Trememdous win for Windies. Too bad I don't have satellite service myself to watch. Sooooo exciting when the victory isn't sealed until the last couple balls. If I read the report correctly, Lara was nearly caught on his first ball.
But then quickly turned things around for his squad.
At the same time, I really feel for SA. For the host country to lose such a close match on opening day...poor guys. I know a good pal of mine is hurting some now.
Cub fans, by consensus, are the best in baseball. Year after year, in good times and (mostly) bad, they turn out in vociferous numbers, sustaining themselves with a heavenly ichor that combines loyalty, criticism, cheerfulness, durability, rage, beer and hope, in exquisite proportions.
