Well, this isn't exactly where we thought we'd end up, is it? Wrigley, our secret weapon defanged. Few clutch hits. Erratic pitching in the first game, erratic fielding in the second game. It sucks.
I didn't watch most of the game yesterday; I was watching the debate with my wife. But I did catch some of the end, and I did view the game threads. Some of what was being said there was utterly shameful, and the worst even followed to the thread designed to give us a break from them. I'm looking at you, DaBard.
I don't believe in curses. But I do believe in the collective unconciousness. I think that there's more mental and emotional pressure on the Cubs than ever before, save, possibly, game 6 in 2003. I think that this is part of why they are struggling. So this is what I have done, and I encourage those who agree with me to do the same:
I will not visit this site except for right now, until the game starts tomorrow. I have taken off all my cubs paraphernalia. I am not, and will not wear Cubs clothing -- not even my Cubs underoos. I will not listen to the sports segments on the news. I will not visit ESPN (easy, that). I will do my best to not think about the Cubs, and give them a break from the pressure they are under.
They can come back from this; it's been done before, and this team, when everything is aligned, can do anything. But that is a story for tomorrow night.
