im headed to GABP. I wanting to make a trip into Bengals territory this fall as well but there is only one date I have circled. The same game I sold a Fender Strat for $150 bucks to go see several years back. And you might not want to meet me with my 43 and Towel waving though!

Trust me if I can put up with all the abuse from Chief and Pltcards for all these years ,one more wont hurt.
Im looking for a trip later season to GABP esp if the Reds are still in the hunt.

No promises but I might be able to get some free tickets. My dad stopped getting them when I couldnt ever get anyone to go with me. He's not a fan at all, but thats another story for another time. They are freebies, if he can get them I'll let you know. Nothing worse than have 4 great seats and no one to appreciate the game with. And I do mean great seats 3-4 rows back right behind the Reds dugout. Again no promises but Ive been pushing him to get back on the list.

you probably should find a restaurant that serves Crow, you might be eating some when the Chief gets done with you. LOL. Randy, I have been really hoping to get off work and surpriise you guys and drive down to meet you two, but there looks to be no way. That is our Fiscal year inventory and the guy I work with is off with shrulder surgery. I was really looking forward to helping Tom give you the double helping of Black and Gold but there is no way. You guys will have a ball. Make sure you keep us informed. You have to eat at Primantis, their food is great. Give Chris a PM his wife is from Pittsburgh and I am sure she can steer you to some great spots. Talk to you later buddy, drive careful in those tunnels, Pat
