100 years of hurt
Holy Cow! The Cubbies have flunked again. Why most Americans tuned into Saturday Night Live last night for their comedy, poor Cubs fans watched their beloved baseball team get beat by the Los Angeles Dodgers
for the third time in a week. This after going through the whole summer with the best record in the National League with 97 wins. A week later it meant nothing.
Only in Chicago can they sell 30,000 t-shirts proclaiming league title winners (the 6-team Central Division) and then a week later they're confined to gyms and bedtime! It is a 100 years since the Cubs, arguably one of the most famous and best supported baseball teams in the world, won the world series and for Cubs fans last night it might as well be another century before they claim the world series title. Newcastle Utd fans..... you have it so easy!
Cubs lost in LA 3-1 to get swept in the series as they did last year to Atlanta. The summer in the northside of Chicago is over. The snow is coming.
But wait, down at Sox Park at on W 35th St, the sun is still shining as the White Sox beat Tampa Bay 5-3 tonight in game 3 to hang on in the American League series. Game four in tomorrow night.
