Today is turning into Saturday School here on the Reds Tumblr. (See what I did there? I am so clever.)
Kings Junior High School student, Clynn Yeoh, entered into the Doodle 4 Google contest by submitting to Google a doodle of the “Google” art that they show up on their page. She was to portray her “Best Day Ever.” As her family immigrated here, this was her entry:
“The first time that I leave my home country to my dream country, the most colorful city I’ve ever seen, and the most wonderful moment in my life. I am in the United States and my new life starts here.”
Google chooses one winner from each state, and they compete against one another through online voting for a $30,000 scholarship and a $50,000 technology grant for their school. Voting runs from May 1 - May 10.

The intrepid Jamie Ramsey is on vacation, so we precious interns have been given the task of manning Better Off Red for the week (along with some others).
Today was my day to post, so if you want to read more of my ramblings, hop on over here to check it out!
Here’s an excerpt. IT HAS A CLIFFHANGER I AM A REAL WRITER.
When I was maybe five or six, my family was driving to Reds game, and my dad (being my dad) was doing his best to get my older sister and me psyched up for the game.
Granted, it doesn’t take much to get two kids under the age of ten excited to go to a baseball game, but that’s not the point.
He was asking questions about baseball trivia and doing his best Marty Brennaman impression and spouting off quotes from former Reds players. (“Okay girls, who said, “Bench me or trade me!”?”) The closer we got to the ballpark, the more delirious we got with excitement, and the more he egged us on.
Finally, when we were just a few blocks away from Riverfront Stadium, my dad started calling out the names of the players as if he were announcing the starting lineup.
“And at shortstop, number eleven, BAAAAARRRRRYYYYYYYY–”
Happy birthday, Homer Bailey!
Happy (one day late) birthday to Tom Browning and Barry Larkin!
