BECAUSE IT’S SO FREAKING COLD!!!!!
If the Luck Dragon smiles on Carlos Pena‘s BABIP . . .
If Mike Quade actually is the Luck Dragon . . .
If Albert Pujols gets angry and only takes it out on his own team (and occasionally the Brewers and Reds) . . .
If a whole bunch of other really awesome things go just right for the Cubs . . .
The Cubs could seriously contend in 2011.
BUT . . .
Well, that’s an awfully big but. And if you like that sort of thing, this is your year. And this is your song.
Because I don’t know that words will convey my current feelings on the Cubs quite precisely enough (I mean, the pre-Spring-Training pangs are so nebulous, so elusive, so coincidental to the ebb and flow of blogger lethargy), I’ll be relying on the power of music to get the point across. First up, fittingly I suppose, Chicago.
Still want Cubs tickets? They’re having a sale! Here’s the gist:
This Friday, Feb. 11, a six-pack plan goes on sale. Six-ticket packages starting at about $100 plus taxes, fees, and what-are-you-looking-at? surcharges.
The Cubs have lifted their ban on the Saturday, June 18 game against the Yankees. A new 13-game plan featuring the previously unreleased tickets goes on sale now, NOW! Prices start at ZOMDR!
The MasterCard pre-sale is back and exactly the same as ever! Wednesday, Feb. 23 and Thursday, Feb. 24 will give fans the opportunity to spend more than they otherwise would for tickets no one else will be willing to buy. Hurry!
Plain-old vanilla single-game tickets will go on sale Friday, Feb. 25. You can buy them online or by joining the teeming severals of fans who like to wear wristbands and avoid the mass ticket-agent surcharges. They’ll be selling tickets by phone, too, because some people apparently still use those.
Happy money losing!
Okay, that’s totally jaded of me. I still love the Cubs. I hope they win lots and that the tickets are all worth every penny. But . . . *
