Lose, don't excuse

At the risk of ticking off several people that I respect highly, I'd like to make the following statement.


If it makes you feel better to blame some poor guy because on one play he went after a foul ball (like that never ever happens), and your team blew it big time, then knock yourselves out. But you're overreacting like toddlers throwing a temper tantrum.

The luckiest man in the world today is the Cubs shortstop, who committed an error that nobody seems to remember...

Oh, I remember it! But it makes me feel better to blame the error on his being upset over the fan interference preventing the second out. ;)

LOL I know, it's just been the only freakin' topic of conversation all damn day on TV, radio, at work...

He also did what every other fan there would have done. period. He paid his money and caught the ball. Good for him.

Alex Gonzales (the Cubs shortstop) owes that guy a nice Christmas card for saving him from a Bill Buckner-like fate.
