Baseball

Monday our office was closed for a baseball outing, we all went off to Coors Field to see the Rockies take on San Francisco. There was a familiar face on the mound, remember Shawn Estes? Well he was in full Cubs form, giving up 5 runs in the first inning. He ended up with a no decision as the Rockies came back to tie it in the 3rd. They went on to lose it in the late innings, however, 10-5 was the final. Bonds pinch hit and got (big surprise) intentionally walked.

That isn't the only baseball, there have been a lot of televised Cubs games this week too, Sunday on WGN, Wednesday on ESPN and Thursday on WGN again. Also the Sox were on ESPN Sunday night. I live close to home, so the last two days I went home for lunch and the Cubs were on, good deal! Especially today, seeing as I took a little later lunch, I was home for the 10 run 4th! That was a lot of fun to watch. One stretch the Cubs had 9 straight hits including homers by Alou and Lee... all with 2 outs!

Hope everyone is doing well, talk to you soon!
