The thrill of victory! The agony of defeat! Then the thrill of victory again! Cubs are up 2-1 in the series with two games to go, one of which is at home and the other of which Kerry is pitching! We're unstoppable!! I think I hear the devil putting on his ice skates!
Good thing: Mark Prior. He pitches like poetry. Bad thing: The pointless ESPN commentators in their expensive suits and loud ties. Thank god (and WGN) for Pat and Ron! Ron Santo may have no clue what he's talking about half the time, but he's fun, and Pat Hughes is an encyclopedia of baseball lore. And a little biased coverage never hurts. :)
In other news, it was bugging me all day where the "Man, that thing's huuuuuge!" quote comes from. My darling hubby managed to remember that it had something to do with a tiny Elvis guy, and I dug it up on-line. Tiny Elvis!! How could I forget Tiny Elvis?!
