Is this the year the Cincinnati Reds
finally break through and give long-suffering local sports fans
something to get excited about? Uh, maybe.

Columnist is super offended by bad words
Reds pitcher Homer Bailey threw the second no-hitter of his
career last night and dropped an awesome F-bomb during a postgame TV interview. The comment came in response to a pretty dumb question about whether
batting in the sixth inning had something to do with him walking a batter in
the seventh, the only baserunner to reach and the only reason his no-no isn't considered a perfect game. Bailey said: "I
just fucking walked a guy. This game is pretty tough, you know?”Enquirer sports
columnist Paul Daugherty apparently dropped his prune juice at the sound of the
naughty word, and sports site Deadspin ripped Daugherty’s
responses on Twitter and his blog, where he criticized Bailey's lack of class, bemoaned a grown-ass man cursing and felt for the poor cable TV viewers who had to witness it. Deadspin: "Cincinnati Columnist Remarkably Upset That Homer Bailey Said 'Fucking'"Video
below (Note: Bailey is covered with shaving cream because a teammate pied him
earlier, after they dumped red Gatorade all over him):
The Enquirer's blog link wasn't working for a while on Wednesday, but Sports Editor Angel Rodriguez said it was just a technical issue and that their people have been having fun with the situation, as evidenced by this "Homer F@!cking Bailey" image they posted on Facebook:Bailey was actually the most recent pitcher in baseball to throw a no-hitter, performing the feat against Pittsburgh last September. Bailey is the first pitcher since Nolan Ryan in 1974-75 to throw
consecutive no-hitters out of everyone in baseball.

During a baseball season, 40 games isn’t
enough to tell the whole story, but it should be enough to get an idea
where it’s going. Except when it isn’t — like with this season’s
installment of the Cincinnati Reds.

Cincinnati sports fans are justifiably skeptical of their teams’ yearly promises of greatness. Our recent sports history has left many with a “believe it when we see it” philosophy when it comes to local teams’ on-field success. But when Jay Bruce’s rocket-laser walk-off home run against the Astros on Sept. 28, 2010, caromed off the batter’s-eye pavilion in center field, Great American Ball Park exploded into the greatest celebration in its short history.
