Woo Hoo!!! Go Cubs Go!!!
Carlos Zambrano just pitched a no-hitter...it was so cool!!! What a fun game to see! After the Cubs hitting a rough spot, it looks like this might be the thing to pull them out of it! The magic number is now 7...Woo Hoo!!
Since the boys were still awake, I went up to tell Jack what happened. I told him that the Cubs won 5-0 and he was pretty excited. I then started to explain to him that Carlos Zambrano pitched the whole game and the Astros didn't get any hits at all. His response "you mean a no-hitter, Mom?". Ummm...yeah, that is what I meant, Jack. I also explained to him that the last time a Cub's pitcher pitched a no hitter was in 1972. I told him to remember this night because he might be 42 years old before it happens again. He thought that was pretty cool.
On a side note, I have to admit that I was a bit nervous when there were 2 outs in the bottow of the 9th inning. I mean, these are the Cubs, and Carlos was looking a little tired. I think he would have been so mad if he gave up a hit that he could have very well gave up 5 runs really quick if they left him in the game.
