So that's what I've been missing all these games... yes, folks, today I actually ventured inside of the Friendly Confines, or as I like to say "yep, most people get kicked out of the bleachers - I get kicked in".
Saw a very well pitched game - Prior struck out 16 batters in 9 innings, gave up only 3 hits and one run - a home run that hit the foul pole. You'd think that'd be enough to win a game eh? Well, outside of a Sosa home run that sailed over my head as I was walking back with two beers and landed right in Dave's glove in the middle of Waveland (the ball, not the beers), the Cubs could muster nothing else offensively (insert your own joke here) in regulation. So we went into extra innings again, and ended up losing it in 12, 2-1.
So yeah, that sucked. Serves me right, I guess, for going in. It's so much better on the street with that big brick wall standing there so we don't have to see the season collapsing in front of us...
Giants, Astros tied for WC lead. Cubs one game behind. Sweep the Braves, and cheer for the Dodgers and Rockies. Especially the Rockies. Do not want to see Houston rewarded for Berkman the Faker's effort.
