Don't blame me for this one --

Bennie, of Ben and Bennie, left this off-topic comment to yesterday's post: "No gloating over the Cubbies loss? I'm severely disappointed!"

I hate to disappoint anyone -- but I didn't want to be accused of being a "hater."


On the other hand, I got this video from both Oldest Son and Middle Son in the past week, so I suppose I have to share it....


And since we're sharing -- well, here's another one I got in the email:

Now, tell me, honestly: Does the rivalry of the Yankees vs. Red Sox or Yankees vs. Mets or Giants vs. Jets even come close to the rivalry of White Sox vs. Cubs?

Is this a time to mention that it's only a game?

Ellee said...

Rugby is the big news here at the moment, is that a game you play too?

Well, I'm not a fan of any of those teams, but I do like the baby :)

Cubbies rule! We had Sweet Lou here in Seattle for many years, and no matter what you might say about him, he knew how to get his team fired up.

I also love the cute baby photo. And since I'm not a Cubs fan I found the video amusing.

Jean-Luc -- I agree. I'm just reporting what's come into my mailbox....

Ellee -- Rugby is played here but it's never caught on as a major sport; it's considered something of an ancestor of American football....

Webduck -- I like Lou and, as I've posted here, I remember him fondly from his days in Seattle (and Tampa) -- and I'd predicted the Cubs to beat Arizona remembering how Sweet Lou roughed up my White Sox in the 2000 playoffs. Maybe he's mellowed too much....
