Carry On, Cubs

Heard that song on the radio, and it embodies the spirit of you, Chicago Cubs.

As my friend from Seattle said tonight, you are my National League team. My twin sister from the north side. My team in 2016. I was all-in with you tonight, and you, unlike my fucking sorry ass Detroit Tigers DID NOT LET ME DOWN!!!!

We fucking did it. 9-8. In a game I will attempt to recap to my brother who just arrived home from work forever… leadoff double, horrible challenge, bad pitching… bad snarf karma… a 4-1 hole. A 5-4 lead. Max Scherzer choking worse than Washington on his fat contract… the Nats battling back, each and every inning… only to be out-battled by the boys in blue.

You’re done, Dusty Baker. You, too Max. Oh, and Bryce Harper? Way to end the series swinging at ball four in the dirt. Game over.

  • Despicable Detroit The clock had just struck midnight in West Michigan. September had arrived – as did my younger brother, whose car door could be heard at 11:59. It was supposed to be lucky: since we were kids and Nickelodeon told us to begin each month by saying, “rabbit, rabbit,” we strove for it, even getting it [...]
  • Must Stop Repeating the Past Detroit cannot keep repeating the same juvenile habits that have crippled us in seasons past. I’m LOOKING RIGHT AT YOU, BRAD AUSMUS. DO YOUR GODDAMN JOB. Stop depending on spread sheets, matchups, and absurd statistics to make every basic decision for you. You’ve had enough time to acclimate to being manager, and you must find [...]
  • Cubs Championship Parade Pictures What a nice, sunny day in Chicago for the first parade in 108 years! Here are some nice printscreens I took while watching them wind through the streets, ending with a center stage production: The atmosphere was overwhelming, with people pouring out to support the team they’ve loved forever. The excitement was palpable, bringing everyone [...]
