The Cubs were off yesterday, so I was able to fully enjoy a contractor craning 13 6500lb. trees over a house and into the locations I specified in a client's backyard, without worrying that I was missing another outstanding Cubs performance.

(I'd love to include a pic of this, but there doesn't' seem to be a way to upload a pic without the pic being hosted somewhere (I think).)

The Cubs were off yesterday, so I wrote about the Cubs.

I'll take a day off over that late term abortion of a game we witnessed last night.

Even worse than an off day.... a POSTPONED game... You get all excited for a game, then the game is called for some unforseen reason. VERY disappointing!

Yeah, I'm looking outside (and on the radar) and it doesn't look good for the game this afternoon. Maybe if they delay it for a few hours they can get it in... who knows...

In retrospect, I'd rather Cubs had been rained out yesterday... not a great day for them after two VERY exciting days... very anti-climatic.

The Cubs are off today, so I'm going to try to get some fucking work done. No promises.

Today sucks, just like Blue said. Hard to have an offday after the way things played out.

That's the "funny thing" about being a Cubs fan... Maybe it's just me, be throw out pretty much ANY team (other than the Cubs), and I will probably be thinking, "[insert team name here]... I HATE [insert team name here]!" Maybe it's because pretty much any team that comes to mind has had their way with the Cubs.

Maybe I'm the only one here, but this is how I rank my favorite MLB teams- top five;
1. The Cubs!
2. Anyone playing the White Sox
3. Anyone playing the Cardinals
4. Anyone playing the Brewers
5. Anyone playing the Yankees

The rest of the MLB, I hate, to varying degrees.

I actually found myself actively rooting for the Yankees during that game against the Red Sox last weekend.

Yeah, it sometimes gets complicated trying to determine who to hate the most at any given point in time. Things get gray when the White Sox play the Cardinals, for instance... you think, man, I sure wish that a game could end in a scoreless tie!

Yeah. Or the stadium could collapse. Whichever.

I wasn't going "there" with my VERBALIZED thinking, but yeah, similar thoughts cross my mind. What can I say? A "poor sporting", "sorry losing", "sour grape eating" attitude lurks in my dark soul.
