    This scenario caused no end of trouble for Charlie Brown, back in June of ‘73…

    Hey, even a blind pig finds an acorn once in a while. A Cubs championship could happen. In recent seasons they’ve been good and they’ve been bad, and while they probably won’t take their Division THIS year, they’re no longer PERPETUAL cellar-dwellers.

    And as long as they beat the Cardinals, I’m happy.

    (McCoy’s in Illinois, but he’s downstate, and I suspect he’s one of those turncoat Cardinal fans. As a downstater myself, my home town was split between Blue Hats (the Good Guys) and Red Hats (the Bad Guys); you had to be one or the other, and you couldn’t be both.)

    fritziod: He is definitely a cards fan. There’s a Cards banner in the tree to his right. Being from Minnesota I am, of course, a Twins fan.

    That Baseball also rises is about the only good news these days.

    Oh, and the alleged warmer weather that comes with it.

    Didn’t notice the banner in the tree, junco. I guess McCoy and I are forever fated to be on opposite sides of the eternal Blue/Red divide. If we were Gangstas, he’d be a Blood and I’d be a Cripp.

    Radish, it’s more a Yin-Yang thing, a blending and/or reconcilliation of opposites. There’s so much Blue in the Reddest of us, and so much Red in the Bluest.

    Actually the colors I give Coyote have evolved over the years, but I now have the Blue and Red version tattooed on my chest, which is a strong inducement to consider this the Final Form.

    Pffft! Cubs suck. Go Sox.

    Glenn has used Cards paraphernalia in many past ‘toons.

    American League isn’t real baseball. Baseball is played with nine men on a side, not ten.

    Concerning the Cardinals, not only do they wear red rather than blue, but they’re named after a bird. What’s up with that?!?

    Besides, prfesser, those other Cardinals are still in College.

    I have to admit, though, even naming your baseball team after birds is better than naming your hockey team after leaves. (Or is it “leafs”?)

    I guess “The Toronto Dryer Lint” would have been too hard to draw into a logo.

    Not at all. My preference for Blue over Red and my support for the Democrats over the Republicans both predate the arbitrary assignment of “Blue States” and “Red States.” As far as I can recall, before (perhaps) the 2000 elections, the networks hadn’t adhered to any particular, standardized color-coding of their electoral maps.

    Of course, I won’t deny that having the colors fall where they currently are prevents a certain amount of cognitive dissonance on my part. But even if the Party Colors were reversed and the GOP was the “Blue Faction”, I’d still disagree with just about every position they take (at least on those positions where there is a split).

    Of course, TCL, as a Cubs fan I also believe we should rip all the field lights out of all the ballparks, and only play day games.

    Citizens United for Baseball in the Sunshine! (C.U.B.S.)

    TCL, I hope you know there wouldn’t be any Montreal Canadians without québecois!

    Beebee Doodle says; Trivia; The Montreal Canadiens were created in 1909. Back then, the word “québecois” wasn’t in wide use to designate french canadians (those living in Quebec, that is). French-canadians (except Acadians, whose name went back to the 1600s) would simply call themselves “canadiens” while their english-speaking counterparts called themselves “canadians”. Back then, frenchies were not really city-dwellers. French was mainly spoken in the countryside among “habitants” (peasants). To this day of corporate-owned sports, hi-tech stadiums and foreign players who don’t know a word of french, the nickname for the Montreal Canadiens is still “Habs”, short for “habitants”.
