Well, the kids were pretty good last night.
Carlos Marmol, he’s one of the best relievers in baseball right now. How about striking out Prince Fielder with guys on 1st and 3rd?
And young Matty Murton came through with the big go-ahead homer.
I’ll only mention his error because if you were listening to Pat and Ron on WGN…you heard Ron Santo’s hilarious and amazing animal-moans of disaster.
The day before, I found the Cubs game on some station up here (I’m waay up in Wisconsin), so I figure that’s the station.
Now I’ve got the grill going, an icy cooler-Bud, the kids are playing, the wind is gone and the lake is a mirror.
I’ve been waiting all day for this perfect moment to tune in the game and…no Cubs.
It’s a Packer pre-season game.
In fact, there’s the Packer pre-season game on every freaking FM station except the one playing disco-polka.
I almost beat the dog.
Then, and I don’t know what is up with AM radio, but before the sun went down there were no stations to be heard.
After the sun went down I fournd the Score, ESPN, and finally the game on WGN.
So I got to sit in front of a camp fire by the cabin and listen to the game.
The only hitch was when D. Lee flipped into the stands and I almost hurled.
Otherwise, this game was as perfect as son Wyatt’s s’mores.
Come on, Lou, drive us into September.
