The words are small in this drawing.
Here's basically what it says: "This one time my brother Grog called and said that Brett Farve got his hand stuck in a defensive lineman's facemask and ripped off his pinky.
And I fell for it.
So when he called to say that Sammy got caught with a corked bat I didn't believe it. But there he is on the front page of the Tribune next to a story about Martha Stewart facing criminal charges.
Cubs beat Tampa Bay 3-2, and they're still a game up on Houston, in first place.
It's June 4th.
But I suspect this bat thing will be, um, not a small distraction."
And it turned out it wasn't a small distraction, in fact it was 7 games.
I'm on an extended business trip, so I'm putting up some of my fav older posts while I'm gone. Please keep comments coming as I'm gonna depend on you for what's REALLY going on, and I'll do my best to answer.
