Clark & Addison Episode XII - “QUALMS“ A REUNION OF 20 SOMETHING CUB FANS ON THE CORNER OF CLARK AND ADDISON IN CHICAGO - IN A SMALL BAR NAMED WEAGHMAN’S PARK. THE CUBS ORIGINALLY PLAYED AT WEAGHMAN PARK IN CHICAGO BEFORE TRANSFERRING TO CUBS PARK IN 1919 - WHICH BECAME WRIGLEY FIELD IN 1926. NIGHTLY IN DEPTH DISCUSSIONS OF CUBS AND CHICAGO OCCUR AT WEAGHMAN’S PARK. WEAGHMAN’S PARK ONLY SERVES FOOD AND DRINK ORIGINATING FROM ABOVE THE WISCONSIN BORDER . . . SMALL NEIGHBORHOOD WRIGLEY FIELD BAR CALLED WEAGMAN’S PARK WITH ONLY WISCONSIN BEER AND SHEBOYGAN BRATS - A 20 SOMETHING HANGOUT. FOLLOW THE HISTORY OF THE CUBS, BEARS AND BULLS AS SEEN THROUGH THE EYES OF JOSH, ELLIOT, SAM, KERI, MELANIE AND FRIENDS . . .. JOSH HEY WILL - LONG TIME NO SEE - DIDN’T ALL THE BRAGGING ABOUT THE CUBS PAY OFF. WILL YOU ARE PERFECT JOSH - THE CUBBIES ARE IN FIRST PLACE AND I BET THEY ABSOLUTELY STAY THERE FOR THE REst OF THE SEASON. JOSH HEY - NOT ONLY THAT - THOUGH WE MAY HAVE SOME INJURIES - LIKE WOOD AND SORIANO CAN NEVER STAY HEALTHY - WE WILL STILL BE IN THE BATTLE FOR THE NL CHAMPIONSHIP AND SERIES. WILL YOU ARE PERFECT - JUST WHAT I WANTED TO HEAR - YEARS OF STRUGGLE WILL COME TO AN END THIS YEAR. THE FANS WILL BE REWARDED. JOSH I’M REAL EXCITED. THINGS COULDN’T GET ANY BETTER AROUND WRIGLEYVILLE. WILL WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO THAT BORDER GIRL WHO INVITED YOU UP TO THE LAKE - YOU KNOW THE RIPON GIRL - YOU KNOW HER PARENTS WERE FROM MILWAUKEE - WHITEFISH BAY ? JOSH OH YES - SHE BOMBED OUT. I CALLED FOR DIRECTIONS BACK INTO THE LAKE BY THE DELLS....AND WELL SHE SAID SHE HAD SECOND THOUGHTS ABOUT ME. WILL SHE WAS PROBABLY CRAZY ! 2


JOSH NO - I THINK SHE PROBABLY FELL IN LOVE WITH SOME OTHER GUY. WHAT DID KERI THINK ? WILL I DON’T KNOW - I HAVEN’T SEEN HER AROUND. KERI I HEARD ALL THAT - IF YOU GUYS ACTUALLY KNEW WHAT WAS GOING ON AT THE DELLS - IT’S BEEN ON NATIONAL TV ? WILL WHAT DO YOU MEAN ? DELLS NATIONAL TV ? KERI THE FLOODS - DUMBO - LAKE DELTON WAS SWAMPED BY THE DAM BREAKING. JOSH YOU MEAN ALL OF CHICAGO IS SAVED BECAUSE THEY DON’T HAVE TO GO THERE NOW ! KERI RIGHT - NOW THEY’LL PROBABLY JUST GO TO........... MICHIGAN OR INDIANA OR... WILL I KNOW - GREEN LAKE BY RIPON - I HAD TO GO THERE YEARS AGO. JOSH RIPON IS WHERE THIS WHITEFISH BAY GODDESS GOES TO SCHOOL. SHE MENTIONED PARTIES AT GREEN LAKE. WILL ALL I REMEMBER IS THAT IT WAS THE DEEPEST LAKE IN WISCONSIN LIKE 300 FEET. KERI THEN IT’S PROBABLY COLD - A GOOD PLACE FOR MELANIE TO HANG OUT. JOSH SHE STILL RUBS YOU WRONG DOESN’T SHE ! KERI ONLY 500 % OF THE TIME = SHE’LL NEVER LEAVE SAM ALONE - EVEN AFTER WE MARRY. WILL YOU ARE GETTING MARRIED KERI ?

