Brewers closer John Axford had his streak of 49 consecutive saves snapped Friday night when he blew a game against the Cubs. Axford couldn't talk to reporters about it after the game, however, because his wife (he thought) had gone into labor. To explain his absence to the media, Axford left the awesome note above in his locker. (It turned out later that Axford's wife had not gone into labor.)
