Took off for AZ to visit my dad, and I don't feel like doing anything.
I promised some photos from game #4, and those are coming.
Just one thing.
There were people around me at this game who were really loudly booing.
A guy who was a college catcher about 10 minutes ago was now starting in left in the NLCS vs a red hot Mets team.
Booing Kyle Schwarber.
I also heard that on sports radio alot of people called to voice their displeasure over a lack of trades, stuff about Joe Maddon...
All I can say is man, how do you find time for any fun?
Because that's pretty much all I did this summer.
I shall try to not speak of these people again.
Anyway, some pics:
My neighbor is a horse cop. I looked all over but couldn't find him.
Then... the first pitch:
Hammel got 2 out.
So close to just getting past the first inning, but then Duda.
The depressing scoreboard.
In comes Travis Wood.
No Cub reached until the 3rd.
Bottom 4, the most exciting inning.
Soler got a double.
Kris Bryant walked, Rizzo Singled and then Starlin Castro hit an absolute rocket that David Wright caught faster than I could follow.
The Cubs got no breaks at all, and a week prior this would have scored 2.
Instead, out numero uno.
I think that's Castro connecting above.
Kyle Schwarber knocked in Soler, but a groundout in the process.
Then Javier Baez fouled for the third out.
Rally caps the rest of the way.
Rough night in left for the kid.
He'll be fine.
And now, I'm in Arizona.
I'm gonna take some time off with maybe a post here and there about the WS or football or hockey or whatever.
In the meantime, here's a woodpecker:
