I Shoulda Known Better

My post – “Temperature Rising” – was pie in the sky. Unreasonable expectation.  The light is out. The candle is extinguished. The day is done. The season is over. The Cubs once again have flopped.  Badly. 

The high hopes had yawned and awakened. That sudden rocket red glare of enthusiasm that came with the October 5th game against the Pirates.  Air pumped into a long flat tire.  But the flame has been doused. Cold water. Ice water. I mean losing 4 games in a row?? Come ON.  My tear-stained TV Forecast now gathers dust on the television.  Knuckles drag on the ground.  A sad face greets the world.  The Cubs have done it again.  The goat is alive and well. 

BUT. . .  just wait ’til next year. . . .

    I came into this world on March 17, 1945. The wars in Europe and the Pacific were shortly concluded. The Cubs went on to win the National League pennant in October of that salient year. I have long thought that I would go out when they won it the next time. It appears that I’ll be here for another twelve months. Small comfort. S.
