Exactly 34 years ago today the Cubs shutout the Cards while scoring 9 or more runs. The final today at Busch Stadium was 9 - 0 in favor of the Cubbies. Even though the game took 2:47 to play, the game was really over after 3 innings when the score was 8 - 0. Maintaining focus when the game is essentially over can be very difficult. It was today. I slowed my cut down and tried not to be aggressive. It is my opinion and an opinion shared by many that one of the most embarrassing actions on the field is "false hustle" by a player. An example of "false hustle" by a TV sports director is cutting a 9 - 0 game like a 1 - 0 game or the 7th game of the World Series. No false hustle on our air today.
