When you're the manager of a baseball team still playing ball in late October, you get to choose any kind of hat you want.
As soon as the game came on, I couldn't take my eyes off Joe Maddon's cool hat.
I also thought under some different circumstances, perhaps Lou Piniella could be wearing a hat with this exact design, only with a Cubs logo on it.
And after the Series was over, Lou could call Matt Sinatro and say, "Hey Matt, lets go out and hunt some squirrels."
(It goes without saying, of course, that Lou would do the driving since Matt's not so good with directions.)
Or if Lou doesn't hunt, then he could go chop some wood or something lumberjack-like.
Put on the red and black checked jacket and grab an axe and... ahh I'm so dreaming.
I turned on the Series last night, and since there was a rain delay I got to be absolutely astounded at the unbelievable awfulness of a television show that's, I guess, a real show starring that big guy who used to be on "Everybody Loves Raymond".
I switched over and caught some of the Blackhawks game, and they looked really good.
But this morning I saw they lost.
Can't stand Detroit.
Anyway, the game finally came on and Jamie Moyer was foolin' the big Tampa bats.
The ump called out B.J. Upton looking, and boy was he mad.
Later, we got to see what an athlete Upton is in center, when he went back and effortlessly that one fly that most guys woulda had to play off the wall.
Then, I woke up hours later and the tv was still on.
I found out everything in the Sports this morning.
Phillies are up 2 games to 1, which I never thought could be possible - the Phils look good.
Penn State beat Ohio State 13-6.
They're the best in the Midwest, which used to be a big deal.
This year, Michigan State is 7-2, Minnesota is 7-1, and Ball State is undefeated.
It'll be nice when this 2008 World Series is over, and we can put this season away.
Start thinking fresh about '09, and maybe Lou getting a cool combo cap.
