Reluctant cheerleader

The World Series has me in a real dilemma.

Fact #1: I greatly dislike the White Sox. Or rather, I’m no fan of their fans who, you can be sure, would not be cheering on the Cubs if by some cosmic anomaly they made it to the World Series.

Fact #2: I love Chicago and I love that any of our sports teams is so dominant.

Fact #3: I am married to a woman with a great deal of family in Houston (more since Katrina) and so
must deal with a large pro-Houston lobby.

I suppose it is better than a Sox-Cardinals series. That would have been too much for any Cubs fan.

Grandpa’s gonna spin in his grave, but … Go Chicago!
