Wild Race

If you're one of the baseball fans among my readers, you must know that this final weekend of the regular season promises some great drama. In the National League, with three games left, not a single team has clinched one of the four playoff spots. As my dad said this morning, "Not one team, after 159 games. That's mathematically incomprehensible."

The team that looks to be in the best shape (despite the fact that they keep losing) is the Chicago Cubs, who hold a two-game lead in their division. The Chicago Tribune caught up with big Cubs fan Bill Murray before a game the other day (thanks to JF for the link), and this is part of what he had to say:
Bill, there's a theory out there that the Cubs wouldn't be the Cubs if they win the World Series.

That's like saying you wouldn't be you if you were asleep. Isn't that exactly what it's like? I don't accept that (theory), because the Cubs have already won five World Series, and they are the Cubs. Would the Cubs be the Cubs if they lost the World Series? That's sick thinking. You've got to watch out for people like that. I should be watching you. Maybe you want to talk to me later about what's going on in your life.
