I want to be clear, because this...was all an accident.
While I did start this season off thinking that the Major League version of our favorite team would be not so good...I didn't start off this season thinking Marmol would be so Marmol-like, that nobody would hit, that the bullpen would need to call somebody else's bullpen...
Awhile back, for no reason whatsoever, I bought a bunch of these little 3" square canvases at Blick Art Supplies.
Started painting little dogs on them.
Then, the Cubs had this horrible start.
Only at that point did I start to think hey, maybe just for something to do I'll make little "dog day" paintings for every loss this season.
And at the end of the season, I'll glue them all together on one board.
Like a Ziggy calendar if his little Ziggy-isms were about shingles or something.
We're 14 games in and there are already 9 dog days.
By the end of the season this may end up being, um, a fairly large piece.
But just to not be such a Captain Bringdown, let me leave you with this.
Maybe in 2015 or so, I can do another one.
One about winning.
One with different kinds of days.
Okay, so right now I know you're thinking right, that would be "unicorn days", but lets wait and see what happens.
No way any baseball will be played at Wrigley Thursday if this rain keeps coming.
