Anarchists Brunch: They Don’t Boo Bad Players
I have to say I had a healthy chuckle that there was any snickering or snide comments, either from within greater Cubdom or without, about the Cubs celebrating their playoff berth yesterday. A chuckle was better than shock. So if I have this straight, and I’m sure that I don’t, the other nine teams that make the playoffs get to celebrate their spots in the postseason this way but the Cubs don’t because… well I’m not sure. Because they didn’t hang around their clubhouse for eight hours until the Giants-A’s game finished on Friday night? Because they lost Friday and Saturday, which somehow negates the 154 games of work before it that got them there which is what they’re actually celebrating? Or were people miffed because the Cubs are just better at celebrating stuff than others? Because we know the Cubs party better than pretty much any other team. And what’s wrong with that?
