Ok, I shouldn’t have went to bed early. I missed Tyler Colvin’s heroics. I wanted to get to bed early because of our Toronto trip today.
Tyler Colvin was having a huge slump in hits and suddenly he comes back with the game winner. He missed his chance for a homer in the ninth when a fan interefered and the umpire ruled it a double.
Tyler Colvin was 0-36 and hadn’t had a hit since April 28th. Hopefully, having his hitless streak will turn the corner for the Cubs as well. There’s 100 games left and they can still do it. It’s not entirely impossible. However, the Cubs should have been playing Tyler Colvin all season long. He’s back and it was alkso nice to see Marlon Byrd in the dugout and he should be back soon.
So, we leave for Toronto today. We’re heading to the Hockey Hall of Fame . It’s kinda weird because I’ve never been there before and in many ways the stereotypes are true about Canada and hockey. We grew up watching stories like
it’s a classic and I’m excited to go and visit an important part of our Canadian heritage with my family. Bobby Orr, Gordie Howe , Guy Lafleur and Wayne Gretzky are all enshrined there.
On Saturday, we go see the Blue Jays and the Red Sox. Look for us by the third base bleachers. We’ll be the ones in the Cubs uniforms.
I’m going to post plenty of pictures.
