Not a Chicago lightweight

HOY Diaz.jpgChicago native and WBC lightweight champion boxer David Diaz is on the cover of today’s HOY newspaper wearing a Cubs jersey. He’s been sporting Cubby Blue in Las Vegas this week leading up to his pay-per-view fight tomorrow night with Manny Pacquiao.

Diaz threw out a first pitch at Wrigley Field earlier this month, and it’s great to see him give a shoutout to his hometown team before the “biggest fight of [his] life.”

By the way, the headline reads, “I am going to return with my belt.”

Happy Birthday

Daryle Ward turns 33 today, and Jim Edmonds is 38. The two are batting back-to-back in the batting order today against the White Sox.

I’ll be getting some pre-game interviews at U.S. Cellular Field tomorrow for an upcoming issue of Vine Line, so keep your eyes out for a blog tomorrow afternoon.
