No matter how bad you think you have it …

… there is always SOMEBODY who has it worse. On my bleary-eyed drive from O’Hare to Wrigley Field this morning, I passed a Shell station on Addison. The price for basic unleaded: 4.39/gallon. Just something to think about the next time you’re at a pump in Los Angeles and feeling outraged over paying 4.09/gallon. Actually, never mind. Go ahead and feel outraged. … It’s a beautiful morning at the Friendly Confines, going to be about 78 degrees today, then drop to 55 tomorrow. Wind appears to be blowing left to right. … For those who like to listen to the Spanish-language broadcast, Jaime Jarrin is flying solo for this series. Pepe Yniguez stayed back to attend his daughter’s college graduation and will join us in New York on Thursday. … Speaking of broadcasts, I caught The Bucket List on the redeye last night. I’m sure a lot of you have already seen it, but I thought it was outstanding. Anyway, there is a very brief clip early on from a Dodgers broadcast that Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman are watching in their hospital room. Best I could figure was that it was from 2006. It was Vin Scully calling a base hit to center by a Giants player, Matt Kemp fielding it and throwing home. Actually, it HAD to be ’06, because there was a brief shot of Kemp’s back after the play, and he had no name on the back of his jersey. That was only ’05 and ’06, and Kemp didn’t get here until ’06. … I’m heading down to the itty bitty teenie weenie visiting clubhouse they have here. I’ll check back a little later.
