Or if you want to take it back a few generations, Mordecai Brown is laughing it up a bit at Honus Wagner’s expense. Gabby Harnett feeling glee over the Waner brothers (both Paul and Lloyd).
MAYBE EVEN 19th Century star Cap Anson is feeling some joy (although perhaps wondering who let all those “colored boys” out onto the playing field).
In my mind, I can see how all of them have been agitating (playfully, of course) over whose ball club was going to be successful this week.
Now back to the earthly realm of existence that we all occupy; the one where Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta provoked a bench-clearing brawl Wednesday night after the Pirates hit him with a pitch.
|ARNAZ: Hearing his laugh at Cubs win|
I don’t know if the Cubs are capable of beating St. Louis, Los Angeles or New York in the rounds of playoffs that will resume for Chicago on Friday against the Cardinals. But I do sense that Wednesday’s victory will be enough for Cubs fans to feel some sort of moral victory that we’ll hear about for years to come!
