Cubs are the best team in baseball entering June for the first time in 100 years.
So read the Headlines at ESPN.
This is scary. Being a White Sox fan (who, I might add, are in First Place in the AL Central) this is disturbing. We can’t stand any goodness for the sCrUBS. None. The only time we *won’t* boo them, is if they are the ONLY representative from the Windy City. We won’t cheer; but we won’t BOO them, either. We’ve all been around to see the sCrUBS make the playoffs, but NO one (that I know) was even BORN the last time the sCrUBS even made an appearance at the Fall Classic. I am *convinced* that it would take a goat sacrifice in Center Field to counteract the curse history has on them. I’m still believing that it will, but the signs are pointing to the sCrUBS going again. HOWEVER….they *do* have a history of CHOKING. So I’m thinking…this year will be the biggest CHOKE of the CENTURY. They will go into October heavily favored–up 3-0 in the NLCS and lose the next four to my beloved Arizona Diamondbacks.
You see, I’m in baseball heaven now. Two Chicago teams and an Arizona team in first place….mmmmm. My fantasy? AZDBacks vs White Sox (that’ll kill me, but it will be sweet pain). Next would be White Sox v sCrUBS. Gotta love a hometown Series.