3


KERI WELL - WE’RE STARTING TO LOOK AT RINGS. JOSH WOW - HAVE YOU BOUGHT YOUR DOG YET - ALL YOUNG COUPLES BUY DOGS BEFORE KIDS COME ? KERI WE TALKED ABOUT IT - BUT WE’RE BOTH NEVER HOME. WILL BEEN TO ANY CUBS GAMES RECENTLY ? KERI NO - SAM HAS BEEN WAY TOO BUSY. JOSH IS SAM STILL TALKING DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS OR PEACE CORPS OR........... KERI I REALLY DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT. I MEAN IT IS A SPEAR IN OUR RELATIONSHIP. JOSH OK WE WON’T TALK ABOUT IT - BUT I MUST SAY IT IS ADMIRABLE FOR THIS SUPERSTAR ANESTHESIA GUY TO NOT STAY ON THE GOLD COAST HERE AND MAKE MEGABUCKS - AND INSTEAD TAKE CARE OF THE POOR AND NEEDY. WILL I AGREE - WE SHOULD ALL BE DOING WHAT SAM IS TALKING ABOUT THERE WOULD BE MUCH LESS STRIFE IN THIS WORLD BECAUSE OF THIS GOOD WILL. KERI I’M SORRY GUYS - AS MUCH AS I SEE OF NEED IN THIS WORLD - THERE IS JUST AS MUCH NEED IN THE US. JOSH WELL YOU COULD GO WITH SAM. IT WOULD BE A GOOD THING FOR BOTH OF YOU. KERI YOU DON’T GET IT - NEITHER OF US HAS MONEY, SAM HAS LOANS WHICH ARE OUTSTANDING - WE CAN HARDLY PAY THE RENT - I SAY DO THIS STUFF LATER AFTER YOU’RE ESTABLISHED AND HAVE YOUR FEET ON THE GROUND. WILL ARE YOU REALLY EVER ESTABLISHED ? IS ANYTHING SO SECURE ANYMORE ? 4


JOSH NO - IT IS NOT - YOU KNOW THAT KERI. KERI AGAIN YOU GUYS ARE JUST REBELLIOUS - HECK SAM COULD HAVE HIS PICK OF HOSPITAL ANESTHESIA GROUPS IN THIS TOWN IF HE WANTED OR ANYWHERE ELSE. WILL LIKE ROCKFORD ! KERI WE ARE NOT MOVING TO ROCKFORD ! WILL OK - BUT I GET WHAT YOU MEAN - MAYBE THE ANESTHESIA GROUP WOULD SPOT YOU SOME MONEY TO DO THIS HEART WARMING MEDICAL STINT. KERI WE’VE ALREADY BEEN THROUGH THIS - NO GROUP OF MATERIALISTIC DOCTORS IS PAYING SAM TO DIG DITCHES IN AFRICA. I KNOW THIS. IN FACT WHEN SAM TOLD ONE OF THE ANESTHESIA GROUP’S PRESIDENT ABOUT HIS NEED TO BE A STEWARD OF THE PROFESSION AND THE UNITED STATES - WELL HE JUST LAUGHED. JOSH WELL MOST OF THESE DOCTOR GUYS GET CAUGHT UP IN WHAT EVERYBODY ELSE IN OUR CULTURE IS CAUGHT UP IN - JUST PLAIN MONEY - MONEY JUSTIFIES ANY BEHAVIOR OR MEANS TO GET TO THIS END. I SAW THAT IN MANY ATTORNEYS AT THE U OF CHICAGO FROM PRIVATE PRACTICE. KERI I’M SORRY YOU GUYS - THIS IS THE REAL WORLD - I WANT A DIAMOND RING, KIDS, MINIVAN, CHURCH, CUBS AND BEAR TICKETS, AND A SETTLED LIFE. I DON’T WANT DEBT, CARDBOARD HOUSE, STRAINED SOUP, AND CHOLERA. WILL WELL MAYBE HE’S NOT THE GUY FOR YOU THEN KERI - I’M JUST BEING HONEST. JOSH YES - MAYBE YOU SHOULD NOT HAVE MOVED IN TOGETHER UNTIL YOU WERE MARRIED. REMEMBER OUR HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR CATHOLIC RELIGIOUS CLASSES TAUGHT US THIS - THE DIVORCE RATE IS MUCH HIGHER WITH COUPLES THAT MOVE IN TOGETHER WITHOUT MAKING COMMITMENTS TO EACH OTHER. KERI YEA I KNEW THAT GOING IN - BUT HE INSISTED. 5


