Ever do it on National TV?
The Cubs have. I am referring to beating your arch rival to win a big series on National TV. I was pretty confident that the Cubs would win the game on Sunday with my boy pitching, and I am glad that everyone out there got to watch our boys beat the Cards to take two out of three.
I hate the fact that I had to suffer through listening to Jon Miller and Joe “I am a turd” Morgan. Those two are so boring and confused. They talked for like 10 minutes about what the rule is on when a game is official. Jon Miller didn’t seem to have a clue what the rule is on this. My God, even Chip Carey knows that. What is wrong with this guy and how did he get this job? What made it even worse was they were talking about the official game topic for no apparent reason. It’s not like it was raining or something like that. Just call the game and try to not sound like an idiot. As much as I hate to say it, I was really wishing we could have been listening to the announcing from the visiting Cardinal team. I love Joe Buck. He does such a great job.
No Pain, No Gain
Kerry Wood was supposed to have a simulated game today, but left after only 8 pitches when he felt some pain. Most bloggers are probably going to jump all over this and mark is as the sign that the team is going down. I am not even going to bother with commenting on this other than telling you it happened. I am not worried at all. I played softball the other night and when I threw to 1st trying to turn two, I felt some pain in my arm. Did my arm fall off? No!! Neither will Kerry Wood’s. He’ll be fine, just let him rest.
The View From The Bleachers Welcomes:
I have recently realized that I have missed a few quality Cubs blogs on my list of links. So, to make up for that, I have added them to the side. Please check out End The Drought, The Northside Report, and Redline to Addison. All of them are excellent and I feel bad for overlooking them. If there are others that I am missing, please let me know.
Enough is Enough
I am sick and tired of hearing people who follow the Cubs gripe and complain every time Baker brings in Borowski. All I ever hear or read, most recently on The Northside Report, is that they pray to the gods that Borowski doesn’t blow the save. I hate to break the news to all of you, but in case you haven’t been keeping up with it, Borowski currently has a consecutive games saved streak going. It is the longest, not only for his career, but in Cubs history. So before you sit there and complain that his fastball has lost something and that he makes you nervous, sit back and relish in that fact that we do not have Mitch Williams closing for us. We have a guy that has gotten the job done when he needs to. That’s all we can ask. Until then, shut up with it already!!!!
