5/30/08: The Comeback
After being behind 9-1 after 5 innings, the Cubs rally in the sixth and the seventh inning with key hits from Henry Blanco, Jim Edmunds, and Mark DeRosa’s GW HR.
On a personal note, this happened on my last day of High School. Driving home, I immediately listen to Pat & Ron and heard this on the radio. Luckily, my excitement of the comback didn’t cause a car crash. Nevertheless, it was memorable.
For your listening pleasure, Pat & Ron on the call.
Personal Note 2: I was at this game. I had just returned from my first year of college Out East. While it had been a great year, I was very excited to return to a place where ordering a ‘pop’ wouldn’t earn me ridicule.
Those last innings were spent in a euphoric high that left my voice raw from screaming and hands red from high-fives. I still keep that ticket stub in my wallet for good luck. And I learned that 1060 W. Addison is a great place to welcome you home no matter how long you’ve been gone.
