Wasn't that better than watching the Reds clinch on an off day?
Seriously. The Reds could have clinched yesterday on their off day if the Pirates defeated the Cardinals. I am sure it would have been fine for Reds fans who have been waiting since 1995 for a trip to the post season (after falling ever so short in 1999.)
I guess when you've missed the playoffs for a decade and a half, you shouldn't get picky.
But I am guessing there isn't a Reds fan around who minds waiting an extra day to have their celebration NOT sparked by their team watching a TV but celebrating a walk off homer by Jay Bruce.
Folks... THAT is how you clinch a division!
