Stonewall This!

big z.jpgMr. Sarah Palin (that would be Todd) apparently isn’t the only one stonewalling these days.  No.  Adam Kennedy and the Cardinals’ assault on the previously crowned no-hit wonder Dragon Ball “Z” proved that the Chicago Cubs are not ready to clinch the division.

After having bedazzled the bejesus out of all of us in his last start against the Astros, Zambrano only lasted 1 1/3 while showing his trademark signs of being Zambrano: throwing temper tantrums on the mound, mean mugging umpires, yapping obscenities to himself (or to whoever listen). 

In essence, he acted like a big baby.

In fact, I dug up this old video archive of Big Z playing some video games:

But that’s nothing new.  Perhaps it is a solemn reminder that the Cubs have a lot of growing up to do before they’re ready to overcome the 400 lb. gorrilla in the room. 

Inevitable as it may be, I hope and pray that the Cubs find it in themselves to be themselves and not clinch while playing my dear yet nearly hopeless Cardinals.  Perhaps the Brian Bartons and Brendan Ryans of the Redbirds can find ways to stonewall the Cubs’ clincher… at least until next week. 

In the meantime, while juggling the intricacies of stonewalling the Troopergate investigation and misleading US Americans with her cheery hockey mom charm, hopefully Gov. Palin will come to the realization that despite her longing hopes for a quick ascension, as of right now, she still isn’t at the top of the ticket… though, to hear her say it, you wouldn’t know it:

Yikes!  That might — quite possibly — be the scariest thing I’ve ever heard.

Don’t hate me… ‘cuz I’m right.

    I don’t know which video was scarier. (Well, yeah I do.) Btw, what language was that kid speaking? Some variation of German mixed with pig Latin? Amazing how Zambrano could go from no-hitter to no-outer. You must have loved it, Jeff.

    We clinched (as if you haven’t heard it a billion times).
    Sorry it was against your redbirds, but it had to be done. =]StephanieMarmol-ade: A Cubs Blog

    Well done, Cubs. You did it. You officially made my life miserable. But I gotta tip my hat cuz that’s the right thing to do. Now, if you’ll be needing me I’ll be slashing my wrists in the other room.
