Hey... I don't think 5 Cubbies is too many for a guy who Bleeds Cubbie Blue like me.
5 Cubbies, plus Cubbie Emeritus Mark DeRosa.
I got a good look at Jeff Stevens in action from my tits-out seat in Ho Ho Kam. Maybe I've mentioned, I went to the game yesterday. And I haven't compared pitching charts with Slezak yet, but I'm ready to say that we won't hate this kid this year. I saw Caridad too. He's the reason my seat was tits-out because he brought so much heat I had to take my shirt off. Oh, Lordy!
Getting tits-out seats in Spring Training is like getting a beachside suite during monsoon season. Or a tsunami.Still worth it.
It was a good thing to do once. I was with a big group of friends I haven't seen in years and within a 15-yard radius of almost all my favorite baseball players, Lou Piniella, Len, Bob, Pat, Ron, Tom Ricketts, Billy Williams, Larry Rothschild... um...Jeff Baker, Kevin Millar...
Absence makes the heart grow fonder, I guess. I'm sorry about all the negative shit I said about the Cubs this month. This team is playoff bound.
