    A friend who is a life long Cub’s fan just sent me this link. Hilarious and encouraging all in one.

    Huddy must be juicin’ to have hit that one out…Don’t worry though, the Commish will just look the other way like he is with A Rod.

    Huddy’s homer was unbelievable. Finally, the offense has arrived to save the season.

    I’m off to hear Dale Murphy speak tonight. And hoping to nail down the interview while there as well. Wish me luck.

    Ditto Tcc! Awesome win! Big Mac looks great. We need to hire his dad. Congrats Huddy. Feels good to be a Braves fan tonight. What if we swept the Cards! I write short choppy sentences when excited.

    Got to speak to Dale for a few minutes tonight. He could not have been nicer. You hear about what a nice guy he is, and it was jarringly true. There’s been a few unreturned phone calls the past week as I’ve tried to nail down the interview and he was extremely apologetic about that and told me to call him at a specific time this coming week and that we’d set it all up and get it done. Again, he was just extremely cool.

    And was very funny and charming as he spoke tonight. The funniest thing, I thought, was relaying a story about being in a slump during a contract year. Ted Turner, he recalled, came in to the clubhouse and yelled across the room at him, “keep it up Dale, your saving me 100′s of thousands of dollars next year.” As a side note, I love that a story about contracts in the 80′s is on the 100′s of thousands scale as opposed to millions.

    That was a great win today. That 8th gave me a panic attack, but a stirring comeback. I was flipping back and forth from the football, and it was as thrilling as any of those games today. I like that they are still out their competing.

    Awesome, Steve. Can’t wait to hear the interview.

    Tcc Says:

    Batted around against Carpenter??? Who are these guys??

  14. 89
    Steve Says:

    Tcc – I just headed over here to make the same post. 6 runs against the potential Cy Young winner? Unbelievable. Oh, what could have been this year …

    Tcc Says:

    4 in a row. 5/6 road trip. Tremendous job by JV today. Looking forward to the next podcast, guys.

    Leah Says:

    Get swept by the Reds at home…sweep Cards on the road. I don’t get it.

    Curt Says:

    I was at the Falcons game. Glad to hear the good news. Really a bipolar team. Weird. What a week though. If only….

    Bubdylan Says:

    Steve, sounds like a super good deal with Dale. I’m proud for you. Good luck.

    So now we’re winning again, huh? It’s like missing three weeks of a soap opera, ya don’t lose much of the story.

  19. 94
    Leah Says:

    So true Bub…they came back to life which someone always does on a soap opera. How’s the swine flu?

  20. 95
    Bubdylan Says:

    Leah, the flu seems on its way out, thanks for asking. One of the mildest versions I’ve ever had, actually. I’m glad it’s not turned into the nightmare (so far) that a lot of people feared.

    I’m glad the boys are showing life again, even if it won’t translate into the playoffs. Should be a big mental lift going into next season.

    G’night ABT. Go Braves!!!!

    Bubdylan Says:

    Yikes, I hope I wasn’t responsible for a hundred posts a week the last two weeks, but I bet I was.

    I ain’t counting…
