Bentel Triumverate talking baseball strategy . . . or where to go for dinner that night.
about the Commissioner. "What? We're just sitting here."
Even though the Cougars put a lot of runners on base and consistently found ways not to score, the game was exciting. And then around the 8th inning I looked over to the right and noticed a guy signing a baseball for a fan.
It's the guy in the blue shirt. I blurted out who I thought it was (guessed correctly), then I turned and asked the rest of the owners, "Who is that signing an autograph?" Without even looking where I pointed out, Paul immediately said "Is it Carlos May?!" The rest of the owners looked over and eventually we all agreed (and were proven right) it was Moises Alou, former Cubs rightfielder. Funny that a former Cub All-Star was about fifty feet from us and no one got up to take his picture (other than the one I snapped here since I knew I was writing this blog) or get his autograph. Based on the comments of the owners, we're all still pissed about his reaction in the 8th inning of Game 6 in the 2003 NLCS.
As the Coulters headed out for the day and handshakes were passed around, Mike said "Good seeing you guys! Let's do this again next year." Which actually is a pretty good idea.
