The nucleus of OMGreds was forged at Great American Ball Park on September 5, 2007. For it was that day that Joey Votto unleashed his sorcery onto the world. We were witness to this genesis and over beers and our mutual admiration to a shirtless drunk heckler dressed as a pirate we formed a powerhouse of Reds discourse, illustration and irreverence. That day was a call to action. A call to arms. A call to fill in a gaping void in the Reds blogosphere. A call to our wives to come pick our drunk asses up from the game.

It was a reason to do it again. And again. And again.

OMGreds launched on January 8th, 2007 with a timeless and epic post.
