We interrupt this website to celebrate the first radiocast of the Chicago Cubs this season for Spring Training.
Yes, it's true, I actually listen to Spring Training baseball games for the Cubs. (Not the whole games, usually. I'm not that loopy. After all, around about the fifth inning, teams start replacing the starters and second-stringers to see get a look at the minor leaguers even I've never heard of.)
This might not mean much to most people, but when you listen to part of around 150 games a year, it's always a good sign to get the first game in. And hey, we listeners need Spring Training ourselves to get our ears and enthusiasm in shape.
Thank the heavens for GameDay Audio on the Internet.
Oh. The Cubs beat the Angels 11-2. This means nothing. But it's better than losing, which is less than nothing. Especially when your team lost 101 games last year and hasn't won a World Series in 104 years. You can any win you can. Even those that don't count.
