IT’S SO CUBS
Paul Sullivan writes in today’s Tribune that after blowing a 4-0 lead and losing to the Reds 5-4, the Cubs did not seem affected by such a loss.
But the postgame clubhouse wasn’t gloomy; players observed the annual rookie hazing ritual in which rookie players dress up in silly costumes for the plane ride home.
“Today really stinks,” Eyre said. “It’d be fun to laugh with all these rookies dressing up. I find it hard to laugh right now… but I will in about 10 minutes.”
Forgive broadcaster Ron Santo and some of the old-school coaches for not laughing along with the players. With the coaches’ jobs on the line and the Cubs continuing to find new ways to lose, the veteran players could not have picked a more inappropriate time to haze the kids.
That’s so Cubs. I’d bet they spent more time preparing for that garbage than studying opposing hitters.
