Couldn't believe it.
I started coming down with something about 9:30 yesterday.
"Man, I feel terrible."
I said that loud enough for people to hear down the hall.
"I might have to leave."
"About noon or so."
Ahhh, I can't fool anybody any more.
Everybody knows about me, and they probably know about you, too.
Got into Wrigley a tad late.
Met up with a couple Daves and one Mark just in time to see...
Oh you cannot believe how wonderful this first inning was.
Because then I got to see...
Before we knew it, it was 4 nothin'.
Here's what it looked like down the row.
MWA HA HAAAAAA!
Seriously, what an awesome game.
Jake Arrieta appears to be in just the kind of form you'd expect him to be in, which is nasty and dominant.
How does he look like this...
And then unleash something wicked this way comes?
There was a GREAT double play that happened right in front of us when Mike Leake bunted, but Rizzo was standing so freaking close that he took a couple steps, fielded the ball in front of Jake, threw to Bryant at third for out #1, then KB makes an incredible throw all the way across the diamond and poof, Leake was out, too.
It was one of those plays where you were dumbfounded by impossible excellence, then screamed your head off.
Here's a couple other shots...
Gorgeous day, gorgeous game.
Went to the GMan after.
Remember they used to have 3 pool tables in back?
There's another bar back there, and they don't ignore you if you have a Cubs hat on like they used to.
Maybe that changed years ago, don't really know.
Anywhoo, Jason Hammel's gonna try to put up another positive performance, trying to make the playoff roster.
It's the Cubs vs Cardinals starring in the Greatest Summer Ever.
