    Sad Day for Chicago Baseball...

    It just dawned on my that the White Sox and Cubs are playing right now! A month ago I was so excited for this one game in September...sigh!

    My wife is at the game today. It definitely isn't generating the excitement it did a couple of months ago.

    In fact, there are only 10 Officially Sanctioned Reasons You Can Abandon Your Lifelong Team for Another. There are these and only these. Everybody else needs to just drink their beer and shut up:
    10. Your team is the Cubs. Seriously. Go already.
    Only abandon your team with good reason - Rick Reilly - ESPN


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    Me too! But I forgot it was on until a little bit ago! Just a few weeks ago I would have been excited about the game last night before falling asleep!

    I forgot, but I'm kind of focused on football right now.

    I'm 30 years in. I'm not giving up now.

    I agree. However, no matter what the score or how sucky the teams, I still like listening to a good ole fashioned Ron Santo meltdown...

    Soriano's defense right there had to bring the best out of Ron.

    Total gaff by Soriano, dropped fly cost 2 runs. Brenley REALLY reamed him for being a poor defensive player and not hitting. He would have him sitting if he were the manager, no doubt. 3-0 sox in 8th

    Soriano seriously needs to be benched!! I haven't thrown in the towel for the season yet but he is doing nothing well. I don't know if its his knee or whatever, i don't care... he's just not producing!

    Not to mention he came up with a runner on 3rd and only 1 out and struck out. Next time up he had a runner on 2nd and no outs and guess what... he struck out again. God, he's frustrating!! Put the ball in play and give your team a chance.
