NLCS Game One – You win some, you lose some. Tomorrow’s another day

Written by , Posted in General

Game time was 7 o’clock, or somewhere in that vicinity. I made sure I had all my outside chores done. I could do my inside chores in front of the TV. In real life I act like I don’t care if the Cubs win or lose. But somehow that does not play itself out in reality. I do care if the Cubs win or lose. If I didn’t care, I wouldn’t keep such a close eye on them and plan my days around their schedule. But I often ask myself, “Why do I care?” I mean, really, what have the Cubs ever done to enhance the quality and purpose of my life. They reciprocate none of my devotion. I’ve never received a thank you from them for going to a game or watching so religiously. They never say, “Well, since you came to see us, we’ll come and see you sometime.” Sure, they won the World Series, but…I still follow them.

NLDS Game 4 – Another Worthless Experience

Written by , Posted in General

Apologies to Colin for stealing most of his title from yesterday’s post, but it just seemed to fit so nicely. That 3 hour and 57 minute big steaming turd of a game was a waste of everyone’s time. Want some more punishment? Click “read more”
