Every time. This clip makes me laugh the same way as those videos of goats who scream like humans and the “dodge a wrench” scene in Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story.

I can't find any GIFs, and they don't compare to that Eloy silliness, but this reminds me of Jacque Jones regularly spiking throws 15 feet in front of him.

Wasn't there a Cubs walk-off against Colorado back in the Sosa days where the Rockies made a series of horrible defensive plays which led to a walk off on like 3 errors in one play? I can't find the video clip and I don't remember if it was against the Rockies or not

Kinda:


Technically no errors on the Rockies, just stupidity by the Cubs and poor decision making by the Rockies.

It was also the game where Angel Hernandez threw Steve McMichael out of the game after singing the 7th inning stretch and McMichael threatened to meet him after the game from the booth. (Edit: I guess Hernandez didn't through him out, Randy Marsh did, but whatever)

Girardi should have never been a manager for that dumb horsefeathers alone.

I'm guessing you're thinking of this.



This was also the game where Steve McMichael got kicked out of the game for being Steve McMichael.

The Cubs had a walk-off win against the Rockies each of Sammy's last 4 years.

ETA: At least I added the info about the 4 consecutive years of walk-offs.

I think we've discussed this, but it's kind of ridiculous how many insane Cubs/Rockies games there have been at Wrigley when they only come here for one series per season. That 01 game, the Bob Howry blows it/Soriano wins it game in 07, the wild rally in 08, the 18 wild-card game, the Rafael Soriano disaster/Kris Bryant walk-off game in 15. Plus in Colorado you have Javy's debut/12-inning game in 14 and the Dexter Fowler GW HR in 15.

Chip and Joe Carter in the booth are painful.

Something ridiculous happens literally every time I go to a Cubs game at Coors, be it on the field or off. I was at the Dex GW HR. Sosa's 3 3-run HR game in 98. Javy's debut. Got to see Mark Prior's first (and I believe only) HR. A friend also threw a seat cushon onto the field from the cheap seats after a Cubs HR, and then the entire crowd followed suit, and it resulted in a 10 minute delay. A drunk Rockies fan sitting behind me, who decided I was a fun guy to banter with, went on to give me a wet willy. A WET WILLY! Probably the 2nd closest I've ever been in my life to just punching someone in the face. He left his seat after I shouted at/threatened him for a few minutes. Unreal. I'm mad just thinking about it again. ...although a have a stupider story from the last time I went to Wrigley which is too involved and dumb and off-topic to go into detail here.

Gotta love the absolutely patented Chip Carey, “Runner coming home, play at the plate, and he is... OUT! Safe! Safe!”

this one always comes to mind; not a lot of opportunities to see a 3B need to hurdle the 1B
