The Red Sox, then the White Sox, then....
I have to admit that I was extremely relieved when the Cubs failed to make the playoffs last year. It's not that I have anything against the Cubs; I was just pretty sure that it meant the End of the World if they won the World Series in 2006, since the Red Sox and White Sox had won the previous two years. Like God giving the deprived fans of those accursed teams one last fling before he pulled the plug on the whole show, or something like that.
Or maybe God was forgiving old transgressions.
We know the Red Sox were cursed for selling Babe Ruth for mere money (not even for another player, but for money!)
The White Sox were cursed for selling the World Series (as described in this movie).
But what did the Cubbies do to so offend the Almighty?
Was it because they let Ozzie Osbourne sing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame"? (Maybe I should say "try to sing", but I'm not sure that that would be more accurate.)
Then, to further insult the poor Cubs fans, the White Sox and Cardinals win the last two World Series!
What could they have done?
