The End of This Novel
"So do you wanna go out tomorrow night?" she asked nervously.
"Not tomorrow," he said. "I gotta baseball game."
"What about the next night?"
"Game," he said. "Look, I've just got thing baseball thing going on. Ask me in November."
"Oh, okay," she said, eyes misty.
Votto opened the car door and walked out of the drive-in theater. He continued out to the road and stuck up his thumb. Time to go home, he thought.

Fortune Cookie
The cat and the Bartman; a sign of good things to come.

"This is a game to be savored, not gulped. There's time to discuss everything between pitches or between innings." ~Bill Veeck

Reds.comment of the Series
"Big deal you bunch of weak hitting nancies. Two games don't make a season. Dusty Baker's an idiot and he will ruin your team. Come June you'll be in last place. hahahahahahaha."

New Drinking Game
Every time Joey Votto seems to prematurely pull his foot off the bag before the out is made.

What I Saw, Heard, Felt, Smelled, Tasted
Cubs for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Fun to hear Chicago fans booing their own, all because of us! Joey Votto means everything to this city right now. I'm glad we beat Carlos Zambrano. If there is one man I hate in baseball, it is Carlos Zambrano. All those slumpers seem to be waking up (Bruce, Phillips, Hernandez, Gonzalez). Edwin is still sleeping.
