Have you ever noticed how much crappier Winter is when the Bears suck?
How snow and cold give you waaay more pain after the Bears just got pasted?
That's why I'm usually angry all the time in winter.
On the other hand, I've seen victory at Soldier Field in weather that would kill a flock of penguins and been perfectly happy. One halftime we were in a looong, non-moving line for a beer when an employee came down the line explaining that there was no beer available because the tubes leading from the kegs to the cups had frozen solid.
That's pretty cold, but it was sort of nice out.
I didn't watch last night, but rather listened to the radio, and it doesn't sound like it's going to be a good winter at all. Cutler wasn't protected and threw 2 interceptions (did I just hear somebody say "Cutler Sucks!"), neither the offense or defense looked good... that's probably good for old man winter to start tossing grenades in couple weeks.
On to the Cubs!
It's funny how I forget that it's only Randy Wells' second year. It kinda feels like he's been around a long time, maybe because this season has taken about 4 years already. But it's not out of character for a young pitcher to be inconsistent in his second year. And he did good yesterday so maybe he'll finish up strong and we'll all have one (of about 10,000) less things to worry about.
In a couple hours we'll see Casey Coleman fresh off his first win.
And I cant' help but look ahead. I see it's the fearsome Pittsburgh Pirates coming to Wrigley next week!
