Of course everyone is excited as the Chicago Cubs defeated the Philadelphia Phillies thanks to that big blast. I can’t tell if it reached Waveland or not, but the angle suggests that it did. In fact, all three homers hit today probably get there if not for that scoreboard in the way.
That Kris Bryant bomb started a skirmish in the street that reminded me of this commercial, even if the ball was most definitely fair:
Not bad for a guy who is on his way to retirement. And certainly not a bad way to spend five million dollars over two years if you’re the Cubs. The Cubs now have two shots to win another series after their last series victory. This team is pretty good.
