Fortnightly Cravings

colonel_sanders_statue.jpgThe WBC has seen an outpouring of international baseball love that seems to be carrying over into transnational baseball interactions. For instance, within the past week, a Japanese baseball team found the drowned statue of Colonel Sanders that had doomed it to playoff failure for the past 24 years and, in an act of selflessness, offered the bearded Kentuckian’s services to the Cubs. But the Cubs have supreme confidence that this really, finally is their year and have declined the offer.

Now, I’m not the most superstitious guy in the world but even I think that after a 100 year drought, maybe it’s time to try something, anything, in hopes that it will finally end the curse. When this is an accurate video representation of your past 100 seasons:

…can the filth stained statue of a recently de-bespectacled purveyor of 11 herbs and spices really make things any worse?

Instead, it appears that the Cubs will continue to rely on the combination of Old Style beer and frat boy loser-dom that has netted them so much success over the last century. Then again, the Colonel and his “finger-lickin’ good” chicken would probably spell disaster for Zambrano so maybe it is a good thing. I never trusted him anyway, with those “wee beady eyes.”

Loved the video! And I don’t know – at the game? I’d rather have a brat & a beer!

Ain’t no chicken good enough to save the sCrUBS.

I can’t believe I used to eat that chicken when I was a kid. My parents thought it was “good” for us. Amazing that I’m still alive.

I was wondering if they may try to change the name to KFG or Kentucky Fried Goat. Oh I forgot this would just prolong and not eliminate the curse, now wouldn’t it?

Is it wrong that everytime I hear music from Barber of Seville, I think of the Bugs Bunny cartoon?
I don’t think the Colonel can save the cubs. They are a perfect tragic opera.
