Theo Epstein may break the fabled curse once and for all! I w ...[text shortened]... ght on Steve Bartman. what a weird sad episode that was! After the Rangers I go for the Cubs.
Napoli's having an outstanding playoffs! Sorry to get off topic but yes, the whole Bartman thing was sad.
That show kinda put things in perspective. I do think Alou would have caught that ball, but Bartman wasn't the only one that reached out. And it's not his fault that the Cubs blew that series. Heck, they still had a game 7 after that. No excuse there. That play just symbolized where it all started to unravel. And us Cubs fans are very passionate, but our emotion got the best of us that night. I wouldn't wish what Bartman went through on anyone. so hopefully they can win one soon and we can put the Bartman thing to rest, and the black cat, and the goat. lol There's no damn curse!!! I think.
