Dodgers Crash Out of Playoffs, Cubs Fans Steeple Fingers and Guffaw Like Mr. Burns

. Thursday, October 16, 2008


For the second year in a row, the team that swept us in the NLDS has choked out of the playoffs like Mama Cass on a ham sandwich. The Phillies continued their dominant October by smacking the Dodgers 5-1 to take the NLCS in decidedly ho-hum fashion. Which means that right about now, diehard Dodgers fans (I think there are a couple) are asking the same questions of their team with quivering, grief-shaken voices. Those questions being 79 different iterations of "what the fuck ... I mean, what. the. fuck?" And as we are wont to do, we Cubs fans drank in the delicious schadenfreude by dancing over the corpse of Manny Being Manny.


Nomar makes the traditional "sorry for making the last out of this god-awful series" gesture

But really, as happy as I am that the team who stomped us is now disappointed themselves, should we really be all that happy over it? What it boils down to is that for the second time in two years, the Cubs were crap-hammered in the first round by a team that wasn't even the best in the NL, much less baseball. All this while the Tampa Bay Rays and that bald tard Dick Vitale are whooping it up every time they hit another dinger off of a Red Sox pitcher on their way to the World Series. It's enough to drive one to drink ... drain cleaner.

How appropriate that Nomar made the last out - a silly little pop up. I'm just glad that I don'thave to suffer through any more Manny wigs in the crowd.
