Today is the final day of the holiday weekend. All of my various sources of entertainment on the internet are basically mailing it in today…much like we have this weekend here at 100 Year Itch.
Cubs lost. To the Phillies I think. We split the series. Click on the Major Media links or go somewhere else if you want a real recap…We had to – We missed the game…first one in a month.
Everyone needs to recharge everynow and then…We needed it now more than ever.
I started the day off yesterday shitting the bed in my Club Championship…three OBs on one hole kind of took me out of the game….a 12 will do that to you. The pain that the 12 caused me was remedied by a healing six pack of Coors Light on the back nine. Eight Coronas were follwed by Five Natty Ice Lites…I felt like I was back in college. Then I remembered that I didn’t go to college. This is when I sat down and woke up seven hours later….thirsty as ever.
So…we didn’t catch the loss yesterday. Not going to pretend we know what happened. We can report with some degree of confidence that since the All Star Break that the Cubs are 9-2-2 in series played. I dont think that ANY team in baseball would not take that kind of a stretch. We have the Astros coming to town today…we are going to try to avoid our first three game home slide of the year.
Becuase it is a holiday weekend, we are on holiday and will be enjoying the game with a recovery beer or two in our hand. Watching…no preview today. We will try to be here chatting the game later. But if we arent – you are welcome to hang out. Don’t worry about picking up after yourself….we will get the cleaning lady here later. Just turn off the lights when you leave if we are not here.
Enjoy your Labor Day. Thread is under this post for the game.
