My wife Kim, she often suggests what road we should be taking.
It's usually in the best interest of whatever trip that may be to...follow that suggestion.
This day, we were going to an outlet place to look at a red couch, and I was thinking about the Cubs when she suggested the above route.
The Cubs are only 2 1/2 games behind Milwaukee now.
I'm totally going to heed Lou Piniella's suggestion.
The one about not getting giddy over the Cubs in July, that there's still a long season, there's plenty of baseball left, all that.
It just struck me because when a member of the Cubs says anything about "a long season" or "plenty of baseball left", it's usually because the Cubs are oh, say 11 games out and we're talking about digging out of a hole.
When I walk down the hallway at work, I look at other people who, like me, are a little more than your basic "casual" fan, and there's this look we're all giving each other...
Nobody's dancing in the halls or yelling or anything.
But there's a meaning to this simple look that's doing all that.
I'm having so freaking much fun this year.
Anyway, Lou is a god.
So is Aramis.
Cubs beat the Diamondbacks yesterday 6-2.
Young Mike Fontenot was the sparkplug, Marquis pitched well, and even Jones was an important factor.
The Cubs are the hottest team in baseball, and I am not giddy.
