The Chicago Cubs haven't swung their way this far into the play-offs since 1908. And I've never cared much about baseball. I guess some things can change.
Though you'd think that something as rudimentary as body clock adjustments would have an easier time doing so. Never the less, it's 5:36 local Danish time, which shouldn't really matter after almost a week at Chicago time, but it does.
I shouldn't complain, however. It's been a wonderful week. Cold, but sunny and clear. Work, but inspiring and nearing completion. Wait, but fulfilling at delivery.
Yearh, that last part would indeed be a reference to my new 17" PowerBook with 1GB of RAM and an Xbench score that blows away most hardware with an Apple logo on it.
"The Chicago Cubs haven't swung their way this far into the play-offs since 1908." Funny, I distincly remember them losing the NLCS to the Giants in 1989. Isn't that the same round they've reached now?
"The Cubs hadn't won a playoff series in 95 years. But now they have Kerry Wood and Mark Prior. The duo combined for all three of their wins in the NLDS, including Wood's gem to knock out the Braves 5-1 in Sunday's Game 5 clincher.", says ESPN.com.
Ah, yes. In 1989, there were only two divisions and no wildcard and hence no divisional series before the NLCS. So, the Cubs have gotten this far before, but not by winning a playoff series, but by winning their division. Anyway, congratulations, can't wait for the Cubs vs. Red Sox world series.
