Friday was about as good as it gets in the sports world. For just one day, April 8, everything came up Brandon:
- The Cubs won their first road game of the season, beating Milwaukee 7-4.
- The Cardinals' Ryan Franklin blew a ninth-inning lead and St. Louis fell to the Giants in 12 innings.
- The NL Central-leading Reds got trounced by the Diamondbacks 13-2.
- The White Sox handed the Rays their first win of the season, blowing a three-run lead in the ninth.
- As a Sox hater, I root for the Twins and Tigers--both teams won.
- Though I have to admit I'm a bit intrigued by Boston's incredibly slow start, it was still nice to see them beat the Yankees for their first win.
- And just for good measure, the Bulls clinched the #1 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
It doesn't get much better than that.
