Cubbies were up 8-3 going into the 9th. Which is like most other teams nursing a one-run lead. As you might have guessed, they gave up three runs before Troy Tulowitzki cracked a 3-run home run off Bobby Howry, giving the Rockies the 9-8 lead, much to the dismay of Cub fans everywhere. And one in particular:
My favorite part was the remark of the TV analyst, I think Bob Brenly, who got this blast off:
There’s no IQ test to get into the ballpark and idiots will make their presence known from time-to-time…there’s always one cracker jack in every crowd.
That’s great. I’m also appreciative of Vin Scully and his policy of not showing nut bags like this one on camera so they don’t receive their moment of glory. And I would be remiss if I didn’t include Piniella’s line about the security guard:
“I’ll tell you what,” added Piniella, “[Bears coach] Lovie Smith is looking for him.”
Also check out the video at FanIQ, but there’s someone giving an annoying narrative. Imagine what would’ve happened if the Cubs hadn’t won!Google+
