THE COLTS ROCK AND THE CUBS NEED TO QUIT GIVING ME HEART ATTACKS
Though it is only the 5th inning in the Cubs NLCS playoff game, they are up by 10 runs, so unless they self destruct, they will tie the series tonight. Whew.
And, if you missed the Colts/Bucs game on Monday Night Football… call ABC and order the tape. (Fast forward to the fourth quarter… until there’s about five minutes left to go in the game).
Jene’ picked the Bucs to win in her football pool (she’d been perfect so far this year) and I kept insisting that the Colts would win (I’m intensely loyal, even during lost cause years — for the Colts that would be every year since they moved to Indy until Peyton came along) and she openly mocked me until the fourth quarter. Then she told me to go to bed and to take my sorry Touchdown and Extra Point Monkeys (Colts toys) with me. So with 5 minutes left in the game, after Peyton threw an interception for a touchdown to bring their deficit to 21 points, I was near tears. My Colts were going to lose for the first time this season.
I was wound up from the game, so I took two Tylenol PM so I could get to sleep. I was getting sleepy, then the Colts started putting on a clinic as Tampa apparently thought they had won the game and went to sleep. I had a tough time staying awake until overtime, but I made it. The Tylenol kept me from screaming as much, but I was jumping up and down in my room. Peyton Manning is the MAN. I didn’t gloat to Jene’ too much. :p
Okay… back to back homeruns for the Marlins in the 6th. Come on, Cubbies. Harry Caray is turning over in his grave. Don’t let this one slip away! No Tylenol PM for me tonight… no way. I might miss something.
