I think I read that the Cubs haven't won the Crosstown Cup in 7 years?
Is that right?
Did you even know there was an actual Crosstown Cup?
Well, there's a buncha Cubs posed next to it right there in this morning's Trib!
(Here's a screen grab from their photo section ):
Kind of an unfortunate crop on David DeJesus, who looks like he's doing an impersonation of Peter Seller's doing Toulouse Lautrec.
But anyway...Travis Wood.
We've talked a little about him and this impossibly cool season he's having so far, and what a plain old jock he is.
An all around athlete type.
Shutting down the Sox (and pretty much every other team he's faced) with his arm, pinch running him since Tony Campana isn't around, and yesterday hitting a grand slam!
He probably played football and basketball in high school.
He probably would whoop you at golf.
I had Emily's radio on in the office when he hit it out, and we've re-done our offices so that it's all modern - an "open space". And that means there are no doors on any offices. So, you know, if you sit on my floor and you were here yesterday afternoon, sorry if I disturbed you.
Everybody got in the act, really.
Cubs 8 Sox 3 Cubs SWEEP!
