Enterprise Bridge

Coming next year:

Rampant DVD piracy, story at 11.

Cubs lost 6-4. 2 out, one on, 3-2 pitch, bottom of the 9th, Sosa crushes one, and you see him do his hop before the camera cuts away to the ball. Straight up center field, and it was caught on the warning track. Another 10 feet and that was a tie game. Ah well, tomorrow afternoon in Atlanta, here's hoping...

Reading everything2 entries like this and this tonight, they were striking a louder chord than usual. I wonder if I'm going into another phase of being annoyed/mildly depressed at being single. Not like I'm in any position to do anything about it. Though I'm SOL, Omar (see yesterday's entry) managed to find a homecoming date this year, so there's hope for present and future generations.

HOLY COW!

CUBS WIN! CUBS WIN! CUBS WIN!




I had /topic * ^B^_CUBS WIN!^_^B sitting on my IRC command line with 2 out and an 0-2 count. I hit return the instant I saw the whiff. First postseason series win since the 1908 World Series. We'll see what happens...

The scene outside of Wrigley is a huge mob of very, very happy people. They're waving 2x4s with "GOT WOOD!" written on them. They're loud, but they're peaceful. The cops are present, but nobody's getting themselves into trouble.


They fined Robert Fick. Fucking good. Fuck him. "I just tried to hit his glove." Well yeah, but at that speed, with two moving bodies, you can't expect to be that accurate, you can't be surprised when you slam into his wrist. Coulda fucked Karros up bad.

Atlanta should be very happy. The last time that city was invaded by an army of blue-clad northerners, they burned it to the ground. :-)
