Stupid World Series
It may be hard out there for a pimp, but it's even harder for Cubs fans. Still no championship since 1908, and not even a World Series appearance since 1945. This year's team, frankly, sucked. Sigh.
To review recent history:
2003 - Cubs collapse vs. Marlins in NLCS; Cubs blow The Bartman Game; Marlins win World Series
2004 - Red Sox win World Series; first since 1918
2005 - Cross-town rival White Sox win World Series; first since 1917
2006 - Division rival Cardinals win World Series after winning only 83 of 162 regular season games, the fewest ever for a modern World Series champ
It's as if some higher power is taunting us. If it's William Sianis and his Billy Goat wreaking all this havoc from the afterlife, you can let up now. We get it.
