Blackbird singin in the dead of night.
Take these broken wings and learn to fly,
You were only waiting for this moment to arise. Blackbird fly.
Robin tagged it, sang it at Cody’s birthday party last December and we all tried to remember the lyrics on the golf course the next day. It seems so fitting to nickname the Marlins “Blackbird”. This team plays as one. Everybody contributes to winning. These underdogs have learned to fly. Blackbird fly!
It was Cody’s best game to date hitting an RBI single, a homer and a 3 RBI double in the ninth inning to pull the Marlins ahead 7-4 against the Nat’s to win the game and sweep the series. Cody goes 3-4 today with a walk. single, double, and home run. Ross’ average is up to .256, not bad considering his average last week was below .100. Marlins are now 11-1. The Marlins bullpen is still lights out giving up 0 runs in like 26 innings. Go figure, and I was worried at the start of the season. That’s how much I know. Glad to be wrong. Marlins are on the streak to say the least.
Into the night of the big Blackbird…………..Beatles #1 Marlins #1
