New York State of Mind

I’m not a big fan of having the most current article at the site root and not providing an alternative link. Hopefully if you decide to click the link, you’ll get to the right article.

The driver walked down the steps, and Mr. Durso got behind the wheel.

Thankfully, by now, a New York cop was quickly approaching the bus. Faster than you can say “WTF,” he got on the bus, looked around, said “WTF” – and realized we truly were the Chicago Cubs. He got Peter out of the driver’s seat, told the driver to get back on the bus, and “tour guided” us around all the tour groups and straight over to where we should have been dropped off over an hour before. By this point, it was roughly 45 minutes before first pitch.

Players literally sprinted to the clubhouse. As everyone entered the room, the image of Don Zimmer standing in the middle of the clubhouse with his arms folded and steam coming out of his ears was priceless.

Needless to say, I learned my lesson. From that point in time, I always took the early bus. You know, you’re never late if you’re early.
