The "Cincinnati Bees"


Bee swarms delay Giants-Reds game

Quote:
It's the second time the Giants have been involved in a bee delay in Cincinnati. A swarm went into the Giants' dugout at Riverfront Stadium on April 17, 1976, forcing a 35-minute delay. The Reds won the game 11-0
The Reds are leading the Giants 7-1 right now, so they have outscored the Giants 18-1 in "bee assisted games".

Bee happy.

It takes a bit of the sting out of what's been a bad early season for the Reds.

I don't know if I'd call their season "bad" per se, based on what most pundits were predicting for them but as a fan I'd call it bad. If that makes sense.

Wasn't there a similar incident not too long ago with the A's? ...does anyone recall?
(This could go a five seasons back...never sure about my memory!)

If the As had a player named Dees, stung by bees and put into a seizure, the headline could be:

As: Bees Seize Dees with Ease

They need to have a Bee Bobblehead Night.

The bee would be dressed in a Reds uniform carrying a little bat.
