Yeah, what did you think I would post about?



I know Cubs fans are crying a river, but it’s felt like a long time and certainly, the beginning of the season didn’t really point to this outcome. But somewhere along the way, pies were had and everyone seemed to be having fun. Fun = good.

Speaking of fun, tonight’s game was essentially my only break in a really long week, so sorry for the delay in pictures and updates about Austin. I hope to get to that soon. I’m also going to try to squeeze in a trip to the parade in the Canyon of Heroes Friday, somewhere between my “extra” Java class and my two meetings with two different collaborative groups I’m in for final and mid-term projects.

I can’t believe I’m awake. See you in February, baseball.



Queen – We Are The Champions

Congrats, Becca. They couldn’t have done it without you. :)

Wait – Cubs fans are crying a river? I’m confused.

WOOHOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’ve been saving all of my exclamation points for the past 9 years you know.

I am almost as excited by the fact that I do not have to hear Joe Buck and Tim McCarver for another whole year. Yessssssssss!

 
Melanie says

Oh, I get it – at the *actual* long time since the Cubbies have won a World Series. Never mind.

It was the best of times, it was the — anyway, what makes you happy makes me happy that you’re happy.

I don’t get the Joe Buck hatred. I think he’s the only good baseball TV broadcaster out there. I can undertand people not liking Tim, but I had a crush on him 45 years ago and will always have a special place in my heart for him.

 
Becca says

Thanks, everyone!

Hee, Mel, you got it!

I’m not a fan at all of Joe Buck, to the point where I turn off the TV sound and just listen to the radio during WS games. I only heard him once this year, when I was in Austin. For one thing, he hates the Yankees and makes it pretty clear.

 
Irishcardinal says

He doesn’t do other FOX games anymore, just LCS and Series. Everyone seems to think he hates their team. I don’t think he actually likes baseball that much, so that’s the only thing I have against him.

 
Becca says

The second thing is that he can never shut his yap, but I digress. I’m sure other people feel he hates their teams, but with the Yankees, it’s pretty safe to assume that 9 out of 10 people who aren’t giant fans of your team hate your team.

 
KP says

I could probably take Joe Buck a bit more if he were on his own, but McCarver’s obvious bitterness towards and hatred of the Yankees is just too much for me. I am not asking him to be Michael Kay or John Sterling, but please just leave all your baggage in your car or somewhere and stop parading it around my game.
That being said, I am cool with it. I know lots of people hate the guys I love.
Hugs and kisses, The Former Mrs. Giambi

Eh, you Yankees fans are paranoid :) My Yankee-loving co-worker who grew up a few blocks from The Stadium said he thought Joe and Tim were really good [he brought it up, not me], but he’s been gone from NYC for 30 years or so.
Not to take away from your celebrating, did you go to the parade? Was it fun?

 
Becca says

I think the Twitter crowd mostly fell on our side of the fence. :D

But you both might enjoy this piece.

And for the gentlemen, this piece of ass.

Party on, Yankee fans.

 
KP says

Seriously, even my Red Sox loving friends hate those two, but, like I said, I am cool with it.
I watched the parade from my living room. I had school that night and would not have made it back in time. I could have just squeezed the life out of all of them, they were so freakin cute. Go Yanks!
