Before I start ranting about the unbelievable game 7 of the World Series just a reminder, I hope to see all of you tomorrow night, Friday November 4th at the Hearing Room in Lowell Ma. when we kick off our Official Launch of the HughMcQueenMusicProject. Show starts at 7:30. Tickets just $5.00, BYOB, plenty of free parking and Elise says that there will be lots and lots of snacks!!!!!
Holy Cow!!! What a way for the baseball season to end with a seventh game going into extra innings and the Chicago Cubs coming away as the 2016 World Series Champions. I confess I was hoping that Tito Francona's Indians would pull it off, but I'm just as happy to see the folks in Chicago have something to celebrate. As a die hard Red Sox fan I feel it only fair to warn all those long time Cub's fans that their Baseball World as they have come to know it will never be the same. Expectations have forever been raised now that you have tasted the Champagne of Victory in Chicago. The 108 years of suffering that served as your badge of honor has been permanently removed thanks to Free Agency, late season acquisitions, and a skinny kid from the streets of Brookline Massachusetts. My guess is that our former GM and 'business of baseball genius' Theo Epstein didn't sneak out of Progressive Field after last night's victory over the Indians wearing a Gorilla Suit. As long as he remains in Chicago he may never have to buy another beer.
Watching the game last night I couldn't help but take note of all the familiar faces that spent time with us in Beantown; Epstein, Lester, Lackey, vs Francona, Crisp, Napoli, and Mills. So, you're welcome Chicago.......you're welcome Cleveland.
As for the rest of us, we have three things to celebrate.
1. We no longer have to listen to Joe Buck invent words and overstate the obvious.
2. No more pre-game post game commentary from A-Roid.
3. The Equipment truck heads to Florida in less than four months.
