Game 7, World Series, Cubs ... Armageddon?

Believe it or not, I'm actually working tonight - going to a hastily-organized Cubs-watching party in one of my towns. It means I'll be forced to look at the game, which could be fatal, but it could also provide me with a cover for next week. And, hey, it may be fun. Yes, yes, of course, it could be absolutely heart-breaking, but let's just ignore that for now. 

I'm just going to leave these two videos here, both songs by the late devoted Cubs fan Steve Goodman, one a gently snarky tribute to the team's ability to make us weep, and the other a paean to Cubs' fans boundless optimism. 

Go, Cubs!

Happy Birthday, [personal profile] carbonel !

I was going to wish you a happy birthday in advance, had the Cubs won their Monday game. They lost, and I despaired just a little bit, because it seemed as if they were being ... well ... Cub-ish. 

And then they won last night. I can't think of a nicer thing to watch as your birthday came to an end yesterday. So many happy returns of the day to a Cubs fan, a fanfic fan, a yarn fan, an SF&F fan, and a very lovely person. May this year be the year (although I'm going to throw a kinehora out there just to be sure.)
