100 Years And Counting
There are those that say sports are like life and they are right. It's a cliche but it's a cliche because it's true. Cliches best explain the life/sport similarities as well - expect the unexpected and there's no such thing as a sure thing. Watching the best Cubs team to take the field since 1908, suddenly shrivel into a shadow of themselves and roll over in 3 games to the Dodgers proves the point. Maybe it was coaching, poor play, coincidence or a curse, but no matter the 'why', you couldn't have honestly seen it coming. We learned a long time ago and many times since that sports, like life, is a roll of the dice.
