I’m so depressed. Well, I’m more tired than depressed, but I feel the depression so much more.

Then I got this e-mail from the Cubs...
Tickets for 2004 National League Division Series games at Wrigley Field will go on sale on
Monday, October 4th at 9:00 a.m. CT.

Tickets can be purchased online at cubs.com.

Each customer will be allowed to purchase one (1) order of up to four (4) tickets.

Tickets can be purchased by telephone through Tickets.com beginning at 9:00 a.m. CDT.

The Tickets.com phone number for Illinois callers is 800-The-Cubs (800-843-2827).

The phone number for out-of-state callers is 866-652-2827.

Based on today's National League Standings, if the Cubs win the Wild Card, Game 3 of the best-of-five Division Series would be played at Wrigley Field on Saturday, October 9th and Game 4 (if necessary) would be played at Wrigley on Sunday, October 10th.

However, the ultimate schedule, including game times, will be determined at a later date.
If only wishing made it so. If only...


The Cubs aren’t doing it on the field, so I’m going to show some balls for them right here on this blog.

Here’s some recent pictures of me to set the mood for what I’m about to say.

Here’s me doing my best Eugene impression.

Here’s me fresh off of work tonight, with my hair pulled back in a ponytail.

Here’s the top of my dome, covered by what nature hasn’t taken already.

Here’s a side profile.

And here’s the aforementioned ponytail.

And if the Cubbies can manage to make it into the playoffs, I’m gonna cut that sumbitch off!

...And I ain’t gonna stop there....

If the Cubs can somehow manage to make it to the playoffs, I’m going to shave my head completely bald!!!

This is the portion of the program where my wife and Skippy turn the channel and say “Been there. Done that.” This is true. But that was at least five years ago, and Jay Buhner had already done most of the work for them.

This time, I don’t think it will come back.

But it would be a price worth paying to give the fates the motivation they need to intervene and give us another month of baseball.

We’ve fought too hard (at least most of us have). We’ve earned the right to see this come to fruition.

So come on Cubbies... I wanna feel the wind blowing (out to left) through my stubble.

Make it happen. I still believe.
