I have a good buddy who's a dad with a young daughter.
They were watching tv when this commercial comes on and a woman says, "Shut the front door!"
And for the first time during her young life, Dad hears what I drew in the cartoon.
Jaws drop, panic sets in, where could she have heard such a thing?
In their house, the kind of language that flies around my house doesn't happen.
But when Dad told me the story, well, couldn't help but laugh.
Anyway, you know I'm super busy - I didn't even have the game on the radio.
Later somebody told me Reed Johnson dropped a perfect bunt with guys on 1st and 3rd and two outs to score Tony Campana, and the Cubs hold off the Cardinals to win 3-2!
I said, "SHUT THE FRONT DOOR!"
Jeff Samardzija walked a bunch of guys but only gave up the 2 runs.
That's pretty much all I need to hear, and I hope that somewhere Tony LaRussa was watching!
It's July 29th, the trade deadline is the 31st.
It's liable to be a whole different team in a couple days, so get ready.
