Saturday, May 8th 2010

The Barnstormers can't seem to sustain any momentum.  After two straight wins, the 'Stormer came home to face 1-3 Cleveland, but turnovers hamstrung the team.  What's more disconcerting, the crowd was pretty sparse by 'Stormer standards.  Officially, eight thousand and change showed up, but actually attendance was much lower.

Paddy O'Prado has a change of heart regarding The Preakness.  Paddy was originally going to skip the race, but now tells me (via a horse whisperer) that he plans to run at Pimlico.  Andy Fales is already angling for a trip to Baltimore.

There a running joke among I-Cubs staffers that anytime the weather takes a turn for the worse, the team must be returning from a road trip.  Another fine example of that this weekend.  I'm supposed to go to Principal Park (as a fan) tomorrow, but I'm strongly reconsidering.  Baseball isn't much fun to watch in person when there's a wind chill advisory.
