Truer Words Were Never Spoken

Jennifer is hurting, because her Cubbies let her down yet again. It could be worse Jen, my wife's grandmother has suffered through 80-some years of disappointment from those clowns.

And we Giant fans know just how she feels. Check out this hilarious description of the Five Classic Stages of Giants Grief.

G also coins a new phrase that I'll be adding to my lexicon:

"counting on the rockies"

The official definition:

Counting on the rockies - Hoping someone or something will perform a task which benefits you, even though this someone or something is very, very, very unlikely to do so.


“I told Mary to bring the salad for the party.”
“Uh oh. So we’re not going to have a salad?”
“Yeah, I guess I was kind of counting on the rockies.”


Everything this team [Colorado Rockies - RJ] has done in their existence has screwed the Giants. They couldn’t win a single game against the 1993 Braves, and the Giants lost the division by a single game. They lost 13 of 20 to the Diamondbacks in 2001, screwing the Giants. They developed Neifi Perez. In a secret bunker lab beneath a mountain, most likely. Perez hit a homerun against the Giants to prevent them from winning the wild-card in 1998. They couldn’t beat the Astros, and they couldn’t beat the Dodgers. They need no biscuit to roll over and drool on themselves, begging you to itch their bellies. They just do it.

Nah, I'm not bitter. I also don't write nearly as well as he does, so head on over and read it all.

Hey, thank God that the Rocks can screw SOMEONE other than themselves...

and people wonder why I'm a Cubs fan and I've lived in Colorado all my life...I mean, other than the fact that the Rocks didn't even EXIST until 1993...
