Did you watch our Chicago Cubs v Pittsburgh Pirates game last night?
What kind of freak storm was that?
Mother Nature showing her wrath?
An act of God?
A sign of the End Times?
There was baseball-size hail falling from the sky, especially in the earlier innings, when Tyler Colvin, Aramis Ramirez, Geovany Soto, Alfonso Soriano, and Marlon Byrd all hit homers.
Really gratifying to see pushed and pulled Colvin launch that monster - how that guy has kept his head straight mystifies and confuses me.
Jim Hendry says they got rid of Kosuke Fukudome so Tyler can play out the rest of this lost season and see if he's gonna be the right fielder of the future.
Then Mike Quade sits him, saying Colvin's gonna have to earn those starts.
Just uh, not smart.
It was an unbelievable game last night - a laugher. I guess the Cubs have won big a couple times this year, but off the top of my head I couldn't tell you when.
21 hits, 11 runs, and a big fat W for Randy Wells.
Look at ESPN's always bubbly in a Bears Fan kinda way Sarah Spain interviewing everybody at Ryan Dempster's "Casino Night" to support the "Dempster Family Foundation".
Watch for a minute til she gets to Randy. He talks about jobs he had before making it to the bigs.
Look at his face and the kind of pride he's got about his upbringing.
I really root for that kid.
Plus, Tony Campana could pass for an 8th grader...
So uh, seriously, this weather really does freak me out.
After the Cubs victory, I was playing "Left for Dead" in the basement with my son.
I thought man, the sound effects are WAY better than I remember the last time we played this game.
That's because it wasn't sound effects - THERE WAS A FREAKIN' FREAK STORM RIGHT OVER MY FREAKING HOUSE AND IT'S FREAKY THUNDER WAS FREAKILY BOUNCING IN BETWEEN MY HOUSE AND THE NEIGHBORS.
The lightning, too - these aren't the kind of storms I remember from any time in my life.
And if you want to add to that fear, get the Weather Channel Max app for your phone.
It makes a thunder sound effect when there's a severe weather warning.
I hear the thunder in my pocket and like a zombie I walk straight to the nearest window and... freak out.
