"The bases were drunk, and I painted the black with my best yakker. But blue squeezed me, and I went full. I came back with my heater, but the stick flares one the other way and chalk flies for two bases. Three earnies! Next thing I know, skipper hooks me and I'm sipping suds with the clubby." - Ed Lynch in Cubs: Where Have You Gone? (Fred Mitchell, Sports Publishing, 09/01/2004, Page 158)
