…not to be a Cubs fan.
Not only was I raised to hate the Cubs, but I’ve grown anti-fond of Cubs fans themselves. When you hold up “I like Ike” signs in Miller Park and boo the Astros, well, you deserve your team’s getting swept. I’m not sure the players themselves deserve it, but certain Cubs fans most certainly do.
It’s also a good day not to be a Brewers fan.
Go… everybody! I want the Rays to go all the way, but if the Red Sox win the ALCS then I’ll just cheer for the NL team, whoever it is.
Despite the epic suck of the Astros against the White Sox in 2005, I feel slightly guilty cheering against the other Chicago team. The Dugout has made me love
wordupthome Jim Thome, and I’m partial to Ken Griffey as well. Sigh.
So much postseason drama, so little time.
