I read some Cubs stuff on the internet, and a fellow blogger who writes under the moniker of Death wrote an interesting opening paragraph:
The leadoff triple by Juan Pierre is far and away the best hit I've never seen. I mean, I don't know what actually happened in the game, but Pierre was like a rabbit on amphetamines in my imagination, burning a path of destruction across the bases as he slammed into third for an easy triple. Yep, that Pierre sure did hustle.Having Pierre at the top of the lineup will certainly help over the former fiasco of Korey Patterson as a leadoff hitter. The Cubbies may actually try to manufacture runs this year, instead of trying to knock the ball out of Wrigley, or wherever they are playing.
Goat Riders of the Apocalypse
Things are well in Cub Nation. Now they need to get ready to beat the Reds again on Wednesday, then get back to Wrigley to face the Cardinals.
Change of subject: our speaker last night in the Perspectives course was from African Inland Mission, and was a blessing to us. He stayed in our home for two nights, and then spent last night in the Missionary Residence guest rooms on campus.
I have a meeting this evening at church, but will swing by my Mom's house to see Harley and Lola Mitchell, who will be visiting in the area. That will be very nice indeed! :) :)
Best of God's grace to you and yours!
