Last weekends two crushing extra inning defeats to Albert, followed by yesterday’s 7th consecutive Cubs loss has left me despondent about the Northside nine. I don’t know about you, but in this situation I could use a little humor right about now. So it is that I turn to my fellow Cubs brethren from the interblogs for a little pick me up.
Before going any further, I should have some sort of disclaimer here, like the kind you see at the beginning of movies. Something to the effect that: Any opinions, reflections, or characterizations of the current state of the Chicago Cubs (hereafter referred to as the “ball club”) expressed by the writers on other blogs or message boards do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the Boys of Spring staff which shall hereafter be referred to as “Tim”. The reader hereby acknowledges by reading further, they continue at their own risk and hereby release Tim of any liability or damages due to mental suffering caused by continued exposure to this blog. OK, off to the interblogs….
I wrote the first two paragraphs before actually going out into the Cubs blogosphere to find some misery loves company Cubs humor. Now I see that I should have surfed the interblogs first, because what I found mainly are Cubs fans/bloggers who like me are despondent, disappointed, or just down right angry. I also found many a Cubs blog that are no longer operating (dead URL) or haven’t posted in a long time (years in some cases). There were a few humorous takes on the Cubs current state of affairs but I guess I didn’t find them overly funny. At any rate, I’ve decided not to post the not so funny or angry and disappointed snippets about the Cubs from other blogs, I’m sure you have enough of those feelings yourself.
I guess what this means is there really isn’t much of a blog here today. Sure I could give an opinion of the Cubs 2011 ill’s but since it’s still early June, I’ll hold off on that. Most of the issues with the Cubs are fairly obvious and were pointed out recently in a calm locker room statement by Carlos Zambrano. Besides the neighbors dog is barking incessantly and has been for some time, making my only current thoughts devoted to how I might get it to shut up. If I could somehow get that canine to read this blog, that might do the trick.
We have some exciting Boys of Spring/Cubs related news of a positive nature coming later this week, so check back for that.
