Cubs win Division

Okay, I can breathe a little easier now... the Cubs FINALLY clinched the division last night (thanks to the Padres beating the Brewers). I don't really believe that they will go far in the playoffs, but then I thought the same thing about the Cardinals last year. It should be an interesting October!

What's DP up to?

I was busy most of August getting ready for our Alaskan cruise and advising at school, so I only caught a tiny bit of Dan Patrick's last shows on ESPN radio. Just this week, I discovered his web site and I've been loving the little video clips of what he's doing since he left ESPN and before he starts his next great adventure. I'm dying to know what he's going to be doing and crossing my fingers that (A) Keith Olbermann will be a part of it and (B) it will be available as a podcast. I've been doing regular Google searches and haven't come up with an definitive answer. Even the possible starting date seems to be nebulous at best. Oh well, at least we know it's later this month.


UPDATE: The actual date (if you believe the counter on this website) is October 1st. I think...

I am now officially banned from watching or listening to the Cubs games live. Okay, I banned myself, but here's why... I turned on yesterday's game in the bottom of the 8th. The Cubs were winning 4-3. You guessed it... top of the 9th, three run homer plus more and the Cubs lose to the Dodgers 7-4. I switched on my iPod to my favorite Disney podcast after the 3-run homer, but it was too late. The damage was done. So, after being in 1st place in the division for a nice bit of time, the Cubs are tied with the Brewers. The next few weeks are going to be nail biters!
