Cubs fan here, with a passing interest in the Rockies.  Hoping the Rox can take out your Phils again like 2 years ago.

apparently someone has forgotten who won the World Series last year and who didn't even make the playoffs last year.

Eh, that's as much trash talk as I'm willing to do on the Rockies behalf.  And being a Cubs fan, I don't see the point in any trash talk really.  What am I going to say?  "I don't remember the Phillies being in the 1908 World Series!"

As a Cubs fan, I'm really enjoying the Cardinals down 0-2.  Especially considering they were one strike from winning game two before Holliday took a liner to the groin before tripping over his own feet.  Classic.

Tell your Phillies to bring their winter coats.

As Harry Kalas would sing,

Next time you're found, with your chin on the ground
There's a lot to be learned, so look around

Just what makes that little old ant
Think he'll move that rubber tree plant
Anyone knows an ant, can't
Move a rubber tree plant

But he's got high hopes, he's got high hopes
He's got high apple pie, in the sky hopes

So any time you're gettin' low
'stead of lettin' go
Just remember that ant
Oops there goes another rubber tree-
Oops there goes another rubber tree-
Oops there goes another rubber tree Plant!

I really cannot give a shit at this moment sabout baseball since the red sox or is that red sux blew it again, and so did the new england patriots in football.  Sucks to be a Massachusetts or New England sports fan at the moment.

Hopefully the Yankees choke with the consummate choke artist A-roid.

You're not going to get any sympathy from a Chicago fan.  It's been really tough for you lately...

 

Pats - Champions in 2001, 2003, 2004, plus runner-up in 2007 and 1996

Bears - since 1985 (ok, blowout of Pats, but still...) exactly one Super Bowl appearance, and a loss at that

 

Red Sox - World Series Champs 2004 and 2007

Cubs - World Series Champs in 1907 and 1908!  Last World Series 1945!

(and I don't want to hear about the White Sox - you can't be a Cubs and Sox fan, and I hate the White Sox almost as much as I hate hearing complaints about how "rough" it has been for New England/Boston fans lately)

 

Celtics - won title in 2007-2008 season

Bulls - ok, won 6 titles in 8 years in the 90's.  But sqaut since.  Couldn't even beat the run-down Garnett-less Celts in the playoffs last year.

 

Hockey - never mind.  Neither team has done anything in decades.

 

Sorry, but New England fans complaining about the Red Sox or Pats really sticks in my craw.

Lackey was huge for me this year in fantasy baseball - #1 starter stats as my #4 drafted starter.

I'd be insane not to be worried about the bullpen.   But I have faith.

so much for faith.  The Phillies blew 1-0 lead in a terrible 8th inning and lost the game 1-2.   The series is tied.  At least it is coming to Philly now.
