Those 2 ALDS down 0-2, the 2004 ALCS 0-3, and even last year vs. Cleveland in the ALCS were all great series that epitomized the drama of October baseball. Cubs could add some intrigue to this post-season. Or they could get swept, or in classic Cubs/formerly Red Sox fashion bring the fans to the brink in the final game and screw it up royally. We'll see.
As a Cubs fan I've always employed some form of misguided optimism and this year's no different. I was saying the same thing to my grandmother yesterday, who has basically gone into "Wait 'Til Next Year" mode. My argument was, given all the press on The Curse
and 100 years, the Cubs have got to take a page from the Red Sox playbook and stage some form of miraculous comeback just to make it even the more memorable. Lemonade out of lemons, right? Of course if tonight does not go well I'll skip the mixer and go straight up with the vodka. Death's Door - it seems appropriate.
