Did anyone read this article in the Sun Times: 5 Reasons to Believe in the Cubs .

http://www.suntimes.com/output/cubs/cst-spt-kiley29.html

It's actually quite funny. This is my favorite part:

"But if Baker's contention comes true, it will be because Sosa and Alou had spectacular finishes. These good buddies now have a daily routine in which they hug when they first encounter one another in the clubhouse."

Aint that Cute!!!! If only Pauly and Frank would hug each and every day, we, too, would have a reason to believe in the Sox.

Do people actually believe this drivel???

This hugging thing is strange. It actually began this year in Boston. Manny Ramirez would hug (and still is) his teammates instead of the usual high five, fist bump,etc...I don't know if it is a Dominican thing, but it caught me off guard watching the NESN broadcasts.

I wanted to puke when I read that line...Kiley somehow makes me hate the Cubs more everyday.

Next step: Sosa and Alou French kiss each other on the dugout steps when one of them hits one out.

Somehow I don't think Manny is doing it because it is a "Dominican thing". More likely he is just trying to cop a feel...

Well, that will increase local attendance to the game.

I guess the Cubs feel as though they have already established the straight demographic. Now they are targeting the homosexuals. Smart business tactic!

For instance, Lofton was made uncomfortable while he was being interviewed after his three-hit effort Sunday by an X-rated compact disc that was playing on the clubhouse stereo. He feared microphones would pick up the raw language in the background and people might confuse his words with those profanities. He stopped talking until the music was turned off.

lofton already hates sammy's music. excellent

I thought ALL Cub players and fans frenched!

No wonder Billy Beane (not the GM) wanted to be a Cub

I doubt that was Sammy's music. Sosa blasts salsa music. I'm not too familiar with salsa, but I don't think it has a lot of vulgar words.

It's hard to believe anybody could give Mike Downey a run for his money, but Mike Kiley, as long as he continues to churn out BS articles like this, he's going to remain on top as the worst sports writer in Chicago.
