I had a quiet dinner with my wife at Gibson’s in Chicago after the celebration in the clubhouse Saturday night. I know that a lot of the guys got together later that night, and while I obviously enjoyed celebrating with them at the ballpark, I know that my wife didn’t get to take part in that celebration so I wanted to have an opportunity to share it with her as well.
So we had a quiet bite to eat and then went back to the hotel to get some sleep, which we didn’t end up getting. We were up the whole night. Even though we both tried to relax, we were absolutely wired to the point of breakfast coming to our door without a whole lot of snooze time.
Now we go back to work today with a light workout at the ballpark and turn our focus to the Rockies. Before I do that though, I want to take a moment to say thank you for the comments that have been posted by people in response to this blog.
It’s special to me when your hometown fans support you and what you’re about and what you’re doing. So, too, have the comments that I’ve gotten so far. It just makes me feel good. It also reminds you that you’re going about your business the right way and that day in and day out, when the eyes are on you, that they, one, have an expectation and, two, have the confidence in you in those situations.
It just means a lot to me, and I’m thankful for it. It’s exciting — especially this time of year — to have our fans so in tune with what we are doing, and it’s been a whole lot of fun for me to bring a little insight behind the scenes through this blog as we go through the postseason.
