Monday (today) is the home opener for the Chicago cubs, I know it’s still early in the season but it doesn’t look good for a world series run. Playoffs yes, series no. Much like the chagrin of every Chicago sports fan we have to suffer maybe through another half a decade of mediocrity and bull shit before there is another professional sports team winning a championship. In all seriousness when a news channel focuses on what food is being served at the old ball stadium instead of how the team plays, you know there is a problem.
Note: I said winning a championship vying or competing is another thing it’s like premature ejaculation. However the Loyola ramblers was this year’s “little engine that could” they actually energized the sports scene like no other team in the Chicago area could. In fact I forgot about how badly the Chicago Blackhawks were doing during all the sports coverage they got. Every. Single. Day.
Maybe that explains the second half too much hype, too many expectations if we had another successful sports team to alleviate all the hype we imposed upon these young men the outcome would have been different. Now I have to go and say ‘wait til next year’ yeah and the official season hasn’t even started.
