#3 And, seeing that Joe's been dead since 1951, it makes more sense too.

#4 Silent Running is a bit upset over the Cubs loss:
Security had to escort the fan that got in the way out of the stadium. The best thing he can do is pack all his shit, and move as far away from Chicago, tonight, as possible. He might want to get a police escort. From someone beside the Chicago cops. Paraguay might work, better yet he might want to look for a rental under an assumed name in Madagascar, and hope no one recognizes him. Hope he got to keep that fucking baseball, so he can look at it every day for the rest of his miserable, miserable, pathetic excuse for a life, and realize what the hell he did tonight.
See, this is the big difference between Cubs and Red Sox fans.
Every spring Cubs fans think "Maybe this will be the year".
Red Sox fans think "Ok, how are they gonna blow it this year?"

#5 It was tough to watch: Alou's glove was right there. But Prior and rest of team didn't overcome this piece of adversity; Cubs were still up 3-0, 1 out and 3-2 on Castillo. The rest of the meltdown we saw. Let's say "corkhead" was a precursor to disaster, not the cause. Overall, however, I'm still optimistic. Now that the shock has dissipated, there is still tonight's game and if Cubs don't win, well, then we didn't deserve the pennant.

If he's smart, he's already in Michigan, on his way to New York and a flight to Fiji...

#9 I blame Alex Gonzalez for muffing a potential double-play ball, actually.

That there were 8 or so folks all with gloves outstretched goes to show that if it wasn't this guy it could well have been another.

#10 Well, the Cubs got hammered. Drat.
