Well if you're like me, you were in meetings all afternoon and missed the disaster live yet couldn't escape the rotten news when somebody texted you.
Here's what mine said...
SUTTER: Go Bears.
ME: Cubs lost?
SUTTER: Pathetically. Even worse, Contreras blew out a hammy.
It's the kind of text that you get walking down the hall and forget you're walking.
Sideswipe the wall.
Bump into Chris or Sarah and don't apologize.
This is the kind of thing makes you realize just how impossibly lucky the 2016 Cubs were.
Our contract with the Theo-led Chicago Cubs includes the joys and pratfalls of watching kids grow up in front of our eyes.
Now, we'll see how they deal with serious adversity.
Same with you and me, because as I've said, never in our lives have we lived through a season as the fans of the Defending World Champs.
And it's definitely weird.
