Jonathan Lucroy, at least from the point of view of Len and Jim, is a nice guy who normally plays catcher but volunteers to play first when the team needs him.
If you were watching last night in the 4th, Anthony Rizzo hit an absolutely on fire one-hopper that Lucroy wasn't prepared to field like a normal 1st basemen might.
Instead, he "blocked" it with his chest.
Like a catcher.
In the box score, it was just a ground out for Rizzo.
But I'm tellin' you, that grounder hit Lucroy so hard...
Sometimes when I'm watching our favorite baseball team, I take notes.
Because I have a blog.
And the piece of paper I have from last night says, "That ball hit Lucroy so hard it busted his heart's nose."
Which of course I had to draw.
Anyway, the score didn't turn out so good for the Cubs, who lost to the Brewers 1-6.
And I bet Lucroy has a humendous bruise in the middle of his chest.
I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to do anything for the Bears amazing, incredible, happy go lucky or not victory over the Vikings.
But I can tell you I watched it over at a buddy's house and we didn't say it exactly at the same time, but when Cutler completed the winning TD pass, it sounded like this (I'M ALL CAPS, brad is lower case):
I GOT i GOOSEBUMPS got goosebumps!"
You can imagine those words were pretty loud.
