I'm sure you saw the sick angle of Javier Baez's neck when he ran into Jason Heyward on Friday.
Do you have any idea how many "hurl" pieces of art I've made over the years?
I just couldn't do another one after that one, sorry.
But damn, that collision literally made me run out the house as far away from the tv as possible.
Deep, deep breaths.
When I came back, Len said it was a bruise?
Do you have any idea how big the bullet was that we just dodged?
That could have been horrible.
Okay anyway no harm no hurl.
I had to pick up my son + other college students at the international terminal 5 at O'Hare last night.
Flight landing as I was driving and listening to the game.
Did you know that terminal 5 is a whole other building, away from the others?
It's the building with all the flags of different countries in front of it, the one I've passed a million times and always thought somebody just put up a buncha flags for no real reason except they look cool.
No Tim you idiot, that's the International Terminal.
So that plus me forgetting that when picking up people arriving from another country, one must tag on an extra hour and a half to allow the arriving party time to go through customs.
I stood in an airport lobby for EVER trying to listen to my At Bat radio, which dropped off every 3 minutes or so.
Which caused me to miss most of the 17 Cub hits and 11 Cub runs.
Luckily though, I love my son so... there were no injuries in the making of this post.
Really, last night was a big sigh of relief as everyone got a hit and there are no more hit-monkeys on anyone's bats, er.. backs.
I did hear the Bryant double and had to, you know.. look around, laugh, point to my phone and say, "Cubs" because I'd just yelled in an airport and that makes people nervous.
Kyle Hendricks wasn't so Hendricks-like, but I just crack up when I think about how spoiled I am with Cub Pitching Excellence.
5 hits, 4 runs, 6 innings.
It wasn't that long ago that those numbers would be the highlight of a week.
Anyway, not worrying about him.
One more Brewer game today and then it's the Home Opener.
With Championship Banner raising and real baseball to watch.
This one... won't be like any other home opener you or I have ever seen.
I hear they start at 6:15 with pre-game stuff Monday, and would expect this entire homestand to be loaded with extra-curricular, extra-cool Cubs stuff.
