So, being the patriot that I am, I was watching that thrill ride of a game over in the World Baseball Classic that was Canada vs USA. Yes, up until the 8th, it looked like Canada was going to beat the US and advance to the next round, but then the funny thing happened and the States bats came alive and they fired back to beat Canada. In the Canadian tradition of,”Well, at least the Canucks put up a good show against the US” doesn’t cut it here. Both teams played amazing and it was one of the most exciting baseball games I’ve ever seen(next to that Tampa Bay/Yankees game a couple of years ago which sent Tampa to the playoffs-look that one up)Congratulations to the US for advancing, and cheers to Canada for making everyone believe there’s more than hockey in this great land.
After I was sulking in the loss to the US, my wife tells me that at least the Cubs won 9-3 over the Padres. It’s the only time I’ve ever said,”It’s only Spring Training”
What do you mean,”It’s only Spring Training?” All right, this cheered me up because I think it’s been the first time this training that the Cubs showed the flashes and sneak peeks of the years to come(with the exception of Anthony Rizzo playing for Italy)
Alfonso Soriano hit a Two Run Double and Christian Villanueva homered and what about Jorge Soler? He hit one out of the park. Great job guys! Up next is the Diamondbacks today at 4:10.
