Cubs Chatter

For those of you who have not crossed the chalk lines of a baseball field, "chatter " is all the "hey batter, hey batter" stuff you yell at the other teams' batters. Chatter can also include positive reinforcements to your team mates including among others, "Pick me up" (after you have made a mind boggling, heart breaking error or have struck out with the bases loaded), "can of corn" (for a lazy pop flys), and my personal favorite, "two ducks on the pond" (something you yell to your teammate when he/she is batting with two men/women on base).

So this is my new series, "Cubs Chatter".

So, if the Cubs win 4 in a row tonight, how do we react? Just stay quiet and wear the same socks tomorrow.

This may not be a problem, however, as the Cubs are already down 3-0 in the 3rd inning... with bases loaded and no outs for the Astros.
