On the Cubs fan and the World Series

Minneapolis Star-Tribune columnist Dan Barreiro, in today's paper, wrote an open letter to Steve Bartman, the Cubs fan who deflected the now-famous foul ball. He's got it exactly right: The Cubs have nobody to blame but themselves for the losses in game 6 and 7.

Personally, I'm truly disappointed that neither the Cubs nor the Red Sox made it into the Series. This seemed to be the year, but both teams choked when the going got tough. The Cubs' collapse was more complete, having blown three consecutive chances to put it away, but the Sox' heartbreaking loss in game 7 came by their own hand as well, having blown a 5-3 lead in the 8th inning.

I doubt I'll be following the Series, and I suspect I'm not alone. Yawn.
