Marty Assigned Security in Chi-Town

After Marty Brennamans’ episode on April 16 when the Reds were in Chicago, someone decided that it would be best for the long-time Reds broadcaster to be assigned a security detail during the current three game stand in the Windy City.  Mark Sheldon, the beat writer for the Reds said that Marty, so far, hasn’t encountered any problems.

At Navy Pier with his family, a ride worker told Brennaman’s daughter he had a bone to pick with “Thom Brennaman,” who is Marty’s son and broadcast partner.

“That would be me you’re talking about,” Marty told the gentleman. He said that they chatted pleasantly for 15 minutes, and all was good.

As with Adam Dunn’s dust-up with Blue Jay’s G.M. J.P. Riccardi, I support Marty when he (tells the truth) calls out the Cubs fans for being idiots.  Marty even says, in reference to throwing the ball onto the field after a home run, “It is a Chicago Cubs tradition that other people have copied throughout Major League Baseball and I’m fine with that.” Here are the original comments from the broadcast:
