    Why are these goats smiling?

    I think we all know why. It's that time of year again.

    The scrubs will be knocked out of the first round of playoffs. You heard it here first.

    I truly am hoping for the Cubs and Rays to meet in the WS and to have the Cubs down 3 games to 2 and a lead heading into the top of 9, only to see it blown and the Rays to win it, in Chicago, celebrate on their field and on the 100th year anniversary. A boy has to have a dream doesn't he?

    Or how about the Cubs taking a 3-0 lead in the World Series and having the lead in game four only to blow it in the 9th inning and go on to lose the final four games. That would be incredibly hilarious.

    The only bad part is the Cubs fans at the park wouldn't experience it because the game would take place in Tampa.

    You must really have it in for Piniella with that wish. Think of the bitter irony he would face from getting beat on his current home field by the hometown team whose clubhouse he left behind.

    Sweet Lou is just a casualty of war with this one.

    I love the big lug, but this is the Cubs we're talkin' about here.

    I love Sweet Lou, but my hatred for the Cubs far outweighs my love for Sweet Lou.

    I'm for whatever maximizes the suffering of Cubs fans.

    It goes way beyond that.

    It's the civic duty of all right thinking Americans to hate all things Cubbie.

    With the notable exception of our own BCubb, of course.

    My father and his brothers are going to the game Sunday. If someone accidentally spills Pepsi on one of their Cubs jerseys, I would be fine with it.

    I despise all things Cubbie.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Bartman rides in on a goat in a Rays uni to throw out the 1st pitch the final game.
