That's not very likely, even for the Cubs.
And I feel very ho-hum about the whole thing.
In 2007 the Cubs were in a tight fight for the division. It came down to the last weekend of the season, a three game series in Cincinnati. Mrs WW, WW Jr, and I were all caught up with pennant fever and we spent the weekend in Cincinnati. We saw two Cubs wins in a ballpark that was mostly blue, not red. It was very exciting.
I feel little if any of that excitement right now. The Cubs have been so good all season long that winning the division has been a foregone conclusion since just after the All Star break.
I watch almost every game, and I enjoy watching them. But winning is no longer a surprise. It is an expectation. And when they lose, I don't feel like the bottom is falling out. I expect them to win the next day.
At this point, its not the regular season that matters. It's the post season. And for that, I feel anything but ho-hum. That's where I'm afraid the bottom will fall out.
They've played so good for so long...can they keep it up throughout the month of October?
That is what gets me excited. I sure hope the season ends with a win.
