Rub a Dub Dub: Chicago Cubs = Chicago Flubs

chicago flubs.jpgI didn’t say it first.  No.  The Chicago Sun-Times did.

But it’s true nonetheless.

I would say I’m sorry, but I’m not, so I won’t; because when you jinx yourself by promoting a book touting that This Is the Year before you’ve even played a playoff game, boo your own players on a consistent basis and attempt to assault members of the opposing team with baseballs from the left field bleachers, you deserve to suffer again… and again… and again.

And you will.

Dear readers, you know I’m no dummy, so I won’t be like my oft intellectually-challenged cohort, Mr. Allen Krause, and say this series is over right now because it’s not and it won’t be until the Dodgers win that third game.  I know better than to count a team out before the games have been played, so I won’t; but, indeed, I must disclose the ecstatic nature of my psyche as I witness this ever-growing tension from the most obnoxious fan base is baseball. 

No other baseball team, no other group of fans, no other sports franchise knows how to jump the gun and get excited over absolutely nothing quite like those good old Northsiders.

And that’s why they deserve to find themselves looking like this:

sad cub fans.jpgRecently, my colleague, Mr. Krause, compared me to the vibrant, vivacious, viscous Gov. Sarah Palin.  While it’s easy to see how she and I may have a few things in common (i.e. being a smart dresser, turning heads wherever I go, saying things that some would consider ludicrous like the White Sox might just bounce back and win the World Series) our most fundamental commonality is probably the simple fact that people hate us. 

Look folks, it’s easy for the Cub nation to hate me (and believe me, they do) but unlike hating Sarah Palin, you can’t hate me ‘cuz I’m right.






    THIS IS THE YEAR!!! For White Sox fans everywhere, it’s the the year to enjoy another post-season Cub’s debacle. It’s fantastic!!

    It sure is fantastic, mdaggy! Jeff, you are very much unlike Palin. Very, very much. For one thing, my homework isn’t to take notes on your blog. But rather, I have to take notes on Palin’s stupid phrases and then write reports trying to stretch out her stupid interviews into something more complex. It’s an impossible feat. Complexity is not a part of her tool kit. Why not just assign me to take notes on Lou’s comments after the game 2? 不可能


    (was that Chinese correct?)

    Yes, great job on the Chinese, Aaron and I feel your Palin pain. Mike (that’s gotta be Mike), I am waiting (like you) for the final shoe to drop. We’ll part like it’s 2007 all over again… and 2003 and 1998 and 1989, 1984, 1969 all the way back. Mets, David and Jane, thank you for your undying support. This is the type of community US America needs.


    Well spoken. I am glad to watch their demise. It hurt to see them in the playoffs, but this made up for it by them getting swept out of the first round.
