I'm on a production, super busy, so I thought I'd throw up some old illustrations.
This painting is from 2003.
8 years ago this week, the Cubs swept the Brewers 4 games to nothin' up in Milwaukee.
With Mark Grudzielanek leading off, Damian Miller catching, Mark Bellhorn at third, Moises Alou in left, Corey Patterson in center, SS Alex Gonzales, 1st baseman Hee-Seop Choi, Troy O'Leary in RF, and lefty Shawn Estes on the hill on May 13th.
Sammy had a toenail infection or something.
But take a look at those ordinary names.
Do you remember even half of them?
Tell you what, NOBODY thought that 4 months from this drawing they'd be (if you were looking at me, I'd be holding my thumb about 1/8" inch away from my index finger) THIS close to the World Series.
