Taking a Break

Readers, friends, and internet strangers,

LB is taking a few days off. I tried to post earlier in the week, but, looking back on it now, it really is trivial considering what's been happening down in the Gulf over the last few days. I'll be back on tuesday or wednesday of next week, but for now, it seems only appropriate to take a back seat as far as the Cubs are concerned. I'm sure they'll perform well over the weekend with a series in Pittsburgh, and on tuesday I'll recap it all as well as possibly attempt to put my thoughts into words regarding the Hurricane.

I apologize for this post taking so long, but this sort of reflection and acknowledgement is pertinent regardless of the day on which it comes.

In the meantime, I hope everyone is well, I hope for the best down in Louisiana, Mississippi, and all the other cities/states trying to help out.

Hey! JT, it's time to start posting again. You can leave the Red Cross link at the bottom of each page.

Go Cubs! Knock the Stro's out of it!

Okay, the season is over now. The Cubs had to settle for another losing season, and now it's time to get on with predictions.

Who to root for?

The White Sox? The other Chicago team?

The Red Sox? Cause they're so colorful? How can you not enjoy watching Manny and Big Papi?

What about Atlanta? They've tried to when it all so many times and they're hot now. They did win once, but let's face it—coming so close so many times has gotta hurt.

What about the Astros? They've never been to a World Series. Maybe it's there year. Wouldn't it be great to see Petite and the Rocket shut down the Yankees? Ooooo! Steinbrenner would have appoplexy. That'd be worth the price of admission.

Or what about the Padres? They shouldn't even be in the playoffs. They're just a five hundred team. They should be in second or third place in some division. But wouldn't it be great hearing those know it all pundits arguing that "the best team always wins," and then trying to explain away that 500 record?

Of course we could end up with the Cards or the Yankees. Wouldn't that be a downer. Both of these teams were righteously humiliated by the Red Sox last year. I guess there'd be some sort of cosmic justice if they played each other in the finalee this year. Ugh! Don't know if I could stomach that.

Come on, J. T. Come back, good buddy. Over.

Jim, I am back! I will deal with all of that postseason stuff beginning tomorrow with the AL. I will also deal with a ton of old stories and thoughts from the last month of Cubs b*llsh*t, as well as what we can expect from those hapless f*cks in the front office over the off-season.

Thanks for reviving me -- it truly had been too long.
