That Was a Close One

August 23, 2007

I don’t know if I’ve shared the fact that before the luck of the draw made me a Cubs devotee, I had been a fan of the Orioles for the past 15 years.

They got shellacked 30-3 by the Rangers last night.

I’ll be expecting the Cubs to do what it takes to keep me a fan so that no bad juju rubs off of them.  They couldn’t stand another curse.

Giving Credit Where Credit is Due

When I arrived in Chicago, the Cubs trailed the Brewers and the Cardinals were closing fast. Now that I’ve returned from Wrigley, the Small Bears are looking down at the rest of the division. I’m just sayin’…

Yeah, I Know. I Suck.

I haven’t written anything here in forever.  That doesn’t mean I haven’t been avidly following and rooting for our Small Bears.  I’ve just had a lot of other stuff on my plate of late.

No excuse.

But I am headed to the Friendly Confines on Friday for the first time in a decade to watch the Cubs whup up on the Cards and celebrate the 40th birthday of my best friend and Cubs sempai, the DogDoc .

Rumor has it that it might be twenty degrees cooler than here in Nash-hell.  Praise the lord and pass the Old Style!
