I saw two very shameful things on TV last night. The first eight innings of the Cubs game weren’t televised here, so I was just spinning through the channels.

Imagine my surprise when I came upon Michael McDonald, formerly of the Doobie Brothers and Steely Dan, performing and selling a “Christmas Songs” CD. In August. On a home shopping network. How embarrassing.

And, of course, the Cubbies, opening their “Last Chance 2009 Home Stand” by handing the Washington Nationals the biggest win in team history. Shameful.

I guess I can unblock the month of October on my social calendar now.
