Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Stupid Cubs tied it at 1 in the 8th. Going to be hard for the Rockies to win this game with the Cubs batting last.

Matty V is ok but A-Roid and Jessica Mendoza are horrible. They have been slobbering all over the Cubs. I listen to the radio feed during the season.

Twitter is still pretty bad, though. It's only good for tracking UPRR 844 when it's on the move.

Uggh. And I had picked that neither game would go into extra innings on Yahoo Sports. No $1000 for me
