Celebrating in Cincinnati/Canada!

Canadian Joey Votto of the Cincinnati Reds is now a baseball MVP while the Buffalo Bills won in Cincinnati Sunday, 49-31.

Home teams barely won out on Sunday in the NFL:
8 wins for the home teams and 6 for the road warriors. Only one team, Tampa Bay, scored 21 points on the 21st as they shut out San Francisco. Little stranger to see the unique number of 19 scored by three road teams:
  • Washington 19, Tennessee 16
  • Seattle 19, New Orleans 34
  • Detroit 19, Dallas 35
Joey Votto's numbers:
  • Second in the NL in batting average at .324
  • Third in homers (37) and RBIs (113) 
  • Led the NL in slugging percentage (.600) 
  • Led the major leagues in on-base percentage (.424)
Votto received 31 of 32 first-place MVP votes and 443 points in voting announced by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America yesterday. Yes, Christmas has come early for the Canadian kid...

Christmas Eve 2005 in Cincinnati was the setting for this weekend's "Thurman Thomas Show" Billieve Moment:
