DB

What is the deal with the "Grand Salami"? Did a player actually call it that? (Saw the old DeRo painting...niiiiiice!) Last night killed me. Again. Our offense was completely MIA for 7 innings. Too little, too late.

Rob

Jeeeez! I laughed out loud at that story. The illustration of calling for help is classic...I don't know, something about the stance, the reflection of the word balloon...tremendous.

Reminds me of when I got stuck in my wet-suit and almost called for help from some other surfers. THEY saw me, but chose to show their concern by edging away from me...so as not to be infected by whatever it is that makes a person a kook, I suppose.

Great theory on good teams getting better by hitting a rough spot. I'll go along with that.

Don

"You all know me. Know how I earn a livin'. I'll catch this bird for you, but it ain't gonna be easy. Bad fish. Not like going down to the pond and chasing bluegills and tommycocks. This shark, swallow you whole. No shakin', no tenderizin', down you go."

Bud

Got close?

Couldn't land it?

Years of frustration?

Episodes of foul language?

Maniacal determination to win?

Proclaims "Dammit...this is the year!"

Now I ask you: "Is this not the prototypical Cubs fan?!!!"

Tim

DB - no idea on the salami thing. Probably Yogi Berra...
Rob - I had to eat glass and punch a black bear afterwards to get my manhood back.
Don - one of my favorite scenes of all time. I read the book about the sinking of the Indianapolis - sooo terrifying.
Bud, now look what you did. I hadn't thought about the musky quest like that at all. Now, if I don't catch him, it'll be some awful metaphor in the back of my mind for this season. Okay, I'm getting back on the lake RIGHT NOW.
