The Crying Game Revisited

As if the world didn’t have enough real problems already: things that make your skin crawl, keep you awake at night, disrupt your thoughts

Let us take a look at who’s crying about nonsensical surface crap today:

So?  Who cares?  You lost the primary.  Get it?  You lost.  That means: you didn’t win.  Why not being chosen as the party’s candidate should make you an automatic lock to be vetted for V.P. is beyond me.  US America already decided that you weren’t the one to represent, so why should you be considered for the position?  Since when does losing make you eligible to be second in command? 

The answer: it doesn’t

Finally, it ain’t all about the benjamins, folks.  The Yankees, the Tigers… they’re not going to make the playoffs this year despite their big fat payrolls.  This makes me extremely happy.  Now you know how it feels — Yankee fans — to be a midwesterner rooting for a small market team.  How you’re feeling right now is how we feel almost every year.  Doesn’t feel very good, does it?  Well, now you know.  Oh… and Tiger fans… you know this feeling all too well; it’s just extra special sad for you this year since you decided to pretend to be the Yankees with your wallets this season.  Whoops.

Look, I get it.  The Cubs are good this year.  They’re really good.  As much as I hate to admit it, you won’t get an argument out of me.  The thing is (and believe me, I know: see St. Louis Cardinals 2004, 2005 as to why): you have to play through August and then September and then the playoffs (NLDS, NLCS, WS) and then you have to win all of those series too to be considered the World Series Champs.  You can’t just go and crown yourselves with six weeks left to play.  My advice to you?  Chill the hell out.  Let the Cardinals and Brewers battle for the Wild Card and just be glad you’ve made it this far because we all know the Cubs — if anything — will always be the Cubs (double meaning intended).

Cry all you want, but don’t hate me ‘cuz I’m right.

    Its a shame all you yankee haters year after year, can only come up with the same thing. A remark about our bank. Just because you live in a rats hole with a poor midwest team doesnt mean anyone else should feel sorry for you. Do us a favor and move. Even if the yankees dont make the playoffs this year is no problem. Because with that big piggy bank, we’ll be right back in the race next year and the year after that. And i dont really know how it feels to be you, but i know one thing…The New York Yankees will always be a contender,and there is no blog that can change that!

    Gee, phunprod2000, thanks for illustrating my point so well with your comment. I couldn’t have asked for much more than that. Keep on cryin’…

    Hey we can’t help it if Yankee gear sells a lot more then any other team… the only reason we got so much money is because everyone contributes to it… Oh maybe 26 world championships may help as well :D… So I wonder, back in the days how did we win so many championships before our bank roll became an issue? It’s funny how that is a popular excuse now. When your team builds a dynasty from the ground up like we did, your team will have money too. Then you can spend like we can. Don’t hate, appreciate.
