This was me when I woke up this morning:
Because, I mean, the Rangers lost Game 1 of the World Series and we are also edging dangerously close to 2012, when *looks around suspiciously and then whispers* the world might end. It was a depressing feeling. There was also the fact that MLB has announced their bringing back the Fan Cave for 2012, which can only be called a headdesk move. And another sure sign that the world is ending next year. Yeah.
Then I started scrolling through tweets and… this was me after I saw a certain tweet.
Why the sudden change of mood (and hair color and clothes), you ask?
I heard The News about the Cubbies. That Epstein is probably going, which is fine, but then I heard that Jed Hoyer is going too. Too! Also! They’re going to be together!
You know that scene in Cyrano De Bergerac (the 1990 one, with Gérard Depardieu) where Roxanne keeps fainting over and over again because she is so overwhelmed by the letters Christian sends her? That was me. Minus the fainting. Just the overwhelmed part.
Because, in case this was a little known fact, I love Epstein and Hoyer. I think they’re both basically brilliant and the idea of them working together is already making me visualize a Giants/Cubs 2013 NLCS. Which San Francisco would win, of course, but it would still be awesome for Chicago. And then maybe when the Giants are all sick of winning the Cubs can break their billy-goat curse or whatever. In any case, I am really, really looking forward to watching them over the next few years. This should be fun.
p.s. Tally of people who gave me strange looks when I wore my antlers around town before the game yesterday?
