Play of the day: by a fan with a hat

Reed Johnson hit a three-run homer in the fifth inning of last night’s Cubs-Brewers game.  It was a nice homer. Should have gone out on Waveland Avenue. But this fan and his hat had other ideas.

That’s serious hat-savvy. Especially considering that, based on where the fan was sitting, he was probably a good three or four Old Styles into his evening at the time.

    Wait! Was that a Marlins jersey his lady was wearing? Kudos for the hat-trick (hah!), the Cubs should sign him to be in the outfield.

    No I think it’s the Jersey with the Bear on the C. Would be weird otherwise.

    Hope that guy is around again for the weekend set. Doesn’t look like he has the arm to throw them back in.

      Mr. Len, I wager that the Cubs take two of three from the Yankees this weekend. Why? Why not?

        We could bring in the batboys to pitch vs. Cubs (as you know, kind of a sentimental favorite of mine). That’s how we roll in the 212-718, even the 312-773.

        The Cubs play with Heart! Just like that dude in Captain Planet.

    I don’t know what I envy more about that guy; his catch, his seats, his bitchin’ a$$ mustache, his mullet, or his girl friend. Yeah, he’s 4 for 4 on that deal. I hate him.

      For some reason he kind of reminds me of Randy Quaid’s character in Major League:

        Well now THAT cheered me right up. Look! Quaid in stubby nut-cluster shorts! Oh the humanity…

      Uh, that’s 5 for 5. If he caught it in an Old Style 16oz cup, it would be 6 for 6.

        Right. The bugger can probably count better than me, too. Evil death-ray thoughts….

        Len, Seisenta y ocho was using metric system numbers.