WILL MOST GUYS WOULD INSIST ON THIS ADVANTAGEOUS RELATIONSHIP. THEN THEY DRAG THEIR FEET ON MARRIAGE. KERI PRECISELY - BUT WHAT DO I DO NOW - I’M COMMITTED WITH THE MOVE. JOSH WELL REMEMBER THE SHARK INFESTED WATER TEST FOR GUYS ? KERI OH RIGHT - MAKE SAM SWIM UPSTREAM AMIDST SHARK INFESTED WATERS TO GIVE ME A LEMONADE. RIGHT ! JOSH IT’S THE ONLY WAY - YOUR RELATIONSHIP WILL NEVER WORK UNLESS YOU MAKE HIM PROVE TO YOU THAT HE IS WORTHY AND REALLY WANTS THIS RELATIONSHIP. KERI SO I MOVE OUT, UPSET HIM, WAIT FOR HIM TO CALL ME BACK, AND INCUR TWO MOVING TRUCK COSTS - I HAVE A TON OF STUFF. WILL PRECISELY - THAT MIGHT MAKE HIM REALIZE WITH MORE COSTS HE BETTER GET A REAL JOB HERE IN CHICAGO... JOSH OR ROCKFORD ! KERI YES - SAM CAN JUST DO HIS DUTIFUL ASSISTANCE TO THE POOR IN THIS AREA - CHICAGO, ROCKFORD, DEKALB - IT DOESN’T MATTER. WILL REMEMBER SAM TALKING ABOUT THAT ONE RESIDENT WHO WAS IN THE LIVE IN RELATIONSHIP AND...... KERI AND HE CAME HOME ONE EVENING AFTER CALL, VERY TIRED, AND THE HOUSE WAS LOCKED. HE THEN CLIMBED IN THE BACK DOOR AND NOTICED THE HOUSE WAS TOTALLY EMPTY - ZERO. WILL THEN HIS NEIGHBOR CAME OVER AND TOLD HIM THERE WAS A LARGE MOVING TRUCK HERE ALL DAY. JOSH YOU MEAN THE GUY DIDN’T KNOW WHERE HIS CLOTHES, PERSONALS, FURNITURE, OR ANYTHING WAS ?

6


KERI TOTALLY - THE GUY HAD ON DIRTY BLOODY SCRUBS AND AND NOW HAD ZERO BELONGINGS. WILL YES THIS RESIDENT WENT INTO A EMOTIONAL TAILSPIN - NO MONEY, NO CLOTHES, NO SUPPORT SYSTEM, NOTHING. JOSH ALL BECAUSE OF THIS LIVE IN ADVANTAGEOUS RELATIONSHIP WITHOUT COMMITMENT - SOME WOULD SAY HE DESERVED IT - BECAUSE HE PROBABLY WOULD HAVE DITCHED THE GAL AFTER THE RESIDENCY, AVOIDED ILLINOIS ALIMONY, AND WENT ONTO A LIFE UP THE COAST IN WHITEFISH BAY. WILL OR HE WOULD’VE DIVORCED HER AFTER A COUPLE KIDS FOR A MELANIE TYPE. KERI YES GUYS CAN BE ABSOLUTE CREEPS. JOSH NOT CUB GUYS THOUGH - HECK LOOK AT WHAT WE’VE DONE PRODUCTION IN EVERY CATEGORY - HITTING, FIELDING, RELIEF AND STARTING PITCHING. WILL EVEN KERRY WOOD IS GETTING US TO WIN GAMES - WHO SAID HE COULDN’T RELIEVE. KERI ALL I EVER HEAR ABOUT IS THE LONG WIN STREAKS - HMMMMM....WHAT 9 IN A ROW. JOSH AND DEMPSTER CANNOT BE BEAT AT WRIGLEY. AND.............. WILL WAIT A SECOND JOSH, THIS GUY OVER HERE WANTS ANOTHER LEINE’S AMBER ON TAP. JOSH GOT IT. HE IS BEGINNING TO BE A REGULAR CUSTOMER. COMES IN AFTER A MANY GAMES AND IS VERY FRIENDLY. KERI THAT’S WHAT WE WANT - KEEP JOSH’S BUSINESS MODEL GOING HERE - DISPUTING ALL OF THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO’S THEORIES ABOUT BUSINESS.

7


JOSH NO NOT REALLY - WITH THE CUBS A HALF BLOCK AWAY AND SO MUCH INTEREST THROUGHOUT THE MIDWEST - EVEN IN WISCONSIN WHERE FANS ARE SO LOYAL TO THEIR TEAMS - WE STILL DO WELL. WILL BUT AGAIN THE CUBS MUST KEEP IT UP - GUYS LIKE SOTO MUST CONTINUE TO CATCH SHUTOUTS AND PLAY WELL. MILWAUKEE AND ST. LOUIS WILL BE RIGHT ON OUR TAILS. JOSH I’M NOT SO WORRIED ABOUT ST. LOUIS - BUT MILWAUKEE - THEY HAVE THE HORSES, AND THERE IS TALK ABOUT SABATHIA FROM CLEVELAND COMING OVER TO THE BREWERS. KERI EVEN WITH THE JERSEY BOYS SINGING AT WRIGLEY - IT DOESN’T GUARANTEE A NL OR WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONSHIP RING. WILL WELL WITH Z BEING THE BIG LEADER AND ALL STARS IN SORIANO, FUKUDOME, AND Z - WE SHOULD BE IN GOOD SHAPE. KERI DEREK MUST HIT BETTER - HE IS A GREAT ATHLETE AND A BIG KEY - HE CANNOT RELY ON THERIOT, REED JOHNSON, DEROSA, RAMIREZ AND ALL THE OTHERS TO CARRY HIS LOAD. JOSH IF WE BREAK EVEN WHILE SORIANO IS OUT WITH A WRIST FRACTURE HEALING, I’LL FEEL GOOD. WILL THAT WOULD PREVENT THE BREWERS AND CARDINALS FROM GAINING GROUND ON US PROBABLY - UNLESS THEY WENT ON A REAL TEAR. KERI WELL I SEE LOU GETTING REAL GRUMPY BEFORE THE SEASON IS OVER IT’S ALMOST LIKE HE’S ON DRUGS AND ENJOYING THE RIDE. WILL WAIT A SECOND JOSH - THIS GROUP BACK HERE WANTS SOME WEIRD ZUERCHER’S CHEESE I’VE NEVER HEARD OF. JOSH WE JUST CARRY THE MAIN LINES FOR SANDWICHES AND PLATES - THEY HAVE MULTIPLE VARIETIES EMULATING DIFFERENT EUROPEAN CHEESES. KERI SO WHAT DO YOU DO FOR THEM - WE HAVE AN ARRANGEMENT - WE REFER THEM UP TO SKOKIE AND WEEGHMANS’ PARK GETS A GREAT

