If the Cubs Were a Marriage Proposal…

team of destiny cap.jpgAfter writing my poignantly passive piece dedicated to the joys of having the Chicago Cubs as an arch rival, dear readers galore made it very clear that I appear to be dangerously teetering away from the party line of anti-Cubness — that my newfound and lighthearted regard for our despised enemy rendered me anything but a bad@ss.

For that, I apologize.

Weakness was not my goal.  Rejoice in dominance… that was my tune.

But since the sCrUBS are stuck playing the Pirates this week — yes, the effing Pirates, the team the Cubs can’t scrounge a win against — I felt now would be as good a time as any to restate my allegiance… to put the Cubs back where they belong: under my shoe.

So, now I present to you… If the Cubs were a marriage proposal


Make that a double ouch.

Life at the bottom certainly ain’t fun and games, folks.

Hate me ‘cuz I made ya watch that, just don’t hate me ‘cuz I’m right.





  1. The Game Above All

    Just watching the Cubs is depressing. Although they don’t have the Yankees at every turn, those hundred+ years is certainly depressing. And the Zambrano situation? Just embarrassing.

    What can I say but, the Cards were like the guy in the clip, cocky and expecting the best and the chick was like…. Carlos Silva….. was I typing out load then….ooops….

    Sun-ui — I don’t feel sorry for Carlos anymore. He made his bed… and he’s getting paid LOTS of dough for it.
    Peter — Hehe… I thought you wrote “load” on purpose… like that was part of your joke 😉 Guess you’re not as naughty as I thought you were.

    That was a hoax, Jane? Nooooooooooooooooooo! And here I thought it was a real, special moment.

    Well, Jeff, to put it in this context, I wouldn’t view the Cubs as a marriage proposal. Rather, a bad ex who promises the “moon, stars and the sun,” then lies and cheats on you. The only difference is that you actually witness (or, at least hear) the improprieties go down on WGN.
