Glorious defeat

Last week, I roused myself briefly from my sports apathy to support the White Sox in the World Series. I confessed at the time that my only motivation was Laurence Simon, die-hard and long-suffering Astros fan. The way I saw it, either my long-standing ability to pick losers would prevail and Lair's team would win, or he'd get disappointed and his writing would benefit (happy Lair is boring Lair).

Well, the Cubs (as everyone in the world except for three Mongols in a yurt knows by now) swept the Astros. And did it have my hoped-for effect on Lair's blog?

I think it did.

Feh, it doesn't matter if he called them the Cubs, by the next time Halley's Comet rolls through again neither team will have one another World's Series.

My splng is a tad off, "won", but the prediction stands. Neither has a snowball's chance in a very warm place of gaining another World Series championship.

If I mistakenly call myself Karl Rove, then Jay can call the Sox the Cubs.

I thought I was the only one living in that particular happy place!

I am happy for the Sox and all... but as a Cubs fan it is a bit of a bitter pill to swallow.

Perhaps the Cubs will ace out the Cardinals and the Astros next year.

(I point to Jay Tea's admitted sports apathy for his inability to distinguish between Cubs and White Sox.)

Jay Tea,

As a lifelong Chicago White Sox fan, I DEMAND an immediate and full correction. Calling the White Sox the Cubs is akin to calling Ronald Reagan Bill Clinton!

Don't make me hurt you!

White sox, please change it for me just like last week.

I believe the Cubs winning the World Series is one of the Seven Signs of the Apocalypse.

Or is it winning the pennant? I can never remember.
