Hollywood can't save Cincy this time

Hollywood can't save Cincy this time


Remember 1990? It was the year that the Cincinnati Reds seemed to come out of nowhere to win the World Series -- and the big Hollywood movie was, sigh, "The Hunt for Red October," fueling a red sea of badly punned newspaper headlines and TV chatter.

Now it's two decades later, the Reds are in the playoffs for the first time in 15 years, and the new movie release getting a lot of hype is....the CIA thriller farce "Red"?


Don't worry -- the only curse in 1990 was the curse of Jose Canseco, whose steroid-addled A's were uncermoniously and deservedly swept by the underdog Reds. The Phillies will be fine, especially with the power of Roy Squared.

Enjoy the game and we'll see you on the other side.
