Sitting here today trying to get some work done while watching the Cubs on WGN, it’s been a while since my last blog so I figured I better write a little something. As most of you know after Spring Training my posts here are sporadic, leaving the day to day coverage of the team to the bloggers and media closer to the action. During spring training I devote pretty much all my time to the Cubs, so after that I need to get back to my regular work. However, I’m also currently tying up loose ends on the Boys of Spring documentary, which will premiere during Cubs Convention this January. Here in Mesa, Arizona or wherever I travel I keep a close eye on the Cubs either on my laptop with MLB-TV or on cable with WGN. So if you really want to know my opinion on something regarding the Cubs, feel free to email me here at [email protected]
Things haven’t quite fallen into place for the Cubs yet this season but it was good to see Zambrano pitch better in his last outing. Looking forward to the big match-up with the Sox this weekend, if the Cubs can get the win today against the Mets (they are leading 5-1 in the 7th) they can arrive home with a little momentum. Less than a month now until I arrive in Chicago and visit Wrigley Field for 2 games along with the Mesa Hohokam group, I can hardly wait! We have reached 100 degrees or better here in Mesa 5 of the past 7 days, but only 97 expected today. A little Midwest June weather sounds pretty good right about now.
Wow, Dempster has loaded the bases here in the 9th inning, he better not give this one away. Walked in a run, you gotta be kidding me, I better go now before I say something I might regret. BASE HIT it’s 5-3, Dempster yanked for Scott Eyre. A 5 run 9th inning, Mets win, I just threw my TV out the second story window (well I want to). So much for momentum… I would say “unbelievable” but it’s nothing we haven’t seen before, ah the life of a Cubs fan.
