Am I remembering this wrong? About when the Sox won it all in 2005? Wasn't there a lot of griping (or maybe just scratching of heads) about how the "other team" won it first? Everyone was happy -- as in "I'm happy for you." And that was about it.
I'm happy for Steve Bartman. I really hated Cubs fans during the whole ugly, ugly Bartman episode. How despicable. Blaming the team's ineptitude on an innocent who did what we all would do instinctively? That's about as bush as it gets. So I hope Steve is excited about the Series. I hope he has a good seat -- even if it's still in his den.
I'm happy for my friend Myles who got tickets for Sunday's game! He's taking his superfan son. Yes, he reached deep into the bank account. But he reached with a grin. I'll try to spot him on TV.
I'm happy for one of my favorite sportscasters : Mike Wilbon. And, of course, Michelle.
I'm happy for you Cubs. You've got a great team and a great manager. I hope -- like the Sox -- you win it all.
