What is it with the Cubs and playoff opponents from the Left Coast? Does The Hound have to refresh everyone's memory about what happened in 1984 against the San Diego Padres? How about '89 versus the San Francisco Giants. There's something going on here and there's only one explanation: Deep gris-gris.
Did The Hound fail to mention that Arizona is just a few quakes away from being beachfront and what happened when the Diamondbacks and Cubs met in the playoffs last year? Those snakes swept the Cubs.
There's only one thing to break this spell. If your heading to Wrigley Field today, grab your mojo bag and take it to the ballpark. The Z Train may need it.
Or, you could travel to the Wildfish restaurant on Waukegan Road in Deerfield and have the Cubs/Sox Celebration sushi combo which includes a Sox Roll, freshwater eel and black tobiko over spicy scallop, cucumber and avocado, and a Cubs Roll, special spicy tuna roll. That's enough raw stuff to scare any voodoo doll away.
