On August 17, we set out to ask Reds fans attending that night’s game against the Marlins why they were choosing to attend a Reds game at this point in the season. The Reds are not particularly good at playing baseball (though, as one fan pointed out to us, the team has performed better in the second half of the season). But on an overcast weekday against the Marlins, one that was without any special giveaway or fireworks display or a prominent opponent, is that really enough to draw people to a game? Our search for that answer in this special episode of the Nuxhall Way Podcast took us on a visionquest that included rejection, Ichiro, and the dining habits of Cate Blanchett.
