Misleading quote of the week

For the first time in a month, there will be a series at Sox Park that has postseason implications.

From here. If I weren't working I'd go, it's not often a ballgame is priced correctly. And Jack McKeon is hilarious: after spanking the Cubs yesterday, they interviewed him on TV. They mentioned that he and his wife had been married for 50 years, setting him up to send a shout-out to the wife. He said (roughly) "Well, yeah, it'll be 50 years come October, and I think after all that time with Mabel, you know, really, I think I deserve a medal." See what he did there?

Just saw a news report about the above quote. The had a ballplayer saying "yeah, it's a hassle, but you can't beat the weather here in Chicago." Instant cut to nighttime hurricane footage. Hilarious.

Finally, I watched the best baseball game I ever watched Saturday. Flipped on WGN late in the game: it was a beautiful day, the crowd was charged, they did a 'crowd' [boobie] cam and the announcers were sounding good. The Cubs pitcher stared, wound up and delivered a strike. Game over, Cubs win. 45 seconds, tops.
