How this for a coincidence coming full-circle? In May, Marlon Byrd landed on the DL when he was beaned in the head with a pitch (in Beantown I might add). He was replaced in the game by Reed Johnson --- the same Reed Johnson that was beaned in the head earlier this month, during a rehab assignment of his own, in Des Moines. Tonight, Byrd stepped into the box for the first time since being hit, and he was hit again --- this time, in the ribs. Ouchy.

The Big Cubs play a double-header, Tuesday. They're so bad, even Ernie Banks is saying.Let's just play one."
Tuesday, the IceBorg is going to hop into a racecar, at Iowa Speedway. I'm not too worried though. Our interns tell me the dude refuses to go over 50mph on I-80.
Andy and I talked a lot about the abyiss that is the sports landscape this summer, on Murph n Andy. There's really no interesting sporting event taking place, until the start of college football, except the British Open. I can't wait to see what Rory does on his home turf. Andy is pretty upset that there's nothing to keep his interest, but I'm just happy that college football is now only two months away. Bring on September 3rd!
My golfing buddy is obsessed with playing before 8:00am. I don't understand it, either, because he works until 10:30pm just like me. Last night, I went to bed at 4:00am, and had to get up at 7:15am to golf. I'm running on Diet 7up and garden salsa Sun Chips.
