« The agony of watching MLB instant replay reviews. (gif) | Main | September 2003 was such a great Cubs month. (Mark Prior illustration) »

Sounds like a great trip Tim! Hope you're rewarded with at least 2 out of 3. I loved seeing the back of John Jay's shirt all night as raced to catch up to balls that he couldn't get. Reminds me of my '84 trip to STL in late Aug when we lost the Fri game 8-0 (but we weren't worried) Sat game was rained out, then we took the Sun DH 8-1 and 4-2 behind Eck & Trout. I always regret not driving right to Pit for the clincher. Really looking forward to more seasons like that. Wouldn't you love to see Alcantara, Baez, Castro, Rizzo, Soler, Russell, Bryant all in the same lineup? In Theo we trust - stay the course. Go Cubs.


Fabulous post. Poetry...

Thanks for the fabulous note.

Hi Donna!
It was fun to do with the no quotes thing. I live for notes like this one.

Great post! That was a great game to see live! Gee, there was a lot of buzz in that place by the time Soler hit his second.

That first pic looks like a miniature scale model thing.

I wonder if the Cardinal fans could almost hear the distant drums...boom, boom, boom, boom, doom.

Rich, this game was about as cool a game as I've been to in years.
Just fantastic!
