You know, it hasn't been a particularly awful winter so far. We had the nice big snow, it was super cold for awhile. We just thawed and maybe that little circle will repeat itself a couple more times.
But still, winter is generally sucky. The sky, it's the color of bad breath. And that... stuff that's next to the gutters and my garage that used to be snow but got mixed with ice melt and rotten leaves and little black bits of my tires - that stuff never ever ceases to depress me.
So yesterday I'm looking at Cubs.com, and there are some words there I hadn't seen before: "2010 Downloadable Schedule".
Probably it's been there for a month, but Praise Be To The Baseball Gods Above! I believe I'm smiling out loud for the first time in a month.
Surely you have a calendar program on your computer somewhere, right?
Do yourself a favor and get your schedule RIGHT NOW!
It's alot like seeing this new bag of Oreos, which my wife apparently hid in the bread drawer and Wyatt just found.
Yeah yeah the milk-dipping thing and all that, but seriously, opening your calendar and seeing all those games? They're all fresh and crisp and real and haven't been raided by anybody yet?
Makes me say, "Oh yeahhhh" in my deepest voice.
Of course, we've still got a ways to go til we can actually sample the product, but hell.
Baseball's comin', man!
Okay, what else? The Cubs are maybe after 37 year old middle reliever/not-so-good starter Chan Ho Park who looked good and bad for the Phils in the playoffs last year. And I would imagine that the Cubs seeming to drop out of the Ben Sheets competition would be due to you and me not being able to stomach watching a guy doing that towel drill for big dollars ever again.
