It’s on a fitting note that the dismal April ends with Alfonso Soriano hitting his ninth homer of the season and the most by a Chicago Cub in the month of April.
Yesterday, Soriano belted two homers to help give the Cubs a 4-2 win over the Diamondbacks and avenge the slaughter the day before. The two clubs finish off April today. I hope he hits two more.
So yesterday, Darcy gave me a present(Mary Beth helped him pick it out) a retro T-shirt with the Cubs bear on it. I will wear it proudly tomorrow as I watch the Cubs finish off the Diamondbacks.
The other things that are looking up today is the weather. The sun is shining and it appears to be 15 degrees Celsius, and almost grass cutting weather. It doesn’t have much to do with baseball, but it got me to thinking about sending away for that Scott’s turf builder Wrigley Green stuff that makes your lawn look like Wrigley Field. Then I thought that would be obsessive. However, my goal is to get a replica Wrigley Field bench for the basement so we can watch the games in style!
Nope, instead I’m going to make a trip to the hardware store and get the lawn mower geared up for the season. By the end of the summer, Darcy will be hitting the ball into the neighbour’s yard.
