Musky fishing with the Cubs, sort of.
Just got back from a big Musky Trip waaay up in Wisconsin.
Got some bass, but skunked on the musky part, of course.
There's this thing about fishing for musky, they say "you only get a musky hit every ten thousand casts."
Man, that's alot of casting...
I got mad at this one lure - a giant old Rapala that cost a fortune.
I don't think I've EVER caught anything with it.
Started calling it "Alfonso Soriano" since it cost so much and couldn't catch anything.
(I know - he's been better, but still...)
After that, I started naming all my lures after Cubs.
Like the AC Plug, since it actually caught a musky before, became "Reed Johnson" because they both made "The Catch".
Had someone been recording, it might have sounded like this:
"Oh okay Mr. Musky... Won't bite on old Alfonso? We'll see what REED JOHNSON has to say about that!"
Reed would last about a dozen casts, then it would be, "Hmm, maybe Reed needs a little RELIEF. Lets put in a little call to the pen for Mr. Kerry Wood."
Then I got out a Suick, which is made of wood.
Duh, but anyway here's the gif:
There may have been a hand-crafted Wisconsin something in the little cooler I brought on board to help with the names...
And... back to the Cubs.
It's hard to concentrate on the games right now since the BIG THING is getting the new general manager, but man, it's always nice to beat the Reds.
I just noticed the Dodger's payroll today. It is just absurd. $300,000,000+!!
Here is where just some of there money is for 2015:
Carl Crawford $20MM
Brandon McCarthy $17MM
Bronson Arroyo $3.5MM
Darwin B $2.2MM
Dan Haren $10MM
Matt Kemp $18MM
Brian Wilson $10MM
Ryan Webb $2.2MM
Dee Gordon $2.5MM
Enjoyable read on David Ross.
Er, they won the first one. My bad. Carry on.
BOB: I doubt very much that Matt Szczur will be on the Cubs LDS roster.
I felt the same way, too, but...
I meant December.
