Game 140 Open Thread: September 7, 2005

15-6, 3.62 11-11, 4.41

it's chicago's last game at busch stadium, and cubleyans are obsessed with blowing the place up. this guy was so traumatized there as a child, watching the cubs lose game after game after game, that he's making a special trip to attend the implosion. like he says, it's cheaper than therapy. and my friend al at bleed cubbie blue is encouraging cub fans to enter the press-the-demolition-button raffle. "I can just imagine the look on the Cardinals' officials' faces if a Cub fan won this and showed up in full Cubs garb," he writes. yeah, but imagine the look on the cub fan's face when he gets strapped to a girder and blown up with the old ballyard . . . . .

juuuuuuust kidding, ev'ybody. we love our northside neighbors. . .

trivia question: per bleed cubbie blue, derek lee last night became the 9th cub to hit 40 homers in a season. how many cardinals have topped the 40-hr threshold, and who are they?
