That was one crazy Keystone Coppin', Three Stoogin' performance by the Milwaukeee Brewers last night.
3 more errors.
Yeah, with all the runs the St. Louis Cardinals scored maybe it didn't really matter, but Cub Fans are pretty familiar with the art of the E and know that it usually leads to an L.
So it turns out that the Cardinals are going to the World Series to play the Texas Rangers.
Weren't they 10 games out about a month ago?
How in the hell?
We were at the Bears game last night, and in that United Club area at Soldier Field, there are about a million televisions.
One of them had baseball on.
The smallest screen of them all.
We were walking by it and Carlson goes, "Brewers up 4 to zero."
But I'd just gotten new glasses, so I could see the zero was actually a 6.
THE CARDS ARE UP 6-4 IN THE 3RD?
This I did not expect.
They proceeded to score 3 more that inning.
Obviously when you're at a Bears game, you don't hang out watching tv inside somewhere.
But at the half we crowded back around the tube to see some Brewer make a throw home and whoever was running for St. Louis knocked Brewer catcher Jon Lucroy's mitt out of his hand and scored.
And when we left it was the 9th and the Cards had it wrapped up at 12-6.
Meanwhile, the Bears... well lets just say the Minnesota Vikings are about as terrible a team as I've ever seen and the Bears couldn't have gotten them at a better time.
When Viking QB Donovan McNabb was running for his life, trying to get away from Julius Peppers, and Peppers just shoved him to the ground.
McNabb's ears had to smart because he didn't hear the crowd roar.
Instead, he heard an entire Soldier Field erupt in laughter.
Anyway, we may have seen the best Bear performance of 2011.
Lucky to have been there.
I go to get new glasses.
I'm trying on pair after pair.
Finally, I find these Oakley's which have this rubberized part that goes behind your ear, and the rubber kinda sticks so the glasses don't fall down my nose.
I choose them.
Now, when you're trying on glasses, you take your old glasses off and you look at your reflection without a working lens, right?
When I was inspecting them, I also didn't have glasses on because I'M TRYING THEM ON.
So I come home and go, "So, what do you think of my new glasses?"
My daughter starts laughing hysterically.
"What?" I ask.
"Dad, they have lightning bolts on the sides!" she says.
I pull them off to look and of course still can't see the bolts BECAUSE I DON'T HAVE MY GLASSES ON.
Anyway, I apparently have glasses that have lightning bolts on the side, and they cost a freaking fortune and are supposed to last me a year.
