My advice to myself has always been, "Man, don't even think about that again." And the surest way to do that is to not talk about it.
We'll mention it once for the record here, but after this?
What game, dude?
We had the Agency Seats yesterday, right down there near Tom Ricketts and everything. It's Memorial Day Weekend. It's the Cubs vs. the Cards. It's unbelievably gorgeous out. And in about a minute it was Cards 5 Cubs nothin', and Randy Wells was walking right towards us heading for the shower.
About the only good things that happened were James Russell looked really good and held the Cards scoreless for 4 innings, Marlon Byrd made a diving catch that took my breath away, Alfonso made a pretty good one too, and Tyler Colvin hit a homer batting (I have to think) for the first time ever against Cardinal Ace Chris Carpenter. And man, it was blowing IN.
So the Cards take the first of the 2010 Cubs/Cards games 7-1.
I got some awesome photos:
Today it's Carlos Silva vs. Adam Ottavino who has no stats because...he's never pitched in the Bigs.
This means one of two things: 1) the Cubs either rack the guy or 2) he'll throw a shut out.
I vote for number 1.
AND TONIGHT IS STANLEY CUP FINAL GAME NUMBER ONE!
Go Cubs. Go Hawks.
