Has all of the sideshow bullshit before this series ever started against the Dodgers crippled the Cubs?
Exhibit A: Before a pitch was thrown in the series, the good folks in City Hall decided to ban alcohol sales after the 7th inning in clinching games…
Exhibit B: Before a pitch was thrown in this series, someone thought it would be a great idea to have a priest bless the dugout.
On one hand you are assuming victory, on the other hand you are warding off evil defeating jinxes. In reality it has been a side show the Cubs could have gone without. The real side show should have been before the postseason ever started in the form of Piniella letting his players relax during the Mets series and going balls out against he Brewers. The “in essence” week off before this series has killed any momentum the Cubs had gained all season, and the rust has shown in the first two games.
We are all in…..every fucking chip left has to be in the pot in hopes we can double up and live to play another hand. Thank God Kosuke Fukudome has been eliminated.
Chat here during the game if you will be awake…late start for everyone but me here in California….Ill be here…hope to see you too.