8


RATE ON CHEESE PURCHASES. IT’S GOOD PR FOR BOTH PARTIES SINCE THEY PROMOTE WEAGHMAN’S’s PARK ALSO. WILL WOULDN’T IT BE SOMETHING IF LOU CAME HERE SOME NIGHT. JOSH NEVER CAN HAPPEN WILL - I THINK THEY CONTRACT NOT TO HANG OUT iN BARS AND STUFF ON CLARK STREET - FEARING THAT ALL KINDS OF ARTICLES WOULD APPEAR. HECK I’M JUST HAPPY FOR LOU - AS HE MAY HAVE FOUND A HOME IN BASEBALL WITH THE CUBS. HE’S ACTUALLY GLAD THE TAMPA BAY RAYS ARE DOING WELL THIS YEAR. WILL MY GOD - HE REALLY STRUGGLED WITH THAT TEAM OVER MANY YEARS. BUT HE WAS QUITE SUCCESSFUL AS A MANAGER AND PLAYER ELSEWHERE. KERI THE MOST IMPORTANT FACT IS THAT WITH LOU WE WERE 19 GAMES BETTER IN 2007 THAN 2006 - THAT IS BIG - AND WON OUR DIVISION. JOSH YES - WE WERE 8.5 GAMES OUT - BEHIND MILWAUKEE JUNE 23, 2007 AND WE CLIMBED BACK INTO IT WITH THE LEAD AUGUST 17TH - WITH THE BREWER’S HELP. WILL I DON’T THINK MILWAUKEE WILL FOLD THIS YEAR THOUGH - I’M FEELING THEY WILL BE WILD CARD MATERIAL AND WE MAY HAVE TO FACE THESE GUYS IN OCTOBER. KERI LOU WILL HAVE OUR TEAM PREPARED AND RESTED - IN FACT EVEN THOUGH IT’S EARLY, HE IS GIVING DAYS OFF AND PLAYING LOTS OF PLAYERS. WILL LOU IS 4TH AMONG ACTIVE MANGERS WITH WINS INCLUDING LARUSSA, COX, AND TORRE. KERI ANYONE COULD WIN WITH TORRE’S PLAYERS HE’S HAD FOR YEARS - HE HAS THE BEST MONEY CAN BUY IN NEW YORK PREVIOUSLY, AND NOW LA. IT’S A JOKE. WILL BUT THE YANKS DON’T WIN IT EVERY YEAR - IN FACT I FEEL TEAMS PLAY a lot harder AGAINST THESE GUYS.

