Baby Bears Endangered

I'll try not to bore you with too much sports talk, and try to restrict myself to just this one entry for now.

The Cubs are down one game to none and down by seven in the bottom of the ninth inning in Game 2 with one out as I type this. I have to admit: I never really saw the Cubs going far in the postseason. Granted, they still have a chance to win three straight, but, frankly, it doesn't look good. In the last bit of the regular season, I saw a club with a weak bullpen and a greatly slowed-down offense. If you're not scoring runs and doing a poor job of limiting the opposition's scoring, you're not going to win many ballgames. I certainly don't enjoy seeing this happening (or hearing it; I prefer to listen to Pat & Ron on the radio), and I can't help but wonder what's going to happen to the team that so exceeded expectations during the season when they're done for the year.

I may spend a bit of time at the High-Flying Bird later. (This is an inside reference to people who might know who they are.)

Okay, I'm done talking Cubs for now. I think.
