I predicted the future the other day.
Had a vision.
And I swear to you this is true: I had a dream and this guy I used to work with, Mike Sheehan, was behind some kind of table with stuff on it and he said, "I always keep a little cash on the side because you never know when something's going to go wrong with your car."
I woke up and immediately said, "My car's gonna break down."
I told the story to my family and to a bunch of people at work.
My clutch cable busted about 2 blocks from my house on the way home that night.
So lately I've been trying to remember my dreams, hoping Sheehan shows up again and says something like, "I always look for the impossible to happen, especially when it comes to Northwestern graduates."
Which would mean the Cubs would somehow sign Joe Girardi.
Or maybe he'd say, "If my first name was Jerry and my last name rhymed with "fan hello", I'd look out for that bus." You can guess what that would mean.
Or even, "I always have another job waiting for me in Baltimore." (Of course, that one would only be good if, in the dream, Sheehan morphed into Jim Hendry.)
Last night, after the Reds scored 4 in the 5th, and it was 6-1 Reds? I actually said loud enough for my wife to hear, "There's no way the Cubs can win this one."
True - you can ask her.
Anyway, what do you guys think?
What's gonna happen with our favorite team?
If I have any more dreams I'll let you know.
Here's something I do predict: Dusty Baker will re-live 2003 in Cincinnati, only his guys will be more like Florida from that year. If I was Atlanta or San Diego, I would hate to face them in the playoffs. Not discounting the Cards yet, but getting pretty close.
