What a crap day for Chicago Sports.
First, the Bears.
We all knew what was gonna happen, and I have to say the spark the team played with overall was nice. Just... the end result sucked.
Aaron Rodgers owns the Central and the Bears and until the Bears can re-stock the D, it'll remain that way.
All that said, it's so nice to begin a new regime with John Fox, I hope he can at least lay some building blocks for the years to come.
Meanwhile in Philadelphia, the Cubs just didn't look so good against Aaron Harang and his band of.. nobody I ever heard of relievers, and lost their 2nd in a row 4-7 vs the Phils.
Monday is a welcome day off and then... well these games are just going to get more and more important as time goes on.
Starting with Tuesday's double header in Pittsburgh.
Game 1 Jon Lester vs Gerrit Cole who's 1-1 vs the Cubs this year.
Game 2 Jason Hammel vs J.A. Happ who only went 4.1 vs the Cubs earlier this year giving up 9 hits and 4 runs.
In the meantime... when you get home from work on Monday, I suggest you go out to your garden and pick your basil.
Do it now before you forget and it turns brown, and make some pesto for Tuesday's night game.
If I can do it so can you, spaz.
