Ch. 7 sent Rafer Weigel to Pittsburgh for the Cubs season opener - on the road - but all they showed was tape of the Sox opener, and it was at home. At least they had a Rizzo HR to feature.
Sorry to go all Hangar on you guys but it seemed pretty annoying to me.
After Rizzo's Opening Day HR, he's having a very bad start to the 2013 season. That said I don't wish Rizzo ill. The only current Cubbie that I can think of that I'd love to see fail is Jeff Samardzija.
