Cardinals Series–Choking on Bird Feathers

Cubs got swept. Again. Back to back sweeps is a tough business. It’s tougher when that last two games were lost walk-off style courtesy of Albert Pujols. We’re skidding to a new low and it doesn’t show any sign of slowing any time on this road trip (next up: Joey Votto. Oh, and the rest of the Reds).

So, what’s a couple of poor, battered Cubs fans suffering along with a poor, battered Cubs team to do?

Get our kicks where we can get ’em.


This is one of three pictures NOT of Albert Pujols. We've missed Randy Wells, so he gets face time.

-Pena and Montanez breaking up Jaime Garcia’s perfect game. This is one thing that comforts us. Somehow, the Cubs always find a way to get a hit.

-Speaking of Pena, him hitting a 2-run bomb, particularly to tie a game, is always a nice pick-me-up.

-Bob Brenly crediting Darwin Barney’s sock choice for a single. Fashion really is influential.

-Quade telling Ken Rosenthal that he might need him to pitch in extras. It’s a shame he didn’t mention something about the bowtie he was rocking.

-Seeing the children play. At the end, Kosuke Fukudome was the only player on the field older than 30. The future has arrived.

-Bob Brenly saying that Big Z likes to play the villian against other team’s aces in their own ballpark. He played it pretty well today. It’s just a shame no one else tied anyone’s grandmother to the railroad tracks.

  1. I especially like Pena’s left handed bombs myself!
