Who Can We Blame This Year?
It only makes sense that the post after "The Chicago Cubs Make the Playoffs" is a post about how the Cubs YET AGAIN didn't make the World Series. Who are we to blame this year? No Steve Bartman? It seems we've always got an excuse to why we fell apart or there's mention of "the curse". It's pretty simple this year. There was no offense. In the pathetic three games the cubs played in the post season, there was only one inning I actually felt a spark in the cubs. ONE INNING. They were dead. Not once did I feel the team thought they could do it, in fact...i'm not sure they even wanted it.
So yet another year goes by for the Cubs and no World Series. It's been 99 years since their last win. Is 100 the big year? God Damnit I want to believe. I'm just not sure my heart can handle another let down. This is the first year in over 20 that I let myself not get excited on opening day. I lasted through June but they cubs proved worthy after the All-Star break. They WERE hot. But they didn't stay that way. They certainly didn't deserve a trip to the World Series with the way the played this post season. Nor did the Phillies. So now who do I route for? I could give a shit, quite honestly. I guess I'd like to see the Rockies go all the way as it's really amazing how HOT they are right now. I was always a Boston fan but I just don't have the love for that team like I used to. Are they the new Yankee's?
So whatever happens will happen. I'm not devoting any of my time to post season baseball. I'll most likely watch the series but as far as I am concerned. The 2007 season has already ened.
