The Daily Hilario: Cubs win; how boring

Your daily dose of off-topic shenanigans.

ONE FOR THE HISTORY BOOKS:

108 years.  History has been made.

Yawn.  Another feel-good sports redemption story.  Curse lifted.  Etc, etc, etc.

And so, with universal constants crumbling all-around us, the apocalypse is night.  Take care, friends.  Next stop, who knows.

Now, I should make it clear, I'm a very casual baseball fan — I was a hardcore Dave Niehaus fan, who used to announce Mariners games, but my baseball experience was 90% listening to Dave, 5% caring about Edgar Martinez, 3% caring about Junior, and 1% caring about the team/sport/league/etc — but I was really hoping the Cubbies would lose.  The story is SO MUCH more interesting that way.  Especially once Game 7 went into a rain delay and extra innings.  (Remember, the Cubs were down 3 games to 1 at one point in the World Series.)

Oh well.

Congrats, Cubbies fans.  Now, you're just the same as all the others fans.
