Well, this is kinda mean spirited, but it's true.
While you may see a dropped ball, I see infamous plays in Cub history...
I'll let you guess who's gloves, legs, hands lets the ball drop.
(But they happened in 1969, 1984, 1998, and 2003.)
Okay, I apologize for being Captain Bringdown...
Now, a message from the Grave-Of-The-Last-Cub-Fan-Alive-To-See-The-Cubs-Win-The-World-Series:
"1908 began with the first ever ball drop in New York City. I didn't see it on tv because nobody had one yet, in fact the first baseball game on tv wasn't until May 17, 1939. But I did go to the World Series and see the Cubs win it all that year."
If you're like me, the 100th birthday celebration of the ball drop in NY coinciding with the 100th anniversary of the Cubs winning the World Series is a good sign.
Lastly, for the juicy current stuff. I read in the TRIB this morning that Brian McNamee's lawyers will SUE Roger Clemens. Quote from TRIB: "The lawyer, Richard D. Emery, said that Clemens should try to keep the segment off the air or face a lawsuit for damaging McNamee's livelihood."
The key part is that last bit - "damaging McNamee's livelihood".
I'm not a law guy so never look to me for legal certainty, but pretty sure that's how you can win that kind of lawsuit (as long as McNamee has proof he injected Clemens).
So if Clemens got sued, then it would be the first "real thing" to happen because of the Mitchell Report.
(You know, besides all the guys on the list saying they tried performance enhancing drugs "once" and never did it again.)
Not being a Rocket fan, I'd really like to see that.
But my guess is that the segment either won't run or it'll be edited so there's no mention of McNamee.
And it'll all just stay the way it currently is: gossip.