9


JOSH WELL THE CUBS HAVE THE PLAYERS, A TWO TIME MANAGER OF THE YEAR IN LOU, AND THE VERY BEST FANS - SELL OUT AFTER SELL OUT. KERI I FEEL LOU AND HIS FAMILY WILL EVENTUALLY MAKE CHICAGO HOME. DID YOU KNOW LOU PLAYED LITTLE LEAGUE AGAINST LARUSSA IN TAMPA - AMAZING - IT IS SUCH A SMALL WORLD. JOSH WELL LOU HAS MANAGED NEW YORK, CINCY, SEATTLE, AND TAMPA BAY PRIOR TO THE CUBS. IN 1991 LOU WON THE WORLD SERIES WITH CINCY KERI I READ WHERE LOU WAS A .291 LIFETIME HITTER, WAS IN TOP 10 OF AL BATTING 4 TIMES, AND BATTED 305 IN POST SEASON PLAY - NOT BAD. JOSH HE WAS A DECENT 3RD BASEMAN ALSO - HE IS THE GUY THE CUBS REALLY NEEDED AND GAVE OUR TEAM A BIG JOLT - UNLEASHING OUR TALENT IN MANY WAYS. KERI MAN - IF LOU CAN BRING A WORLD SERIES WIN TO CHICAGO - HE’LL WIN THE MAYOR’S RACE FOR SURE IF HE RUNS - 100 YEAR DROUGHT BACK TO 1908. WILL MORE LEINE’S BACK IN THE CORNER JOSH. YOU ACTUALLY COULD USE A FEW WAITERS - MAYBE WE SHOULD APPLY. JOSH WELL MOST PATRONS JUST COME UP TO REFILL IF THEY WANT AND PAY WHEN THEY LEAVE - AGAIN MOST PEOPLE ARE VERY HONEST - AND WE ARE MAKING GOOD MONEY HERE AT WEEGHMAN’S PARK. WE AREN’T ABOUT TO CHANGE THE BUSINESS MODEL AND RAMP UP EVERYTHING. WILL SO NO EXPANSION FOR WEAGHMAN’S PARK FOR NOW ? JOSH RIGHT - EVERYBODY AROUND CLARK AND ADDISON - AND EVEN WAVELAND HAS THEIR NICHE OF PATRONS. LIKE THE SMART BAR - WE COULDN’T COMPETE WITH THOSE GUYS. KERI THEY ARE SUCH A JOKE - EVERYONE STILL THINKS THEY GET A BOOST BY GOING THERE - AS IF THEY ARE SMARTER BY GOING IN. JOSH I EVEN LIKE THEIR BUSINESS MODEL. IT WORKS FOR THEM AND THAT IS WHAT COUNTS. 10


WILL BACK TO BASEBALL - I EVEN FEEL WE HAVE SUPERB ASSISTANT MANAGERS THIS YEAR - EVEN BETTER THAN O7. KERI LIKE DEJESUS, ALAN TRAMMEL, GERALD PERRY, QUADE, ROTHSCHILD, STRODE, AND SINATRO - ALL GREAT BASEBALL FUNDAMENTALISTS AND PLAYERS. JOSH DEJESUS HAS COME A LONG WAY - HE STARTED MANAGING WITH KISSIMMEE IN 1990 - GULF COAST LEAGUE. KERI BETTER YET AS WE WERE JUST THOUGHTS - HE PLAYED WONDERFUL INFIELD FOR THE CUBS IN THE 70S. WILL AND LOOK AT PERRY AS A HITTING COACH - HE WAS A HITTING TERROR AS A PLAYER WITH ATLANTA. JOSH PERRY HAS BEEN AROUND - IN FACT I REMEMBER READING HIS COACHING HELPED PITTSBURGH CLIMB 23 BATTING POINTS IN ONE YEAR - THAT’S IMPRESSIVE. KERI I FEEL HE HAS PAID OFF BIG FOR THE CUBBIES AS WE ARE GETTING BIG KEY HITS - HAVING BIG INNINGS - AND BY HITTING, ADDING TO LEADS THIS YEAR. WILL QUADE HAS BEEN BIG WITH ARAMIS AT THIRD - QUADE HAD A VERY SUCCESSFUL MINOR LEAGUE CAREER AS MANAGER AND PLAYER. HE WAS A GOOD COACHING FIT FOR THE CUBS. JOSH I FEEL OUR BIGGEST IMPROVEMENT HAS BEEN WITH ROTHSCHILD AS PITCHING COACH SINCE 2002 IN CHICAGO. KERI YES - YOU WIN WITH PITCHING - ALWAYS - AND OUR PITCHERS HAVE PERFORMED very well THIS YEAR. HECK ROTHSCHILD WAS BORN IN CHICAGO - BUT LIKE LOU LIVES IN TAMPA - HE’S ANOTHER ONE THAT SHOULD MOVE TO WRIGLEYVILLE. WILL BUT KERI YOU KNOW HOW FICKLE MANAGERS JOBS ARE. YOU CAN ACTUALLY DO KIND OF GOOD OR OK - OR IN FACT WIN - AND THEY STILL LET YOU GO.

11


JOSH LIKE JOE TORRE OF THE YANKS KERI IT WAS TIME FOR A CHANGE THERE. WILL AND I DON’T FEEL IT WILL WORK WITH A DIFFERENT coach IN NEW YORK. JOSH AND SINATRO HAS FOLLOWED LOU WHEREVER HE GOES - BEING IN SEATTLE AND TAMPA BAY WITH LOU. KERI HE HAS REALLY HELPED DEREK AT FIRST - NOW DEREK IS PRACTICALLY A GOLD GLOVER ROUTINELY. JOSH AND STRODE AS BULLPEN COACH HAS MADE OUR BULLPEN THE VERY BEST IN BASEBALL. HE’S BEEN WITH THE CUBS FOR 20 PLUS YEARS. AMAZING - HE MUST BE GOOD IF LOU AND MANAGEMENT KEEP HIM YEAR AFTER YEAR. WILL AND YOU CANNOT SAY ENOUGH ABOUT ALAN TRAMMEL - THE FACE OF THE DETROIT TIGERS FOR YEARS - A TRULY GREAT PLAYER. I HOPE HE CAN TRANSFER THAT TO COACHING. JOSH SIX GOLD GLOVE AWARDS, WORLD SERIES WIN IN 1984 AS MVP, AND PLAYED 20 YEARS FOR THE TIGERS LIKE KALINE AND COBB. KERI SOME GUYS CANNOT TRANSFER THEIR PLAYING INTENSITY AND SKILLS TO COACHING - MAYBE TRAMMEL WILL - AS HE WAS A SUPERB FIELDER AND HITTER. WILL AND A TEAM GUY - UNSELFISH - THIS IS WHAT OTHERS SAY ABOUT TRAMMEL - THIS WILL HELP THE CUBS BECAUSE IT DOES TAKE A VILLAGE TO WIN A SERIES. JOSH WHAT TIME IS SAM COMING OVER ? KERI I REALLY DON’T KNOW - AFTER TALKING TO YOU GUYS - IT SOUNDS LIKE I SHOULD LEAVE HIM AND SEE IF HE COMES RUNNING.

