Sister, Sister

This is weird.

My team? In the playoffs.

My boyfriend's team? Playoffs.

My sister's team? Hello, playoffs!

I'm not really worried about who would win a Cubs v. Red Sox World Series, because as everyone knows, that was long ago predicted as one of the seven signs of the apocalypse, and so all my friends and I would be dead and swimming in the lake of eternal hellfire while a blue-faced Mel Gibson whips us and calls us "sugartits" and we are forced to watch the complete Lethal Weapon canon for the rest of eternity.

My vision of hell is very Gibson-specific.

Anyhoo, I'm not so worried about the series as I am a scenario in which my team meets my sister's team in the next round of the playoffs.

This could trigger a sibling rivalry not seen between us since we discovered DSW only had one navy blue distressed leather Firenze hobo bag left on clearance.

As I recall, I won that battle.

Don't mattah, the friggin' Sox are gonna take it all! This is their yeah, baby!!

Skylers Dad said...

Ah yes, the epic hobo bag battle. Kristi claims she would have been victorious had you not pulled down that Dolce & Gabbana display in front of her.

Well played Vikki...

Spooney Spellbad said...

BTW,This is their year...not their yeah.

Chris said...

In 2003, I got my hopes up too high. I temporarily forgot that, at the end of the day, these were the Cubs. I'm not letting it happen again. Maybe by showing my indifference, they'll find success.

Pff! Who am I kidding?

By the way, you should talk to Flannery. I think you two share the same vision of hell.

Grant Miller said...

The Cubs? You're kidding me, right?

Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein said...

I'm a Bosox guy but this time around I'm rooting for Da Cubs.

Spooney: I thought "yeah" was Masshole for "year."

SkyDad: At least those prissy-ass Italians are good for something.

Chris: You think your indifference will affect the Cubs' quest for defeat? You've been away from Chicago too long, pal.

Grant: Jesus, Grant. I lived, like a half mile from the park. I'm not made of stone.

Dr. MVM: Believe me, nothing will prevent you from rooting for them both.

My first words ever to my son, when he was born at Columbus Hospital, a little over a mile from Wrigley Field, were: "Remember, son-- the Cubs are bums! He finally seems to be listening, after 13 years. He's refusing to get too excited yet.

The other night, when San Diego and Colorado were playing their one-game playoff, I kept looking up the score on-line, since not one of the sports channels carried the damned game. I was heartbroken when the Padres went up 8-6. A little while later, I looked it up again and saw that the Rockies had rallied and won 9-8. I was ecstatic. I will never forgive or forget 1984.

I've been a Cubs fan most of my life. That's what you happens when you grow up in northern Indiana (although I liked the Reds too). I also went to opening day when the Rockies first played in Denver and have become a fan. So it will be one tough choice for me if it comes down to that in Round 2.

Bridezilla was just here for the weekend - she and Spanky could not shut up about the Dbacks, so there's a reason to root for the Cubs but like JYen said, let's not get too excited... yet!

Bubs said...

You're a member of Cub Nation? No kidding?

Well, when the Evil Genius visited Chicago last weekend, it was for a friend's wedding. A friend who finally settled into a long-term relationship after a distinguished career as, let's just say, quite the ladies' man. We always said that ____ getting married would be one of the signs of the apocalypse, and that happened. So the Cubs winning the Series' could be just around the corner. Maybe we should all get our affairs in order.

I'm not into baseball, but I'm laughing my ass off picturing J-Yen whispering to his newborn baby, "The Cubs are bums!" What a way to come into the world.

Jess said...

Heh, Spooney, I thought you wrote "yeah" on purpose too. Only, I wondered why you didn't write "This is theyah yeah."

It's too bad baseball is so boring to watch on TV, 'cause I'd be tempted to have a... a... (um, what's the equivalant of the Superbowl but for baseball?) final-baseball-game party. You & Jeff against Spooney & me. Cubs vs. Sox. Chicago vs. Boston. We'd TOTALLY throw down!
