The [Monday] Papers
"Carlos Zambrano pitched the first no-hitter for the Chicago Cubs in 36 years, returning from a sore rotator cuff to shut down the Houston Astros 5-0 Sunday night in a game relocated because of Hurricane Ike," AP reports.
"'I guess I'm back!' Zambrano hollered."
Also from the no-hitter files:
- Our very own Jim Coffman writes that his favorite moment of the no-hitter was a pop-up in the eighth. Find out why.
- Cub Factor writer Marty Gangler says Big Z is furious - furiously awesome! He also wonders about hurricanes named after Cubs.

View From Carolina
"So, with less than 10 minutes remaining in the third period and the Bears leading by 14 points, Panthers coach John Fox sent rookie running back Jonathan Stewart into the game."
Stewart is now being described as "Charlotte's New Rock Star."
* "Minnesota has become a battleground in a presidential campaign that has dramatically tightened nationwide. A new Star Tribune Minnesota Poll shows that the race is now a dead heat between Barack Obama and John McCain, each supported by 45 percent of likely voters in the state."
"Sen. Barack Obama's campaign is expected to roll out a new ad today that suggests Sen. John McCain is running a dishonorable campaign."
I will not take the low road like my lying, dishonorable opponent!
It's a bad sign when Stoney calls Harrelson "one of the greatest play-by-play guys doing baseball currently."
Some might even say it's a stretch. Stretch.
Ald. Patrick O'Connor says the actions city council committees take without quoroms are legal as long as no committee member calls for a quorom.
No, really, he says that.
"That's called creating your own reality," says the BGA's Jay Stewart.