12


JOSH NO - DON’T DO THAT - JUST HAVE A HEART TO HEART TALK - IF YOU TWO DON’T SEE EYE TO EYE ON KEY ISSUES - WELL THEN YOU MIGHT NOT WANT TO GET MARRIED. KERI LOOK I DON’T WANT TO LIVE WITH A GUY FOR A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT OF TIME AND THEN GET DUMPED. WILL JOSH’S RIGHT KERI - SAM AND YOU REALLY NEED TO SETTLE IN AND DISCUSS ALL THESE ISSUES - IT’S WHAT THE CATHOLIC DIOCESE REQUIRES YOU TO DO, AND THEY WILL TELL YOU NOT TO MARRY IF YOU DON’T PASS OR RESOLVE DIFFERENCES AS A COUPLE. KERI LIKE ONE MEMBER WANTING 5 KIDS AND THE OTHER ZERO. JOSH RIGHT - YOU’D BE SURPRISED AT HOW MANY COUPLES NEVER TALK ABOUT THIS STUFF. WILL THE GAL FROM NORTHERN AND MYSELF ACTUALLY WENT TO ONE SESSION - TESTING IT OUT - AND.......... KERI THERE WERE BIG DIFFERENCES - RIGHT ? WILL ACTUALLY NOT - THE ONLY DIFFERENCE WAS MY POTENTIAL MOTHER IN LAW - IF SHE DOESN’T LIKE YOU - WELL YOU WON’T GET MARRIED. JOSH WHAT ABOUT THE CUTE GALS ON THE L THAT WORKS FOR THE AIRLINES ? WILL WE JUST DIDN’T HIT IT OFF. SHE WAS REALLY QUIET AND SECRETIVE - I JUST THOUGHT THAT MEANT SHE DIDN’T LIKE ME... SO I NEVER CALLED HER BACK. I’M FREE LIKE YOU JOSH. KERI NO JOSH HAS...LET ME SEE...........MELANIE. JOSH NO - WE’RE JUST GOOD FRIENDS - IF YOU WERE A GUY KERI YOU’D ACTUALLY LIKE MELANIE. KERI NO I WOULD NEVER LIKE THAT SNOBBY YOU KNOW WHAT. I’LL ADMIT SHE IS GOOD LOOKING, CUTE, AND NOT DULL - BUT SHE REALLY GRINDS ME WRONG. 13


WILL GUYS LOOK AT GIRLS DIFFERENT THAN GIRLS LOOKING AT THEM KERI MUCH DIFFERENT. KERI GUYS SHOULD FIND AS GIRLS go THAT MELANIE IS TOTALLY INTOLERABLE - DESPICABLE. JOSH WELL MELANIE HAS THIS AURA OF ATTRACTIVENESS ABOUT HER THAT.... KERI PLEASE JOSH - GIVE ME A BREAK - THAT IS SICK. WILL WE COULD COMPARE IT TO ONE OF THE YOUNG SINGLE CUBS - LIKE..... KERI JEFF SAMARDZIJA - THE BIGGEST HUNK ON THE CUBS. WILL WHY DO YOU SAY THAT - HE HASN’T DONE MUCH. KERI LOOK GUYS SAMARDZIJA WAS AN ALL AMERICAN FOOTBALL PLAYER AT NOTRE DAME DOWN THE ROAD, HE LED THE IRISH IN ALL TIME RECEPTIONS, PITCHED WELL FOR THEM, AND PLAYED WELL FOR SINGLE A DAYTONA AND DOUBLE A TENNESSEE LAST YEAR. JOSH OH YES - HE WAS ON RYNO’S TEAM IN 2006 DOWN IN PEORIA - THE SINGLE A CHIEFS AND PLAYED FOR THE IOWA CUBS LAST SEASON SOME IN FACT VERY WELL. WILL SOUNDS LIKE HE’S BEEN EVERYWHERE WITH THE CUBS EXCEPT BOISE AND THE CARIBBEAN LEAGUE. KERI ALL I KNOW IS THAT HE’S SINGLE, ON THE ROSTER THIS YEAR, AND MOST GALS WOULD DROOL OVER THIS GUY. WILL AGAIN KERI - WE’RE GUYS AND WE CAN’T IN THE LEAST TELL IF A GUY IS LIKE A 10. JOSH YES KERI - THAT IS SUBJECTIVE STUFF - YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY A QB CHASING GAL. KERI I RESENT THAT ! 14


