Whirlwind tour of Cincinnati

During my brief visit to Cincinnati last month, I stopped at the site where Crosley Field once stood, and took a picture for posterity. In the background you can see one of the warehouses that is visible in old photos of Crosley Field. Then I headed over to Great American Ballpark, and took a few quick shots as well. There is a very clear, sunlit panoramic view of the southwest side camera, but by the time I crossed the Ohio River to get a shot of the riverfront, it had turned cloudy, so those photos aren't so vivid. Too bad I didn't have time to stay for the Reds-Nationals game that evening...

Riverfront Stadium While I was at it, I digitally enhanced the old (2004) photos of "GABP," and updated the diagrams of Riverfront Stadium as well, with the usual attention to the profile, etc.

Nats' "streak" cut short

Speaking of the Nationals, they started off strong and stayed ahead of the Phillies last night, as John Lannan was having his best outing in several weeks. I had high hopes that the game I saw on Sunday might turn out to be the start of another big winning streak like in August. Then in the seventh inning, the visitors got three quick home runs. Drat. Final score: 5-3.

This (or that) year's
blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
