Cubs look flat in win

This Cubs team is bad. Even in tonight's win (against one of the worst teams in baseball) they look like a group of guys who are already thinking about their plans for the All Star break. Note tonight's ninth inning, which began with two weak ground-outs and ended with "lead-off" hitter Correy Patterson swinging at a ball in the dirt.

This team has no bullpen (as evidenced by Friday night's choke), a fragile rotation and an offense spottier than a car windshield after a drive across a Minnesota interstate.

But at least they won, and so Sandberg the cat got to do his happy dance.

You must not have the Cubs neurological disorder as bad as Liz. She is convinced they are going to win the World Series this year. Yet another heartbreak in the making.

The disorder manifests itself in two main forms: Optimistic and Realistic. While the parent strain Cubfanism is hereditary, CfR can manifest in the offsrping of a CfO parent, and vice versa.

Perhaps your children will be lucky and display the CfR strain.

Ultrasound technology has not reached the stage where the R and O forms can be identified in the unborn child, so Nathan and I will have to wait and see...

I don't think that this is a genetic disorder. Exhibit A: I heard you were talking about decorating the baby's room with a Cubs theme.

Whitesoxhooliganism on the other hand may, in fact, have a strong genetic component.
