If we're lucky, we'll get about 5 minutes of Cubs Fabulousness this season, and that was about 6 seconds of it.
Even the most jaded and sarcastic of us had to find some serious joy in Darwin Barney's fantastic walk-off homer yesterday.
Roll around in it.
Feel it with your fingers.
Get it in your hair.
I wasn't there and I saw none of the game, but I heard it was blowing straight in.
And Darwin Barney hits one out?
With two out in a tie game in the bottom of the 9th and a sweep on the line?
NO FREAKING WAY MAN!
Cubs 8 Padres 6.
Okay it was against the most-injured team in baseball, and they're probably not that talented with nobody injured, but still.
Ryan Dempster got a hit and an RBI, but goes only 13 outs and gives up all 6 of the Padres' runs.
And remains winless.
Steve Clevenger returns from the DL and please oh PLEASE Baseball Gods let him go injury-free the rest of the season.
He acted as if he hadn't been missing for weeks, going 2 for 4 with a double, 2 RBIs and scoring once.
Soriano didn't get a hit but he walked twice.
Joe Mather does nothing and they have him in the 3-hole, but man what can you do with this team?
Well, I'll tell you what you can do:
Crack a frosty cold one and say cheers Cubs.
They deserve it.
And you over there...Darwin Barney: 2 for 3 with 3 RBIs and 3 runs scored?
That's a mighty big bat, buddy.
Thanks for the happy blip.
