Anyway, a few weeks ago I wore my Cubs hat for a couple of days. The cubs were running away with things and I thought it was safe. What happened? The immediately lost 8 of 9 games.
Last Friday the Cubs magic number was 1 and they were almost certain to clinch and I wore my Cubs tie to work. Of course they got smacked around by St. Louis and and didn't clinch after all. So I have put my stuff away until the end of October. By then the Cubs should be World Series Champs and I can wear it without any risk.
On Saturday I did not wear any Cubs gear (or MSU and they beat Notre Dame!!!) and the Cubs clinched the Pennant.
