Hurricane Kevin Orie looms

May 12, 2006 | Comments (1) | by Jake the Terrible Cubs Fan

A massive low pressure system has stalled out over Lake Michigan, bringing cold, windy, wet weather to Chicago. The system, known as Hurricane Kevin Orie should make the weekend series with San Diego a miserable one. One plus is that the wind is blowing from the west at 10-20 mph so we could see some balls flying out. This just a day after the three-year anniversary of Hurricane Steve Buechele that brought rain and wind gusts up to 40 mph. While all the home runs were wiped off the books, they did play long enough for Eli Marrero to tear his ACL, prompting Brant to shout "Get off the field! You're being selfish!" as Eli lay in a crumpled heap, writhing in pain on the wet grass.

Any injured St. Louis Cardinal is a good St. Louis Cardinal.
