The only thing I can say is it could have been worse. Think how awful it would have been to watch them pull this sort of gag job in the World Series.

And to those who say there's no curse or anything supernatural involved...you just don't know....you don't know the half of it. If there is major league baseball for 10,000 more years, the Cubs will never win a World Series.

Oof. You might just want to donate that to charity next time.

Poor Cubbies,

I don't know if it's a jinx or a curse. But there is something definitely there, and not saying I believe in a supernatural power goat (i still don't know what that is all about). But I do think it's something in the fans mind, which they always expect the worse and maybe it gives out bad vibes to the players. Or the players psych themselves out playing for a team with such rich history that just can't win the big one.

It all came to a head when that fan touched the ball. Under those circumstances (3-0 lead 8th inning), Any other team (maybe except RedSox) the player(s) would look at him and roll his eyes and say "Idiot, I could have caught that"... But not the Cubs, they all freaked out and acted like "Oh my god, it's happening. We needed that now we're lost!" with a 3-nothing lead.

Did the jinx metamorphous into the goofy fan with the giant headphones? Naaa stupid fans going for the ball happens all the time... But in Cubs land it was

I'm glad the gracious nature of our two states has come out in this thread. I was torn about the Cubbies...

On the one hand:
Awww...they haven't been there in what? 100 years? Let the poor little bastards win one.

On the other hand:
They're the freakin' Cubbies! If they get in the series, or God forbid win, how much more obnoxious are they going to be when they invade Miller Park every year?

I'll admit to feeling bad for Woods and his terminal case of the yips last night though...


There's always NEXT year....

Quoting John Anderson (ESPN anchor, not the LB or former presidential candidate) "I'm from 'sconsin". Some of us Cheeseheads are also in pain today.

Not that I expect any sympathy, though. That's what it means to be a Cubs fan.

    So, I'm driving home last night listening to the Cubs-Marlins game on ESPN radio. As soon as "The Incident" happens, my first reaction is "Jesus Christ, who is booking this shit?!?"

    I had just gotten done watching what seemed like a lifeless bunch of Red Sox float through another lost opportunity, and I get in the car and drive home, openly yelling and rooting for the Cubs, and this happens. Did Vince Russo swerve us all and take over as Commish of Baseball when I wasn't looking?



He really should have turned heel after he deflected that ball. Something as simple as tearing off his shirt, to reveal a Marlin's uniform. Then after the game, he could've cut a promo on local TV talking about how he got tired of putting up with all the losing as a Cubs fan, and all the idiots in Chicago, so he decided to go with a real winner. Then Dusty Baker could've run in, and said, "You won this round, but wait till Wednesday!!"
Imagine the heat! (and the riots)

My buddy suggested an alternative - the guy unzips his head, to reveal an actual marlin underneath.

Number of championships won by Chicago sports teams (5 of them) since 1961: 9 (6 NBA titles, two NFL titles, one Stanley Cup)

Number of championships won by Green Bay sports teams (1 of them) since 1961: Six (6 NFL titles)

So one team from the smallest market in pro sports with only one pro team has been almost as successful as five whole teams in the same amount of time. Bottom line= Chicago's teams suck.



"When this bogus term alternative rock was being thrown at every '70s retro rehash folk group, we were challenging people to new sonic ideas. If some little snotty anarchist with an Apple Mac and an attitude thinks he invented dance music and the big rock group is coming into his territory, [that's] ridiculous." - Bono, 1997

Bottom line: who gives a damn about football. Played it. It's boring. Let Green Bay win as many titles as they want in football. I don't care. Win away. Just don't make me live there.

Seeing how this post is originally about how the Cubbies and the Red Sox losing their tuesday game which therefore on Thursday offically eliminated the Sox and the Cubbies.

Well I guess it's just the natural order of the universe. The sun raises from the east, the ocean tides move in and out and the Red Sox and Cubbies will always flame out and fall short of the championship.

They both did it in such spectacular fashion. The Red Sox last night, with 5 outs to go (similar to Cubs game 6). With an obvious tired out Martinez and you have Mike Timlin waiting in the bully. A Mike Timlin who's been GOLD all playoffs long, A Mike Timlin who has had World Series pressure experience (1992 World Series final out in Atlanta while with the Jays anyone).

The irony of the whole thing is that the Evil Empire who's to of their latest acqui$ition Boone and Giambi, who had done almost nothing all series (hell all season long) for the Yanks. were the clutch guys to give the Empire the win.
