West Coast Roadtrips

April 19, 2006

I love baseball, but these west coast roadtrips require some pretty big sacrifices. The games don’t even start until ten pm. That’s bedtime! And because I’m so obsessed, I mean dedicated, I can’t go to sleep without knowing the final score. So I’ve taken to coming home and taking a nap so that I can make it through the game. We were very lucky Monday night when the game was over in 1 hr, 59 mins. I think that’s some sort of record. Last night was about three hours and that’s what we’re on track for tonight. Thankfully I have no huge, major proposals going on at work or we’d be in trouble because 2 + 2 has been coming up two 22 these last few sleep deprived days. But I would stay up to the wee hours of the morning if it means a Cubs win. The game is currently tied so that may be what I’m in for…

Update: As a note, this game was worth the sacrifice. The Cubs came from behind to win. But there was a scary play that took out two Cubs players. The Dodgers bunted and relieve Scott Eyre dove to field it. He tried to flip it from his glove to first baseman D Lee, but the toss put D Lee in the runners path and caused a collision. Eyre went out with a knee contusion and D Lee is out with what is currently being called a sprained wrist. The x-rays were inconclusive so he heads to Chicago to see the team doctors. Todd took over at first, again showing his flexibility on the field and his importance to this team. The Cubs were behind when they lost arguably their most important player, but they were able to rally for the win. Ronny Cedeno was able to put a throwing error out of his mind and made a great game ending catch. I was please to see the Cubs play good small ball and get out of some tight situations to come up with the “W”.

    Didn’t Ronny also knock in the winning run? He was really able to put that throwning error out of his mind and just keep on going…
