Wildcard Wednesday: “It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.”

I don’t have to tell anyone that the Cubs are off to about as depressing a start as could be. So, what is one to do with oneself? Don’t think too much about it, I say. Here are a few trifling distractions for your hump-day.

Linkage!

Did you know that Curtis Granderson shops at Target? He used to be a Wal-Mart man, but I suppose that he’s had to take that step up since joining the Yankees. (I love you, Curtis.)

Meet high school pitcher (BASEBALL, not softball) Martina Sementelli. She does not throw like a girl.

Bill Murray makes everything better.

On This Day in History…

-Mark Twain passed away on this date in 1910

-The Brooklyn Dodgers won their 10th straight game to start the season (1955)

-The Pirates and Cubs combined for 9 home runs. The Pirates won, 8-5 (1964)

-The Yankees, with a line-up pulled from a hat by manager Billy Martin, beat the Blue Jays 8-6. (1977)

-A National League umpire was arrested for stealing baseball cards (1990)

-The Expos David Palmer pitched the fourth shortened, perfect game in major league baseball history. The game was called due to rain after five innings. (1984)

  1. HA! If you only knew how picky I am…

    I admire the hard work, attention to details. and humor that is normally associated with your posts. I mean, you cited an ump that stole baseball cards and mention Mark Twain in one post. Quality not quantity my friend! It may have been a little but it takes work to come up with something everyday. Thanx again for the post and the time spent whipping it up.
