Remember, "Why not us?"
Kinda like our current manager with the way more self-defeating, "What can you do?"
I still have alot of fondness, despite the way it ended, for 2003.
I think it was the last innocent season in the history of the Chicago Cubs.
It was the last season where going to the post season was a true hope rather than an expectation.
It was the last season before Big Money came to town, and the home crowd changed from regular people to Big Money people - people who could afford to buy the continually escalating season tickets and concessions. And when the return on their investment didn't pan out they got angry rather than the way they reacted before 2003, back when "what can you do?" was way more appropriate.
I miss that time, because we all seem more bitter now.
But such is progress, I guess.
Anyway, getting back to progress, or lack of, the Cubs lost their league-leading 30th one run game 3 to 2 in 10.
I didn't see, but it sounds especially painful with Tyler Colvin being apparently safe on that last double play.
I have no idea how many games I've been to this year, and I can't believe how lucky I was to have gone to that last victory over Pittsburgh a couple games ago.
Cubs, have a couple more games like that right now, please.
The Goat of Christmas Past is in our midst, and he must be stopped.
