The Chicago Cubs played their last game of the season today, and came away with a win, to close out the season 89-73. That’s 1 game better than last season, when they won their division, and went to the post season. Remember when that happened? Yeah, that was awesome. Anyway, it was a decent season, but everyone was expecting a lot more… and I don’t think anyone saw St. Louis playing quite as well as they did this year. So yeah, the season is over, and that makes me sad… and their were a lot of things that didn’t impress me.. LaTroy Hawkins as a closer was a bad idea. Scoring less than 1 run every time Clement pitched the whole first half of the season was not kewl. Everyone getting injured all the time wasn’t so swell. Sammy Sosa forgetting how to hit, but remembering how to strike out kinda sucked… etc..
So I say goodbye to my Cubs once again… I’ll see you next year, when you can tear my heart out and play with it for a while, until you tire of it, and casually discard it. You can be like every girl I’ve ever liked, only I’ll get to see you a bit more regularly, and you’ll cost me a lot less. Don’t worry, I’ll continue make endless excuses for the way you treat me, and love you always. Go Cubs!
