Louisville Weatherman, So Ashamed by Reds, Decided to Go Faceless for Report

Gabe ZaldivarPop Culture Lead WriterOctober 2, 2013

Johnny Cueto certainly could have used face-hiding technology Tuesday night. 

Joe Kinsey of Busted Coverage happened upon some hilarious images of Louisville weatherman Jude Redfield (WDRB Fox 41), who decided to hide his face in shame for the duration of his report Tuesday. 

In fact, that's pretty much what he tweeted to his fans

Thanks to WDRB's morning news anchor, Candyce Clifft, we can pull the curtain back just a bit and show you how it was all done. 

Chin up, Reds fans. 

The team played well down the stretch in one of the tightest races in baseball. You have to like the chances of any team with Joey Votto to return to contention once again next year. 

As many of you know, the Reds lost the NL Wild Card Game on Tuesday night. Despite some great effort from guys like Todd Frazier and Ryan Ludwick, the team that fought the good fight with the top of the NL Central throughout the year eventually fell to the Pirates 6-2. 

We would like to give a virtual hug to the game's starting pitcher Johnny Cueto, who suffered through 3.1 innings wherein he gave up seven hits and two home runs. 

One of them, a second-inning blast from Russell Martin, came right after Cueto dropped the ball as the Pittsburgh crowd taunted him by chanting his name repeatedly:

If anyone needs to hide his face, it's Cueto. 

The MLB postseason is back. Some fans, like the Pirates' playoff-starved ones, will pop bottles and bask in the glow of their team's victory. 

Others will run and hide for the duration of the winter. 

Redfield may want to share that green mask, because many of us will need it shortly.
