The Cubs and the new iPhone 4s
(Please click on the thumbnail above.)
You guys have seen this commercial, right?
Shows people walking around asking their iPhone 4s questions like, "What's my day like?" and it answers both verbally and with a page of information.
I immediately took advantage of this commercial with my old, normal iPhone.
You can, too.
Even if you don't have the new iPhone, go into any public place and talk to your phone.
Trust me, you're cool.
In a crowded elevator, pull out your phone and just say, "What time is my meeting?"
Or even better, be specific yet vague with, "What time is my meeting with the President?"
Couple weeks ago, my wife says, "Our phone contract is up, wanna get a new iPhone?"
Seriously, it's amazing.
Right now, I'm in New York.
The hotel I'm at charges $9 for a bottle of water, I don't even want to find out how much breakfast is.
So I got out my new iPhone and asked Siri, "Is there a McDonald's near me?"
Siri says, "I found 17 restaurants matching McDonald's. 14 of them are fairly close to you."
Like, a block away.
I swear, it's the coolest thing.
Then I'm back in my room and this idea (of the gif) pops into my head.
I pull out my phone and ask Siri: "Will the Cubs ever win the World Series?"
She (it's a woman's voice) responds, "Timothy, I don't understand "When will the Cubs win the World Series."
Which is correct, of course.
I don't understand it either.
14 in attendance. What's the record for attendance in the fall? I guess I should ask what the record attendance listed is in one of your recaps.
I was there too, with my grown son. This is my miracle year-- I rose to the top of the season ticket list after eight years, completely unexpectedly, and my wonderful wife agreed to put the ticket fee on the emergency credit card. The whole point of course was that the Cubs were going to be good this year, and then for a while, so to get season tickets with the guaranteed shot at the postseason was incredible timing. We got to the remote lot at 4:10 after stopping at Nhu Lan for our usual banh mi sandwiches, only to find the lot full, way earlier than normal.
Wrigley was electric tonite
Not many card fans
Video board was great, they played "there goes my hero" by foos over ryno highlights before he came out. Spectacular
Good times hopefully they win tomorrow but think Lester will beat poopy pants on Wednesday.
Happy 4th anniversary of Theo's signing
Go Cubs !
Yeah. "Goodbye!" is a lame HR call.
I miss Len and JD -- although, driving home from a friend's, WBBM played all 6 HR calls in a row -- and Len got to call the Bryant/Rizzo back-to-back. Very fun.
Lackey has been a beast against us. His stats on 3 days rest, however, not as nice. There is plenty of hope.
And, no dreadlocks grown yet.
Captain Obvious Strikes Again!!!
In the wild card game he mentioned that aram started with the Pirates, then played for the Brewers, and now he's back with the Pirates. Uhhhh, missed a step there, guy.
i like ron darling the person, the interview, and the studio desk guy...but him calling a game can lead to some really stupid stuff coming out of his mouth.
If you think these announcers are bad ,the ones doing the Mets vs Dodgers (Ron Darling ,Cal Ripken and someone else)
are worse they did the wildcard game I never knew Joe Jackson and Derrick Fowler played for the Cubs this year you
would think there would be research by them.
Soler's OPS in the NLDS? 3.750.
...and HRs are good.
Theo: "So, let's see...should we put Soler on the post-season roster? Ummmm, yeah, I mean what the hell."
Wow -- if he can bring that focus and plate discipline next year -- yowza! Seems like Manny has really helped him.
1st team hit hit 6HR in a game in the postseason. woo.
