It’s hard out there for a Chicago Cubs owner.

An intrepid commuter snapped a few shots of Cubs owner Tom Ricketts on the Metra train heading back to Willamette, and predictably, Ricketts didn’t look too good. In some ways, it’s nice to see that he shares not only the train in common with the rest of us, but also, our heartache.

Then again, maybe he was just bumming about the continually failing efforts to raise the debt ceiling.
