National Hug a Cub Fan Day

First the good news. With baseball season over for me, I can now go back to watching the Disney Channel which, unlike any baseball broadcast, is blissfully free of Viagra ads.

Cubs fans everywhere are mourning the loss of the 2008 season. If you are the friend or relative of a Cubs fan, you might want to call and check on them. Go to their homes and remove all sharp objects. If you take them on an outing somewhere, avoid businesses with televisions broadcasting sports news, and bridges or other high places. Remind them that they do not mourn alone but with celebrity Cubs fans Bill Murray, John Cusack, William Peterson, Jim Belushi, Vince Vaughn, Gary Sinese, Bonnie Hunt, Jimmy Buffett, Eddie Vedder, Billy Corigan, and Joe Mantegna.

What ever you do, don't say "There is always next year." After having heard that for a hundred years, you are likely to be punched.

Note to any of you with teams still in the playoffs. Voodoo dolls are not effective. My Manny Ramirez doll has been in the oven for three days now, and, nothing!

Luckily, I do not follow any sports, not even bowling. But if I did follow a sport, that is the one I would follow.

There is a really good book out that they reviewed on NPR and that I just finished reading called Watching Baseball Smarter. It was written by this guy that is obsessed with baseball. He discusses the subtle nuances that most people miss. After reading the book, I realized that baseball, at least on the major league level, is alot more scripted than I had thought.
