    Some of you younger members might need to google Johnny bench to know who he is, but my wife and I had lunch with him (and about 200 others) today!! He was really great and spoke to us for about an hour! :lol:

    It would be really cool to meet him. As a kid I spent a lot of time in front of the television watching the Big Red Machine chew through their opponents. The roster of unbelievable athletes that were on that team is amazing to think back on.
