The Curse of the Themed Road Trip Strikes Again!

Chicago Cubs

Is it just me, or do the Cubs never – and I mean never ever ever – win on the days they are subsequently heading out on a themed road trip?

Getaway days have been an anomalous problem for the Cubs the last few years, I suppose, and since these themed trips necessarily take place on a getaway day, maybe it’s just that. But man. I’m telling you, I can’t remember the last time I saw a Cubs player dressed up like a crazy banshee or a fashion enthusiast without the dint of profound sadness just behind that $500 bowler.

Anyway, that is to say, the Cubs got smoked today by the Reds, but it was a themed travel day nevertheless. So enjoy!