WILL WELL IT’S TRUE KERI - FIRST THE ILLINI QUARTERBACK - NOW SAM AND YOUR DREAMS ABOUT SAMARDZIJA. KERI SAMARDZIJI CAUGHT FOOTBALLS - DIDN’T THROW THEM. BESIDES THIS WILL BE HIS FIRST YEAR AT WRIGLEY - I’M CERTAIN HE’S NOT FULL OF MONEY - NOT YET ANYWAY. HE MUST PRODUCE. WILL HE HASN’T EVEN BEEN IN ANY GAMES YET THIS YEAR. WE MAY NEVER KNOW HOW GOOD THIS GUY IS. KERI HE MAY BE THE NEXT COMING OF KERRY WOOD - HE IS 6 - 5 AND ABOUT 225 - GOOD SIZE. AND CUTE LIKE WOOD. JOSH MY GOD KERI - THE CUBS JUST WANT TO WIN - NOT HAVE A BEAUTY CONTEST. KERI WELL GIRLS JUST DON’T STARE AT THE SCOREBOARD AT THE GAMES THEY ACTUALLY LOOK AT THE GUYS IF THEY HAVE GOOD SEATS. JOSH ALL I KNOW ABOUT SAMARDZIJI IS THAT HIS STOCK WENT DOWN BECAUSE HE PLAYED FOOTBALL AND BASEBALL FOR NOTRE DAME. WILL JOHN ELWAY PLAYED EVERYTHING AND SOME FELT SO SO AT ALL SPORTS. LOOK WHERE HE ENDED UP - ONLY 2 SUPER BOWL WINS. JOSH I THINK IT’S BECAUSE YOU REALLY DON’T KNOW THESE GUYS - FROM A SCOUT’S PERSPECTIVE - IT’S A GUT FEELING. KERI YES - GUYS FROM LITTLE TINY SCHOOLS AND TEAMS MAY END UP BEING THE BEST EVER IF GIVEN THE CHANCE - LIKE JERRY RICE OR DENNIS RODMAN - SMALL SCHOOL GUYS. JOSH YES I AGREE THOUGH SAMARDZIJI’S STOCK WENT DOWN - HE IS STILL A HECK OF AN ATHLETE - AND THIS IS WHAT THE CUBS WILL NEED DOWN THE STRETCH. WILL SAM THINKS THE CUBS REAL CHANCES LIE WITH PITCHING - BECAUSE WE HAVE THE BATS NOW. GUYS LIKE REED JOHNSON COMING OFF THE BENCH AND POUNDING THE BALL.

15


JOSH YES - LOU HAS TAKEN CARE OF THE HITTING. IT’S A LITTLE FIELDING BLUNDERS AND MAYBE SOME BULLPEN WOES HERE AND THERE. OUR STARTERS HAVE BEEN SOLID FROM Z ON DOWN. KERI WE JUST CANNOT FALL APART IN THE PLAYOFFS LIKE LAST YEAR. JOSH OUR DEFICIENCIES WERE REALLY EXPLOITED BY SAN DIEGO - AND THEY WEREN’T REALLY A VERY GOOD TEAM. KERI ALL CYLINDERS ARE ON GO FOR THE CUBS THIS YEAR. HEY JOSH THIS GAL WANTS A SUMMER SHANDY - DO YOU GUYS CARRY THIS STUFF AT WEAGHMAN’S PARK ? JOSH WE’VE GOT A LITTLE OF EVERYTHING IN THE BACK DUE TO DEMAND EVEN THE SEASONALS. SOON FOLKS WILL BE ASKING FOR OCTOBERFEST - THE FALL LEINENKUGEL BEER. WILL BUT FOR NOW IT’S MAINLY THE ORIGINAL FORM CHIPPEWA FALLS - AND SOME HONEY AND BERRY WEISS. JUST ASK JOSH - THE EXPERT. KERI SO YOU NEED TO GET HER THE SUMMER SHANDY - LIKE REAL SOON - SHE LOOKS TROUBLED. JOSH WE’RE ALL TROUBLED AT SOME TIME KERI - EVEN YOU. KERI I WILL RESOLVE ALL THIS STUFF WITH SAM - IT WILL GO ONE WAY OR THE OTHER. WILL I SURE HOPE SO, AS I DON’T WANT TO HEAR YOU IN THE SAME SITUATION A YEAR FROM NOW. KERI NO - SAM AND I WILL MOVE ON - ALL YOUNG DOCTORS THINK THEY WILL SAVE THE WORLD - AND MANY YOUNG ANESTHESIOLOGISTS ARE JUST FLAT OUT POMPOUS. IT TAKES A FEW HARD CASES AND MAYBE - LET’S HOPE NOT - BUT A LAWSUIT TO SETTLE SOME OF THEM DOWN I’VE HEARD. WILL I DON’T SEE SAM AS POMPOUS - HE’S JUST CONFIDENT AND THAT IS WHAT THE SURGEON, NURSES, AND PATIENTS NEED. THEY DON’T WANT

