The Magic Number Is Zero
Steve Goodman-A Dying Cub Fan's Last Request
As some of you may have noticed, I haven't said much about baseball this year. My reason for this has been simple: I didn't dare jinx anything by mentioning that the Cubs have been spectacular this year. I know how these things work, how the minute I blog about Carlos Zambrano pitching a no-hitter, the Cubs suddenly stop winning games and fail to make it into the post-season. Call me superstitious (or call me a baseball fan, it's the same thing really).
So I just want it to be clear that all I am doing with this blogpost is passing along the information that the Cubs clinched the Central Division Title this afternoon. That's it. Nothing more.
