Words cannot begin to explain how unbelievably daunted I felt around the beginning of December. This is about the time the (hated) Chicago Cubs became serious suitors for the services of the spectacular Jake Peavy.
Hey, did you hear the Cubs are trading for Jake Peavy??
Don’t worry, that trade is most likely dead!!
I must admit, I’m not the cat type, but his (or her…how can you tell?) face says it all.
With Peavy, the Cubs would easily top 100 wins in ’09 and become an absolute powerhouse in the National League.
(they appeared to be just posing as powerhouses last year)
Did you know that Cubs is actually an acronym?
Heard that one already, eh?
Now, understand…I’m not the type that wishes ill will upon anyone.
I don’t have a Cubs voodoo doll at home.
But come on…it’s the Cubs!!
I must conclude this on a positive note…
Moises!! You were so close!!
Only a team like the Cubs would blame their losing ways on one of their own dedicated and diehard fans. What’ s a fan supposed to do when he sees a ball coming at his head? Duck out of the way like a ninny? Or, jump up like a stud and grab the damn thing?!!
Poor Bartman…Milwaukee is only 90 miles north.
Heck, I’ll even show him around.
Sorry, small tangent.
Back to this man…
JAKE – DO NOT APPROVE A TRADE TO THE CHICAGO CUBS!
Either stay in San Diego or come to beautiful Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

If you haven’t noticed, the Chicago Cubs bring out the worst in me.