16


A TREMBLING NUT BACK THERE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT TO DO. I KNOW THAT MUCH. KERI YOU’RE RIGHT ON THAT. SAM IS CONFIDENT AND SOMEONE LIKE HIM IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT FOR AN ANESTHESIOLOGIST. JUST CONVINCE HIM THAT WE COULD USE HIM IN CHICAGO. WILL I THINK SAM WILL COME AROUND AND TAKE A CONVENTIONAL JOB IN THE AREA - HE SHOULD JUST WORK PRN FOR DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS ON MISSION TRIPS - LOTS OF DOCS DO THIS ACCORDING TO THE TRIBUNE - YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE A MOTHER TERESA 24/7. JOSH SAM WILL COME THROUGH KERI - HE PROBABLY LIKES it THAT YOU HANG WITH US AND LIKE SPORTS. KERI THERE’re TIMES I FEEL WE NEED TO GET OUT OF TOWN BECAUSE OF MELANIE - SHE’LL BE CHASING HIM INTO HIS 90S. SHE’S SUCH A .......... JOSH SHE MAY JUST FOLLOW YOU TO THE NEXT TOWN. SO YOU CAN’T RUN FROM HER. KERI I KNOW ALL THAT - I GUESS WE ALL HAVE TO DEAL WITH STUFF - I STILL MAY SOMEDAY POISON HER. WILL I WOULDN’T SAY THAT about MELANIE BECAUSE HECK SHE MAY BE POISONED SOME DAY - AND YOUR WORDS MAY BE USED AS EVIDENCE AGAINST YOU. JOSH YES EVEN THOUGH IT MAY BE HEARSAY - THESE WORDS OF INTENT ARE ADMISSIBLE REBUTTABLE PRESUMPTIVE EVIDENCE OF THE INTENT TO POISON. KERI OK GUYS I GET THE POINT - SHUT UP - I WAS ONLY HALF SERIOUS. WILL WELL IF MELANIE IS WHAT SHE SAYS SHE IS - SHE PROBABLY RUBS SOME OTHER GALS THE WRONG WAY too. JOSH keri - I JUST FEEL THAT MELANIE AND YOU NEED TO BECOME FRIENDS - SHE’S NOT GOING AWAY AND YOU JUST NEED TO DEAL WITH HER. MAYBE SHE’LL END UP THE GAL WHO FINDS PRINCE CHARMING AND RUNS UP THE COAST TO WHITEFISH BAY. 17


WILL WELL IF SAM DOESN’T WORK OUT - KERI THERE IS ALWAYS SAMARDZIJI. KERI I’M SURE HE HAS A GIRLFRIEND - OR MAYBE EVEN MARRIED BY NOW. HE DOESN’T GET MUCH PRESS BECAUSE HE ISN’T IN THERE YET. JOSH BUT HE WILL BE - THE CUBS WILL NEED HIM DOWN THE STRETCH BECAUSE SOME ARMS STATISTICALLY WILL WEAR DOWN AND WE NEED MORE FRESH ARMS FOR THE PLAYOFFS. WILL YES - SAMARDZIJI WILL OVERPOWER SOME BATTERS LIKE WOOD - HIS SIZE IS IMPRESSIVE. BIGGER THAN DEREK. JOSH I FULLY AGREE - AND I’M GETTING MORE SUMMER SHANDY FOR THIS GAL. SHE NEEDS PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION HOME OR A DESIGNATED DRIVER FROM HER GROUP. WILL MOST FOLKS IN HERE DO THAT. I DON’T SEE MANY OVER IMBIBERS IN WEEGHMAN’S PARK LIKE - WELL SOME OTHER PLACES DOWN WAVELAND. JOSH FOLKS COME IN HERE FOR THE WISCONSIN THEME, THE ZUERCHER CHEESE THAT ORIGINATED IN GREEN COUNTY WISCONSIN, THE CHIPPEWA FALLS BEER, AND JUST A DIFFERENT PLACE TO GO AROUND WRIGLEY. IT WORKS. WILL THAT GUY IN THE BACK WITH THE PLATTEVILLE JACKET ON WANTS AN ORIGINAL JOSH. JOSH GREAT - COMING UP. OH MY GOD - HERE COMES SAM - AND MELANIE A FEW FEET BEHIND HIM.

END - eipsode XII, clark & addison
