Drake and the Cubs

It seems a whole lot of athletes are tuned into Drake these days.  Though I had a pretty good idea, I wasn't sure so I looked it up. Yep, my suspicions were confirmed. Turns out, it is what it's always been. Which means----

Holy Huey, Duey, and Louie. All these jocks are walking around listening to a duck? Wow. This concussion syndrome is worse than we thought.

Uh oh. The Chicago Cubs find themselves down 2-1 to the LA Dodgers in the NLCS. This wasn't supposed to happen. Aren't the Cubbies the best team in the majors this year? Didn't they win 8 more games than anybody else?

That evokes a sobering thought. What happens if the Cubs, gasp, actually lose? Will the ghost of Mrs. O'Leary's cow come back to start another huge fire and burn the city down? Will all the north siders in the windy city march like lemmings into Lake Michigan to their watery doom? That could get ugly. Would cut down on the crime problem, though.

To pull this off, not even counting the World Series against likely Cleveland, the Cubs need to win 3 out of the next 4 against the Dodgers. That's a formidable task, given the dreaded Clayton Kershaw will start at least one, and possibly two of those games.

For whatever reason, the Cub bats have gone cold in this series. And it turns out the Dodgers are a pretty good team after all. They can hit, pitch, run, and field with the best of them.

As a midwesterner, it's hard to get behind the Dodgers, or anything LA for that matter. And doesn't Magic Johnson hold an owner's stake in the team? More money and fame are the last things he needs. And the last thing WE need is seeing his smiling mug on TV celebrating a championship. Yuck. Anybody but LA.
