Welcome to another Snippet Wednesday.
I have decided this season to become an impassioned baseball fan. And who am I going to get behind? Well, my Cubbies of course. I know I questioned my loyalty in recent seasons, but I do think I've finally nailed down why I was so apathetic. That "why" is former Manager Lou Pinella. Maybe it's because I'm on the outside looking in, but he always struck me as not giving a damn. He always came across as way too laissez-faire for the team's own good. No fire. No passion. Sure, they made the playoffs a couple seasons in a row, but only to have their clocks cleaned in the first round.
