Philadelphia has a "curse"; who knew?

I never heard of this one before. Of course it has the obligatory goat reference that we are all sick of. Sports fans are a superstitious lot, or maybe just sportswriters.

WKU Philosophy Prof To Address Religious Conference Re: Cubs

5

I get a Yahoo! news feed and this article turned up in today's batch of mostly useless, repetitive links. (Hey, did you hear that Hendry got a contract extension?) I found both the article and the topic on which the professor will be speaking to be pretty interesting. If you read the comments, you'll also see that I weighed in on the article's last two paragraphs, which did not please me. (Disclaimer: In no way do I intend this Fanshot to provoke a religious discussion, so let's leave that inessential detail alone, please. Thanks.)

Nothing particularly earth-shaking here, but USA Today provides a fairly concise, well-organized portrait of where the Cubs stand at the moment. Ryan Theriot receives an endorsement.

WSJ sportswriter Allen Barra waxes philosophical on the long, sad history of the Philadelphia Phillies. Naturally, the Cubs come up in the conversation a couple times. An interesting read as we head into the Fall Classic.

Cubs might play exhibition at new Yankee Stadium

4

NEW YORK (AP)—The Chicago Cubs might play the unofficial opener at the new Yankee Stadium. The Cubs and Yankees are talking about playing an exhibition game or games the weekend before most teams open the regular season, on Monday, April 6. While the Cubs are the Yankees’ first choice, the teams are still negotiating. The official opener of the $1.6 billion ballpark is April 16 against Cleveland.

OK, this Onion article is almost a month old and, obviously, way out of date. But it's Cubs-related and still pretty funny. It also has a happy ending.
