Marty Brennaman – long-time radio announcer for the Reds – had his head shaved tonight because of a bet he made regarding the Reds’ recently-ended 10 game win streak.

I’ve been thinking of my grandpa a lot lately because of it. I guess, just imagining what he might have said about it. I think he’d get a kick out of it.

Seems a lot of my summer evening memories back in Indiana involved Marty on 700WLW on grandpa’s transistor radio playing somewhere in the background. I can still smell the evening air sometimes…playing whiffle ball in front of the shed.
