Forgive me if I come across as a sourpuss in this week's column. But I'm a Cubs fan which, almost by definition, tends to make one dour.
That sentiment was magnified this weekend, as the Cubbies swept the Baltimore Orioles at Wrigley Field.
"Wait a minute," you might be thinking. "Isn't a trio of victories a cause for celebration?"
Not in Cubs World, my friends.
You see, in that magical (albeit not wonderful) place, the Cubs have a way of torching things by winning.
