My second Cubs post in 6 hours. Whichever commenter got her panties all in a twist because of my hatred for the Cubs better be picking me out a basket of mini-muffins right now. Anyway…
I’m still in Chicago and am watching the Cubs game in the Wrigleyville Goose Island. (Just for the record, I am a meat-eater, but the Veggie Burger at Goose Island is PHENOMENAL. Anyway.) I can’t help but notice today that Ted Lilly has a good lil’ game going on. Shhh. We won’t talk about it here.
I am also battling with the Angel and Devil on my shoulders about how to feel about this. Because the Cubs just got handed two extra home games, essentially. And Houston, who was suddenly surging in the WIld Card race, got robbed of two home games in the wake of a natural disaster. That is SO crappy.
On the other hand… it really helps me that the Cubs took one (and probably two) from the Astros. It helps the Cardinals. But the part of me who likes fairness and sportsmanship and stuff thinks the Astros really got screwed with their pants on.
