Look out! Not satisfied with simply hospitalizing Chicago Cubs rookie Tyler Colvin(notes) on Sunday, those evil maple bats turned their bloodlust toward a couple of pink-hatted male fans — the heck? — during Tuesday's game at Wrigley Field. That's one sharp piece of lumber!
As I mentioned last week on Twitter, someone dumped a pair of box seats to Wednesday night's Giants-Cubs game on my 77-year-old great aunt. Even though she lives quite a distance from the Friendly Confines and probably hasn't been to a Cubs game since the Ladies' Days of the P.K. Wrigley era, someone apparently thought this was a better alternative than burning the tickets for warmth.
And hey, hey! They were right. Being the super great aunt that she is, I received the tickets in the mail so I can show up to enjoy a little NL West pennant-race action and one last malt cup of the season. All from a set of nice and free seats.
After seeing this photo, though, I think I'm going dressed as Iron Man.
