it's a travel day for me, so I thought I'd put this old travel post up about Cheech cutting the cheese...
Years ago - I'm going from Chicago to Los Angeles.
For some reason they put me in first class, and it's one of those mondo planes with those weird sleeping pods?
Ever seen those things?
There were 3 across, and in the middle one right next to me sits Cheech Marin.
How cool is that?
I'm in first with a celebrity!
Plane takes off and in minutes, he rolls over and he's fast asleep - I figure he musta come from New York or something, stopped over in Chicago.
I'm messing with the buttons on my seat when all the sudden, Cheech lets out a long, loud fart.
Aimed right at me (the painting is from my point of view).
When I was in 2nd grade, this girl Martha fell asleep in class and the teacher goes, "Tim, will you go back there and wake up Martha?"
So I go back there and she's got her head resting on her arms, but she's been seriously drooling, and her hair is in a giant puddle of spit.
Plus, she had warts on her hand (I had to square dance with her once).
Right then, I decided I could NEVER fall asleep in public.
Obviously, Cheech could care less, cuttin' the cheese like that in his sleep in first class.
I bet the Cubs could care less too, they fly so much.
And now they're probably already in San Diego, checking into a hotel and maybe heading to the park for a little bp.
If Carlos Zambrano can keep up this hot streak and the Cubs win, it'll be 8 wins in a row.
Soriano went deep yesterday and the Cubs got the 4 game sweep of the Rockies.
Tonight it's the Padres at 9.
