Sadly, Dr. Johnny Fever had a previous engagement and will not be starting this game.

I never spell Cincinnati right the first time. It sounds like it has two Ts to me.

And then when I do eventually spell it right, I've said "Cincinnati" in my head enough times that the theme song from WKRP in Cincinnati starts playing in my head. "Baby, if you've ever wondered, wondered whatever became of me, I'm livin' on the air in Cincinnati, Cincinnati WKRP." Yes, I remembered that without looking up the lyrics.

So the Phillies apparently didn't have enough fun facing the Nationals and their barrage of superior pitching. Now they're heading to Cincinnati to face the Reds and Johnny Cueto. I'd enjoy it more if he were facing Dr. Johnny Fever. [crickets] ...ask your parents, kids.
