With last night's excitement carrying forward into today, I figured why not get the Game Thread up early? I'll be at the game tonight (right field bleachers, come say hi), so I don't know that I'll get to do too much Game Threading.

Hopefully tonight's game is as exciting as last night's. I'd settle for 50%.

You must maintain your streak.
Please don't feed the psychos.

How awesome would two in a row be?! I am STILL thinking back on how great that post-game celebration was last night! I couldn't remember the last win where the Cubs could celebrate like that, and I am SOOO tired of watching celebrations from the opposite field.

If the Cubs do win this game, Ace, we are all chipping in to make sure you are at every game. I hope you do everything exactly the same as you did for the last game (who says baseball fans are superstitious?).

It's going to be pretty much the same, though the company might change. Going to the same bar before, sitting in the same section, painting my chest the same shade of pink.

At least you won't have to worry about sunscreen tonight.

Well, if anyone cares, the Tennessee Smokies are currently putting on their best Chicago Cubs impression. Getting spanked, thank to ugly defense and questionable starting.

True, but I'm going tomorrow afternoon, too! I seriously thought, this morning before I left, that, "oh crap! Spencer won't be there tomorrow to bail me out! I better grab some sunscreen."

Any more of our cast-offs sitting on your damn bench tonight?

Brett, I am predicting that you will be tossing a David Freese HR ball back on the field tonight. Think of me as you do...

Brett, I am predicting that you will be tossing a meaningless David Freese HR ball back on the field tonight to give the Cards their only run in the Cubs' 18-1 blowout. Think of me as you do...

Fixed that for you.

Ha! You, Cardfan, crack me up. I'd probably even buy you one of those beers...

Hoping I actually get our announcers tonight, can't take much more Hrabosky. Though it was nice to hear their anticlimactic call to the finish.
