Rather than comment on this afternoon's matchup, or yesterday's dustup, I wanted to tell you a few things about my dad.
Without going into great detail, through my entire life, and many personal tragedies and setbacks, he has always, without fail, stood beside me and supported me. He's 85 now and I'm lucky to still have him here. So today, wherever your dad is, if he's around, thank him for all he's done for you. I know he reads BCB, though he'll never post here, so -- Happy Father's Day, Dad.
And thanks for everything.
I'll be spending Father's Day at the ballpark with my son. Happy Father's Day to all of you, too.

Less-obscure stat note from yesterday: yesterday's game was the first time since September 9, 1965 -- Sandy Koufax' perfect game against the Cubs -- that the Cubs had both allowed two hits or less, and had two hits or less themselves, in a game.
Another WGN game means that whatever excitement (and let's hope it's limited to baseball today) we have is again available nationally; also check the Mediacenter.
