Apparently, the baseball season hasn’t ended yet. I understand something called the World Series begins today.
For a Cubs fan like me, this comes as a total surprise. I was finished with baseball around the All Star break this year. So imagine my confusion when I drove down my street a couple of days ago and spotted something new and strange leaning against a neighbor’s patio fence.
Last week, there was a cute scarecrow that looked like this:
But no longer. Today I see one more reminder of the pain and futility of being a Cubs fan.
All I can say is, I give my new neighbor credit for her hutzpah in displaying this, um, creature in a community full of Cubs fans.
And wait until next year, Jane! You just wait…
