Sox Loose, Cubs won't be Outdone!

First in war, first in peace, last in the National League?

Well tonight is the first time in history that Chicago has managed to lose TWO playoff games in a single day (it may be the first time it's happened to anyone...anybody know off the top of their head if it's ever happened to New York or LA?). Honestly I've got to say I'm flabbergasted. My expectations were kinda low for the Sox who had basically tried to give away the division over the last month of the season, but the Cubs were one of the strongest teams in baseball this year.

There can be only explanation: God is punishing Illinois for Barack Obama. God help you if he actually wins the election. I foresee plagues, locusts and whatnot...possibly even a repeat of the Lou Brock for Ernie Broglio trade...the horror...the horror...

Now it's not to late for Chicagoans to get right with the Lord. If love Chicago baseball put a McCain sign in your front yard, donate to the Republican National Committee, and above all vote for John McCain.

Obama has actually said he is a sox fan, and has said denigrating things about Cubs fans, so leave him out of the Cubs problems. If God wanted to stick it to Obama, the Cubs would have won. God's hatred for the Cubs should not be trivialized with paltry presidential politics.


PS I feel sick.

PPS Wait, the Cubs are just setting up a "brink of elimination" thing, just like the Red Sox down 0-3 to the Yanks. Yeah, thats it. Loosing the first two games was absolutely the best thing that could have happened.

Also, did you notice how I capitalized all the teams except the White Sox. Suck on that.

Yes, I am bitter and deranged. Go Cubs Go.

Karma's a bitch ain't it?

I think some of this is payback to those Cubs fans who had no symapthy for the predicament of the Houston ballclub following the hurricane of late.

If the Cubs do loose out who are the going to blame their loss on this time...there was no goat or guy reaching for a foul ball to hang the albatross on this time.

Just so you know, outlaw 13, I thought the Astros got screwed. But what were the Cubs supposed to do, let them win?

Outlaw 13 said...

No the Cubs shouldn't have let Houston win.

Naw, I don't blame the Cubs. But I read some comments from Chicago fans that were downright hateful.

While I understand that they don't represent a lot of things the actions of a few reflect poorly on the many, and I am that spiteful guy that will take it out on everyone. :)
