Of all the stuff Kyle Schwarber said in this funny little clip on Cubs.com, this quote was almost the funniest.
I mean... pretty sure you weren't thinking he'd say, "And I'm going to become the next Rod Carew - hit 'em where they ain't, man. Then run like the wind..."
But isn't that a great 30 seconds of video?
Seriously, it hasn't even been a year yet, and he's loose and laughing and ready to go.
You have to think that sense of humor and outlook he's got has as much to do with his incredible recovery as his determination and work ethic.
What a stud.
Anyway, can't wait to see him 4 Sundays from now in St. Louis stepping up to the plate for that first pitch of the Cubs season.
Remember we put a hundred bucks on the Cubs to win the Series last year, as a gift to my Dad?
So the ticket was in a frame in his house, and after the series my brother took it to his house in Hermosa Beach, and this last weekend rode his motorcycle to Vegas to collect.
Just $700, but that ticket stub is priceless and will go back in the frame.
Anyway, he texted me Sunday that he's riding back.
About an hour later he texts again: too windy, had to turn back.
He doesn't have a fat bike, and even if he did wind sucks if you're riding a bike (I guess - I've never done it).
So I think it's that same wind, coming from the West, that busted my fence yesterday.
This wind was an all-day affair, my wife sent me a video of the fence wobbling back and forth, and it let go sometime after that.
I get home, walk out back and there it is - chunks of fence blown around the yard and a busted post in the middle of all that and I thought good God, what if it blew like that with Schwarber up to bat?
That ball might come down on somebody out back of Murphy's.
Or hit the el.
I CAN'T WAIT FOR BASEBALL.
Okay gotta run.
