I always forget how much I hate today.
How much I hate Daylight Savings Time.
It sounds so cool - SPRING AHEAD!
Like we're all going to be so filled with energy and optimism!
Instead, it's the dumbest day of the year.
Everyone you know (except those in Arizona where Daylight Savings Time doesn't happen) will be walking around basically with jet lag, stupid from the loss of an hour's sleep.
Your boss will ask you to do something stupid today, I promise.
But you'll be too stupid to realize it.
You probably already spilled coffee, or spent 15 minutes trying to park.
I walked up to the elevator this morning and there was a crowd of people waiting to go up.
So I'm waiting with them.
Couple minutes goes by, not unusual.
Pull out the cell phone, check email..
What's my password again?
Okay, here's one - I have a meeting at 11.
And suddenly a woman behind me says, "Somebody should push the up button."
See what I mean?
The guy in front pushes the up button.
Nobody laughs, because we're all stupid.
I read somewhere that the rules of jet lag state your body needs one day to recover for each hour difference in whatever time zone you were in.
So it's Stupid Day.
Justin Ruggiano was pretty heads up yesterday.
He hit a homer, went 3 for 3 and drove in 3.
Javier Baez smacked a smokin' smart double.
Anthony Rizzo hit a genius triple.
All Ryan Sweeney got was a stupid hurt knee.
But that's it for stupid on the Cubs because they're in Arizona.
They didn't Spring Ahead!
Lets see how smart they can be against the Giants at 3.
Samardzija v. Cain.
ps: That stupid Cubs clock is actually in my office.
It broke years ago.
