On vacation in south Florida this week. What Cubs fan couldn’t use a few days away? Needless to say, I’m keeping the Cubs chatter short and sweet the next couple of days. After all, my vacations come around about as often as a Cubs winning streak.
Always the addict, I couldn’t miss Derrek Lee’s first game as a Pirate. He didn’t disappoint–not me, not Pittsburgh, not Cubs fans.
Lee became the first Pirate to homer twice in his Pittsburgh debut since another former Cub, Shawon Dunston, did it against Cleveland on Sept. 2, 1997.
Lee made a grand entrance, the Cubs won, and I slipped into Margaritaville watching at the Pineapple Grill.
I think I’ll try for two in a row tomorrow night.
