And you know what? I feel for them.
The Dodgers beat the Cubs last night 6-0 and it wasn’t pretty. Jake Arrieta just didn’t have it and it just seemed like every time I left the room to get a drink or water or hit the head, the Dodgers were scoring another one.
My son’s rooting hard for the Cubs, but when it became 4-0, he fell asleep, I guess subliminally feeling like the Cubs couldn’t come back. I get it… it’s tough.
I am saying it now and I’m saying it proud. I want to see the Cubs win even though I am no fan of Joe Maddon. His arrogance bothers me and I guess he’s arrogant because he’s good. But I want to see the Cubs get there… and win for the history of the game. I like this team. I appreciate guys like Arrieta, Rizzo and Bryant. It’s a fun team to watch. Let’s hope they can turn it around.
No recap… just the personal facts here… Cubs need to win, because my kid wants it that way.
Final: Dodgers 6 – Cubs 0
