Cubs Live Game Thread: Goodbye, Bagels. It's Been Nice

assorted_bagels.jpg
Stupid Cuibs. You spend the whole summer losing, and then when there's finallly something in it for me, you decide to start playing baseball.

As the result of the Mets appearing to b e worse than the Cubs (at least for one series), my Throwing Like a Girl podcast partner and Metsgrrl blogger, Caryn Rose, has won herself a Due's pizza.

As for me? I get a big fat pile of nothing.

Thanks a lot, stupid winning Cubs:

Manager Mike Quade improved to 8-3 since taking over for Lou Piniella, which is the best start since the ill-fated regime of Jim Essian in 1991.

And the new, improved
Carlos Zambrano improved to 4-0 with a 1.98 earned-run average in six starts since undergoing anger management counseling.

So you know how Carlos is supposed to be writing down his feelings in a journal when he gets angry? I am willing to pay HANDSOMELY for a copy of said anger-journal.

Just sayin'.

Today is Blackhawks Day (or something) at Wrigley. The only reason I care about this is because my future ex-husband, Duncan Keith, is singing the stretch, and I want to see if he's manage to scrare himself up any teeth yet.

What?

Well, I couldn't take him out anywhere the way he was!

Today Ryan Dempster is going for some kind of milestone for a Canadian pitcher or somethng--I really wans't paying atetntion and I can't find it again now. But just know that today is something important for Ryan Dempster.

Dempster is sitting at 99 career wins so my guess is the 100 game milestone is what they were talking about...not sure what that has to do with him being Canadian though :)

Housesitting for the would-be-in-laws means I get to watch the game. Bad news is that it's this game and they don't have Internets.

I hope you haven't sent the pizza yet. The Cubs are trying their best to avenge the loss of the bet.

Wonder how that went down in the dugout. Was he the slowest to say "not it" ?
