Thurs Funnies: What to do when the Cubs take a lead in extra innings of a night game
You know what I did last night?
Went to bed happy.
Slept like a baby, too.
Because in the top of the 12th, as soon as the Cubs took the lead over the Pittsburgh Pirates...the second Anthony Rizzo hit that absolutely gorgeous, stunning homer deep into the right field bleachers...I reached for my wallet and pulled out my shiny new Cubs Take A Lead In An Extra Inning Night Game Go To Bed Free Of Guilt Pass.
It's the AMAZING new product you can print for FREE!
All you have to do is click on the Pass (illustration above) and hit "print".
Best of all, IT'S GUARANTEED TO LET YOU GO TO BED HAPPY!
Why wait for new Cubs closer Jose Veras to walk a guy, hit a guy, and let the tying run score when you could already be snoring with a smile on your face?
Why stay up knowing that the possibility of revolting disaster and nightmare-inducing doom awaits when you could be dreaming of World Series Glory?
Try the new Cubs Take A Lead In An Extra Inning Night Game Go To Bed Free Of Guilt Pass, and... (sing this jingle) WHEN THE OTHER TEAM'S SCORING, YOU'LL BE SNORING.
What was impressive to me is that the Cubs won despite poor base running, several defensive miscues, Russell leaving due to injury, Arrieta having an off game and getting knocked out early, and Rondon giving up 2 runs in the 9th. If they can win a game like that...
I was there too. The crowd was absolutely electric. People were standing for every big and semi-big moment, from the first inning on. It felt incredibly strange and exhilarating to see the Cubs (the Chicago bleepin' Cubs!) score playoff insurance runs on the Cardinals. What a game. One to remember.
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.
