Yet another reason to dislike Carlos Zambrano
“You come into a ballpark like this and you see great things,” the Cubs ace told The Associated Press on Saturday before his team’s 10-1 exhibition loss at the sparkling ballpark in the Bronx.
“You wish that Chicago’d build a new stadium for the Cubs,” he said.
I had big plans. We were going to watch the game on ESPN2 and eat hot dogs in front of the TV. Except the game is blacked out. Why? I don’t know. You will have to ask Major League Baseball, or perhaps Mediacom cable. I am enraged. I sincerely hope they are not going to black out every game on cable this season.
I know this is corny and so on but I do love it so. (I hope I haven’t offended)
“I believe in the Church of Baseball. I’ve tried all the major religions and most of the minor ones. I’ve worshipped Buddha, Allah, Brahma, Vishnu, Siva, trees, mushrooms and Isadora Duncan. I know things. For instance, there are 108 beads in a Catholic rosary and there are 108 stitches in a baseball. When I heard that I gave Jesus a chance.
I’ve tried ’em all, I really have, and the only church that truly feeds the soul is the Church of Baseball.”
I wish I could find a clip of this from Bull Durham, but alas and alack I cannot. Youtube has let me down.
