That's right, Cub Fans.
I'm asking you to make a semi-supreme sacrifice today and refuse anything that has to do with the number 3.
There's just some kind of bad karma thing about that numeral.
Maybe if we stay away from it, even just til 2:20 today, the Cubs will finally win 3 in a row.
So...nothing with threes.
Like, even if it's past noon you not only must you stop at beer #2, but it cannot even be a beer from Three Floyds.
And that's a big ouch, because a cold Alpha King is one fabulous brew.
You go golfing, you gotta skip the third hole and stay away from the par threes.
Reading something to the kiddies?
No Three Little Pigs, no Three Blind Mice.
Actually, you could make that two and that should be fine.
Have you ever seen such a sight in your life as two blind mice?
She only gets to choose between the too-cold and the too-hot porridge, because the third bear isn't there.
You can listen to 2 Doors Down, 2 Dog Night, and 2nd Eye Blind.
3 Mile Island?
Reading, riting and rithmetic?
Pick any 2.
No Pep Boys, no Musketeers, and worst of all no Stooges.
Come ON, Cubs.
You get the three today.
Oh, and by the way, it's Matt Garza against Astro rookie Jordan Lyles who's zero and 5.
His debut was against the Cubs in May, and he gave up just 5 hits and 2 runs in 7 innings.
The Cubs were up 3-1 in the 9th and gave up 6 runs.
