Druck the Cubs & A Diversion or Two

My awesome pal Dean says that I must share the following: the Chicago Cubs and I are officially on a break. I don’t plan to see other teams, though I might flirt with the Dodgers and the Angels. I’m sorry, Cubs, but after a century without a World Series, it’s time to call a spade a LOSER.

I just give, and give, and give — believing in you long after common sense would dictate otherwise. This has gone on long enough. Get off your asses, get to the playoffs, and we’ll revisit our relationship. Until then, don’t call me. Unless I happen to be in Chicago, and you’ve got bleacher seats.

So this was entertaining to me:

As was this letter to Sir Richard Branson of Virgin Airways fame, complaining about the food en route from Mumbai to London. I can’t help but snicker every time I read this passage:

Only you open the present and it’s not in there. It’s your hamster Richard. It’s your hamster in the box and it’s not breathing. That’s how I felt when I peeled back the foil and saw this: [see image 3, above].

And speaking of peeling back the foil, awesome pal Adra had some AMAZING barbecue chicken quesadillas last night at South and I must have them one Sunday very soon. They were bursting with copious amounts of cheese, barbecue sauce, and MORE CHEESE. Like this pic, but double the queso:

It's your hamster, Richard.

I would even watch the Cubs if quesadillas like these are involved. Clearly, I can be bought.

    cubby,

    you even need a new nickname now!

    the great jim valvano is probably rolling over in his grave as i type this. “don’t give up, don’t ever give up.”

    readmission to the cub kingdom is not a given. at minimum, you will be given a diner-like test, an airing of grievances shall also occur and lastly, there will be a performance of your feats of strength.

    thing of how sweet it will be when it DOES happen. it’s going to happen. it happened for the obnoxious red sox fans who even invented a curse that they didn’t know existed. it happened for the NY Rangers (think “1940”). it will happen and being part of the journey from the beginning is a heckuva lot better than jumping on as the last out is being recorded.

    go cubbies!
