Graham Houston

In the midst of the Reds' first playoff run in 15 years, Graham left Cincinnati for Colorado -- a safe, 1,000-mile vantage point from which to watch the Reds get no-hit by Roy Halladay. Ten months later and still riding the hope of last year's team, Graham has found the life of a transplated Reds fan quite difficult. Games start at five now, not seven. Afternoon games start at the unheard-of 10 am. But schedule adjustments are made, sleeping schedules altered. Despite the perpetual frustrations and constantly faltering confidence, the Reds will always be Graham's team, no matter what time zone he's in.
