No, Cicero-president-guy, what's holding the Cubs back is not Wrigley Field. If that were the case then the Cubs would be doing much better on the road than they are right now.

What's holding the Cubs back is their pitching, specifically the bullpen and specifically specifically Carlos "Snatching Defeat From the Jaws of Victory" Marmol.

No, no it makes perfect sense. The Cubs are winning, therefore they have to send in Marmol - who's not even the closing pitcher anymore! - to fuck it all up.


EDIT: Holy shit, they actually won despite Marmol.

I just teared up at a commercial for the NLB 2012 videogame that showed the Cubbies winning the World Series.

How wrong/sad is that?

The bad news: the Cubs lost to the Brewers but at least it was only by one run and the Cubs took two out of three in the series! So there too hah!.

The good news: Ron Santo autographed my ball cap.

First off, the Chicago Cubs are the 2008 Central Division Champions. All bow to the awesomeness that is the Chicago Cubs.

Second, I played hooky from work (not really; I swapped shifts with a co-worker) to go to the Pec Thing with Mom. Came off with a fairly good haul this time around. Major purchases of note are The Great Mouse Detective on DVD and a set of two of the Basil Rathbone/Nigel Bruce Sherlock Holmes films - Dressed to Kill and Terror By Night - on VHS. I hemmed and hawed over that last one, because 1) I really prefer DVD to VHS and 2) I couldn't remember how good the reviews on either movie had been.

Also found a couple more keys to add to my skeleton key collection, one of which is now affixed to the tassel of one of my bookmarks. And Mom thinks its a weird hobby :p

And the award for "Best Line Uttered At A Pep Rally" goes to Chicago mayor Richard Daley, for his line about sending Lou Piniella down to Springfield to help Governor Blagoviech after the Cubbies win the Series.
