Last night, my sister called me from work to ask the score of the Cubs game. Ummmm … wellllll, oh wait! I got a text saying the game was postponed. She asked me if they were still running the rain delay programming, and I scrambled to see what channel they were on. I didn’t even know the channel! You see, like the other Ladies, I have been immersed in the Olympics. Seriously immersed in the Olympics. Having dreams about the Olympics. So, though I’m not watching you, I still got nuthin’ but love for ya, baseball. After the jump, a few reminders on why I continue to love America’s pastime.
Can someone explain the appeal of Grady Sizemore to me? I spent the whole weekend series (when I wasn’t watching Roy Halladay) trying to understand it. Jamey Carroll, on the other hand…
Yay! You’re a Cubs fan and not a White Sox fan. This makes me more happy than I can tell you. (I’m a Twins fan)
Oh yeah, Cubs fan born and raised. I went to my first Cubs game when I was 4, and got a Jody Davis jersey on that day.
Awesome. I guess technically I went to my first Twins game when my mom was pregnant with me during the 1987 World Series win.
The Cubs are my National League team. I can cheer for them without fear of complications unless the Twins and Cubs play each other in the World Series.
Anyway, that was a brutal couple days without Cubs baseball and a lot of frustration when NBC breaks from the good events (gymnastics) to the boring, crappy events (swimming).
Oh, boo to all the Cubs’ fans. I even married one, dammit. It’s a shame that the Cubs have hotties like Rich Harden…that means I have to endure watching a game and THEN listening to “Go Cubs Go” the rest of the night. ;)
btw – I luuuurve Fourth Place Medal!
Chitown: I hadn’t looked at the site since you updated, and it’s funny how you used an “I still love you, baseball!” headline, and I used “I heart baseball” headline.
Baseball might have been feeling a little neglected, so I’m glad we’re showin’ it the love, Metsy.
I wondered if that had been intentional, Metsy. Just reaffirming your positive feelings so that baseball *knows* that it is loved. But I like that it was just a cute coincidence.
