Well, the signs are everywhere.
For instance, did you know that Lou Piniella rhymes with “You win, fella.”
Or…“the WINdy city” – explain that.
But this…this is just plain freaky: “TAKE 07 SERIES LOU” can be found hidden in “Take Me Out To The Ballgame”.
Like “The DaVinci Code” or something.
That message has been secretly embedded in our seventh inning stretch, ever since Harry Caray first uh, sang it.
It makes you wonder if it isn’t actually Harry…communicating with us since it is basically his version.
The thing that’s so weird is I always sing it like Harry did, with that “Ah one, ah two, ah three” up front and the “Lets. Get. Some. Runs!” at the back.
So, I shoulda noticed this long ago.
Since I didn’t, here’s a big “thank you” to Jonathan Linton, who did.
He must be some kind of lyric-puzzle genius, figuring it out after hearing Eddie Vedder sing it at the Vic recently.
Okay, so the Cards win two, Brewers win one and lose one.
The Cubs take the first two against the Giants, and they’re still in first.
Take 07 series, Lou.
