What Jim Harbaugh might look like in Superbowl.
I like Jim Harbaugh.
He's had his ups and downs.
You can't forget the Mike Ditka insani-tirade in that awful Bears loss to the Vikings with the Harbaugh audible, the interception, and the 20 to nothin' Bears lead in the 4th going poof.
I was with my dad at the only bar in Prescott Arizona with cable.
Unbelievably, we were the only Bears fans.
A whole bar-ful of Viking fans in Prescott Arizona?
So I was pretty irate myself when Harbaugh threw the interception.
At first the dressing down by Ditka felt good, but after awhile I thought well...maybe he's been waiting 10 years to blow his stack ever since he decided to get that perm in '82.
We had to skulk out when it was over.
You saw him in the 4th quarter against the Falcons, right?
Going crazy on the sidelines when it was ruled that Harry Douglas had caught the ball Harbaugh thought had hit the ground?
Wonder where he got that crazy act.
But..pure entertainment, and that kind of crazy seems to be working for the Niners.
That particular play is when I decided to do this painting.
One of the really great things about the Superbowl Sunday?
It'll be followed a week later by... Pitchers and Catchers Report Sunday.
The painting style is lifted from one of my fav painters, the great Francis Bacon.
I think it's probably hard to adjust to an ump's zone mid-game, as least for hitters. Pitchers can locate to an ump's zone, but hitters have minimal time to react.
But, whatever. Umps are going to miss calls. Let's beat up on the non-Lackey starters.
Watched a little of Mets-Dodgers.
Jason deGrom -- oh, my.
Cubs 3-4-5 hitters are 0-21 so far in the post-season.
Let's change that in a big effin' way tomorrow, boys.
Considering how players reacted it seemed pretty accurate high and wide (to righties), but not so accurate low and in. I thought the strike zone by the ump was awful, but it was consistent and the Cubs never adjusted.
Rizzo and Bryant need to have good at bats. They are really looking outclassed in these two games.
that game sounds fun as hell.
I was just wondering the same thing. I'd rather not see it at all. If it's inaccurate, it's a bad viewer experience. If it's accurate, it shows some shitty calling by the umpire.
TBS' K Zone seems to be more harsh than the others.
I wonder if MLB will ask the networks to stop using them. They just make the umps, and the game, look bad, and it only pisses off the fans.
"Strop vs. Cardinals." Seen the movie. Hated it.
Not all that disappointed -- I didn't think they would beat Lackey in Game 1. Need to get the bats going against the guys with less experience -- and they hit Wacha pretty good.
Rizzo has been slumping the last couple weeks of the season. Very disappointed it has continued during his penultimate moment of his career to date.
Really doesn't matter, but I was surprised to see Lester pulled and Strop pulled in. Should of left Lester in. oy.
Sweet merciful fuck, I hate the Cardinals.
Really doesn't matter, but I was surprised to see Lester out for the 8th. Down 1-0, at 100 pitches, seemed better to give a very fresh bullpen a little work.
Oh well...Throw away game, although in a 5 game series there is no luxury afforded to do that.
This game is not on Lester - he did his job
Had a lot of hope hanging on that deep Fowler fly in the sixth.
Really despise the Cards
