What says Opening Day more than double-fisting some cans o’ Old Style, shotgunning ’em down and grabbing two more? I can’t believe it’s here again, what a punishing slap of reality. It must mean spring is here, eh? No, not really. Well anyway, I’d like to make my annual prediction of a championship season for the Cubs, one that opens with a 100-game winning streak and ends with a 62-game winning streak, but time and history have jaded me. Let’s go easy and say: 98-game winning streak followed by a loss in extra innings and a rain-out, and then 62 wins to close it out. Sounds reasonable?
Maybe I’m asking for too much.
