Tonight is the night of the Midseason Classic, the All Star Game in the soon to be demolished Yankee Stadium. As part of my plan to appear in these pages less often in hopes of garnering more votes in the upcoming R&R Awards polling, I’ve saved my tales of the glory of the 2008 CENTENNIAL CHAMPION CHICAGO CUBS. However, I cannot resist sharing the joy of this year’s Cubosity with your three (now four because you’ve added a reporter) readers.
At this, the 2008 All Star Break, the Cubs have THE BEST RECORD IN ALL OF BASEBALL and are in firm control of the National League Central. Eight, count ‘em, EIGHT Cub players are on the field at Yankee Stadium tonight for the All Star Game. You will see more Cubs starting the All Star Game than you ever have, and the exhibition of finesse and power they will put on will stun you more than the success of the Katy Perry record.
Enjoy tonight’s performances from members of the TEAM OF DESTINY, and remember, there is still time to find yourself a place on the Cubs Championship Bandwagon. I’m holding the seating charts, so please contact me if you’d like a place before we have to use the overflow cars, which are repurposed diaper transport vehicles from the Pitt/Jolie household.
