Former pro wrester Ric Flair throws out the first pitch before the start of the Friday game between the Reds and the Marlins at Marlins Park. He's have probably been more accurate if he were leaping off a turnbuckle. Might have been a good idea for the “Nature Boy” to focus on his target instead of the stars.

Woooooo!!! Reds slammed again, but Nature Boy’s on their side and maybe there’s better news coming

The Reds found  misery anew Friday night (well, maybe it was a repeat), and the details don’t matter much but you need to read this to its end because at least uber-wrestler Ric Flair was in Marlins Park to hang out with the fellas and there’s value in that.

Man, the “Nature Boy” just seems to buoy the spirits of everyone within his sphere. This is crazy stuff that some, or maybe nearly all, of us can never process, but just look at him loving on Joey Votto!

Seriously, while overall the report was bad in Miami even though Adam Duvall and Scott Schebler homered, there may be exciting news coming.

It’s easy to dream, right, and so how can the Reds not call up super prospect Nick Senzel?

He went nuts again Friday night.

Surely, you can just imagine the chatter that this spawned, even on a Friday night when phone thumbs run at a low ebb. Put yourself in the shoes of a wrestling fan and think hype, hype, hype!

Come on! This was what’s left of the Nature Boy!

The man has for decades been all about promotion, and the Reds needs some promoting after falling to 2-15 since the All-Star break.

Can you imagine how many people he’s met in his life? How many connections he must have?

This has happened before. Reds fans, for whatever reasons, love themselves some ‘Wooooooo!!’

A few were in south Florida Friday night.
