Yes, I have a confession to make.  It is a very embarrassing thing, especially being a Cubs fan and blogger, that I have to admit.  And it probably is no excuse that I woke up at 6 AM and have been romping around Chicago and working most of the day.  But it’s something that I have to get off my chest. I fell asleep during the Cubs game. That’s right…I just didn’t have the energy to stay awake and attentive throughout the whole asskicking.  It doesn’t mean I hate the Cubs, or that I was bored (or maybe I was, I dunno).  I just couldn’t keep the eyes open.  Maybe I should have followed the Bulls instead, but I figured I should just keep watching to see what would happen.  I did stay awake for the first few innings, when the Cubs took an early lead, lost it, then tied the game.  But right around when Jeff Samardzija decided to throw batting practice, I just kind of zonked out.  And when I finally snapped awake again, the Cubs were down 7-2 and Hector Rondon was pitching.  I had to go on the interwebs to figure out what I missed.  It actually wasn’t that long that I was unconscious (I’m notorious for my power naps) but the Nationals were very good, despite missing Bryce Harper, at scoring a lot of runs in a short period of time.  Serves me right. Yeah, I think that was one of the reasons.  Bryce Harper wasn’t playing, and therefore I was bored.  Damn you, ingrown toenails! But I bet I would’ve stayed awake if I was actually at the ballgame instead of on my couch.  Ah, the comforts of home.
