A Letter From a Cubs Fan

From my friend BC:

Dear Baseball Gods,

Just wanted to let you know that I am well aware that since I wrote an email last Friday proclaiming that “this team is fucking invincible,” the Cubs have not won a game. So, yeah, I get it: Everything is contingent, there are no fixed stars, therefore but the grace of God, etc., etc. Message received, valuable life-lesson learned, and I hereby promise not to get too high or too low on this team from here on out. So there’s no need for you to keep fucking with the Cubbies, or hurt my favorite player in all the world; you’ve proved your point and I pledge to approach both baseball and life in general with more humility. Okay? We cool now?

Yours in equanimity,
