Monday Meanders

The hopeless CUBS Won yesterday.  A shutout.  A "Clean Sheet".  Mr. Hammel is proving to be a valuable offseason acquisition.  He pitched a gem, yesterday.  He's allowed 17 hits in 34.2 innings over 5 games. His ERA is 1.44.  The greatest likelihood is that the CUBS won't keep him beyond the Trade Deadline in July.  They'll trade him away for prospects - especially if he keeps pitching at the level he has attained so for.  Which is too bad.  It's time to KEEP good pitching - we don't have enough in the Minors that's close to the Bigs.  If we want to contend next year - we gotta keep the good stuff close to hand.

This coming Sunday is the 2014 performance of Listen To Your Mother - Chicago.  If you're interested in attending the afternoon show at the Athenaeum Theater on the North Side of Chicago, just leave a comment and I'l make sure you're put in contact with the proper person.  Or you can call the Theater.

The Chicago Blackhawks won 4 straight from the St. Louis Blues and in doing so, won the 1st round of the playoffs for the Stanley Cup.  OMG!!!

I went to my first "Walneck's" motorcycle swap meet in Woodstock, IL.  It was cold.  It was windy.  And I had no idea there we so many people buying and selling motorcycle parts and pieces.

My head didn't clear until I drove home and got in the shower and let all that nice, hot, water take the chill out of me.  I felt wonderful.

We can pretend you didn't mention the Cubs' win, you know, to avoid jinxing it...
