Pause

It’s with a bit of sadness that we announce we’re taking a break here at OMGreds. No, no, not an April Fools prank this time around, we’re being quite honest. With all the excitement around the start of spring training and Reds games at GABP seemingly right around the corner, it’s a little tough to announce this now, but it’s for the best. To state our reason simply, it’s to focus on family and simplify our daily lives. We’re certain you understand.

This is post is titled “Pause”, and we do mean that. We may be back. We may not. We may be back in a different form. Who knows. We don’t. At least right now we don’t. What we do know is we’re still pretty crazy for our Reds and you’ll see us around GABP all season long.

A few things of note:

Twitter: We’ll be keeping @OMGreds open and you’ll see us pop in on occasion.

We started this blog back in January, 2008 to chronicle our obsession with the Reds, our trips to the ballpark, poke fun at our favorite Reds of the ’80s and just raise a small ruckus for laughs and comradere. To make the small dent in the Reds blogosphere that we have was a heck of a surprise and a whole lot of fun. We’ve enjoyed every minute of it more than you’ll ever know.

Thank you to all the folks that we have met over the past few years. We’ll certainly be seeing you again.

We want to give a huge shout out to our skillets at Red Reporter, Redleg Nation, Chris Sabo’s Goggles, WHACKreds, Reds Country, Blog Red Machine, C. Trent Rosecrans, Big League Stew and any other blogs and websites that has linked to us, given us a shout or corrected our spelling.

Many, many thanks to our homies at the Reds. They are some of the nicest folks we have ever met and have been so great to us. Michael Anderson, Lisa Braun, Jamie Ramsey, Karen Forgus, Charley Frank, Jarrod Rollins… and at the Reds Hall of Fame & Museum, Rick Walls, Chris Eckes, Chelsea Theaker and Colin Ethier. Also, a huge shout to Brian Blinn with the Reds Summer Wiffle Classic. Thank you so much.

Again a huge THANK YOU to everyone from all of us.

– Dan, Dave, Paul, Rob and Ronson

    Hope the pause is a short one, guys.

    Best of luck! I’ll miss the posts, but I totally understand how much time it takes to run a website-I did one for years and had to quit when it took over my life.

    I hope to see you all back sometime in the future, whenever that may be!
