Arrrrrgggghhhhh! The Cubs went down to defeat at the hands of the Cincinnati Reds last night at Wrigley Field. No dramatic comebacks last night. Drat!
Meanwhile, those pesky Milwaukee Brewers crushed Houston, so the two teams are tied for first with only ten games left.
Baseball season is dying. A sad moment for any fan. But we can hope for a ressurection by getting our team into the playoffs. Being a Cub fan is about hope and dealing with despair. Lifelong despair. Wearing your Cub hat furtively, at night, when walking the dog, hoping no one will see you. I know some of you (and you know who you are!) will find this all a bit........melodramatic. But, its not. Really.
