I hardly know what to write today, so let's start here -- tonight is the 17th anniversary of the first night game at Wrigley Field, or at least the attempt at said game; as you no doubt know, it was rained out, and the first official night game was played the next night, the Cubs beating the Mets 6-4.
I don't think I've seen it rain as hard in Chicago in the 17 years since that night.

Doing this has been bad karma for the Cubs in recent weeks, but at this point -- let's throw caution to the winds.
The Cubs beat the living daylights out of Claussen in Cincinnati on July 18, hitting five home runs and winning 9-4.
Time to start doing that again.
There are rumors that Corey Patterson has been called up today, but I cannot confirm these. We shall see tonight.
Discuss amongst yourselves.
