What's a Cub Fan to do?
It's the St. Louis Cardinals vs the Milwaukee Brewers in the 2011 National League Championship Series.
Seems like this painful display has been going on for weeks, and what's worse is the games have been pretty good.
Why do we hate St. Louis so much?
Because they're always good.
What about Milwaukee?
Well, they'll probably lose Prince, but they look kinda loaded for years.
At least each time they play in this series, one of 'em loses.
And they've been doing a good job of alternating those losses.
But suddenly it's getting to the end, and I've recently come to the revolting realization that the NEXT THING is about to happen.
Like, if the Brewers lose on Sunday, that means the freaking Cardinals get to go play in the World Series.
Or if the Cards lose the next two games, then it'll be the Brewers...
In the often helpful words of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson, "Dogs licked my heart."
Well, at least we have Theo Epstein, right?
And there's always Jake's Pub over at Clark and Oakdale, just waiting with it's awesome beer selection and fabulous pool table.
I might just have to go see how straight his sticks are.
