If you love the Cubs and things that are funny, then have I got a deal for you: "100 ... Years of Losing" from pH
Despite today's hiccup in the Cubs' quest for the division title (and beyond), it looks as though they'll clinch it any day now and turn Wrigleyville into Bourbon Street North.
We've written at-length about the myriad signs that this could be the Cubs' year, which prompts us to give pause and pay tribute to those years it simply wasn't. To help with that, there's the Wrigleyville-based comedy group pH, whose final performance of the sketch show "100 ... Years of Losing" takes place this Wednesday at 8 p.m. at the Stage Left Theater just a few blocks south of the Friendly Confines.
It's a known fact that teams who clinch their division tend to phone it in for the remainder of the season until the playoffs begin. So, for those of you who aren't necessarily itching to watch the likes of Koyie Hill, Micah Hoffpauir and Casey McGehee make their cases as to why they shouldn't be relegated to worst-case-scenario appearances throughout the playoffs, "100 ..." is an excellent way to get your pre-playoff Cubs fix.
At least half of Sports Pros(e) (this half) will be in attendance to see (in the spirit of full disclosure) some friends of the blog who populate the cast. We hope to see you there too!
