A Shellacking and Missing the Pain
Most people look at that and think a football score.
That was Atlanta giving the Cubs a shellacking.
I don't know about you but what I saw was the same Cubs team from last year; overconfident yet under performing pitching (this means you Z), bad base running (yes, you, Chad Tracy), bad fielding (*ahem* Theriot) and an overpriced left-fielder going 0-4 with TWO strikeouts (SORIANO!!!).
Alas, the pain of being a Cubs fan has returned and no later then on the first game of the season!
For those of you that know me, my favorite movie of ALL TIME is Swingers (so much so that I named a blog after the catch phrase...but that's neither here nor there) but there's this scene where Rob is consoling Mikey about his breakup;
Mikey: "How did you get over it? How long did it take?"
Rob:"You wake up every day and it hurts a little bit less and you wake up one day and it doesn't hurt at all. The funny thing is, and this is kinda weird, but you almost miss that pain."
Mikey: "You miss the pain?"
Rob: "Yeah for the same reason you miss her, because you lived with it for so long."
I think Rob was a Cubs fan.
