Seriously, this thing drives me nuts.
People walking around in a complete daze, stepping out in front of busses, blocking doorways, stepping on pets...
The other day I'm having lunch with a guy who gets a text, and it's like he stepped into another room.
Big goofy smile, just...lost in the smart phone.
Which is when I thought it should be called stupid Fone Face.
Then yesterday Sutter sends me a text.
It's got a link to a story written by Rany Jazayerli over at Grantland.
It's kinda long, but oh man is it ever a great article.
You read it and suddenly you're the smartest guy in the room just because you're a fan of the Chicago Cubs.
You feel justified in all the crap you've been taking since Theo came to town.
You feel elation.
You feel hope.
And you have stupid Fone Face.
I don't have all the links but I'm sure you've been noticing all the good press lately.
How about young Kyle Hendricks?
Did you see how bad he made Ryan Braun look?
With the buncha low stuff to get two strikes, then throwing one up in his eyes that he couldn't not swing at?
And the other one where he stayed low and made Braun look Alfonso-like.
I was rolling on the ground.
And Alcantara scoring one and driving one in.
Rizzo getting back on the homer wagon.
Pedro Strop inducing the double play, and then Rondon finishing off Braun/Ramirez/Gennett like it was nothin'.
What an enjoyable game.
Gots to run, and I have to say I noticed after I was done that I have an unfair balance of women to men with the stupid Fone Face. Totally unintentional, I just started drawing. I promise there are just as many guys with stupid Fone Face as women.
