Even with the lackluster play of my favorite team last night, I decided to try and think positively.
What could I do?
Well, this particular game where nothing was falling in for the Cubs, nobody could get past second base, the pitching was sub-par, and the fielding and baserunning were pretty shoddy, I realized that the Cubs had given me gas.
Actually, a whole wonderful body full of gas.
And I thought “if only the Cubs were at Wrigley tonight, I could help with some timely wind.”
Because you know, that’s one of the main reasons the Cubs can’t seem to hit homers this year, the no-wind thing.
And I thought, perhaps you’re feeling a little gassy yourself, Cub Fan, with this recent play.
Perhaps there are 41,000 Cub Fans out there with the exact same condition – why we could all go to Wrigley and get that flag blowing straight out and just watch the homers land on Waveland and Sheffield!
Just a thought.
Okay, the Cubs lose 6-1 and have dropped 6 of their last 10, yet remain impossibly tied for first place.
Tonight Carlos Zambrano can redeem himself and hopefully get back to being Carlos, and maybe the Cubs can beat the 62 and 79 Pirates.
Please do not make me follow through on my plan, guys.
