Dear Tony, Will you be wearing Cubs colors to Dodger Stadium?

Longtime reader Ralphy 999 says: It appears you are taking the Cubs thing serious. That’s OK, but please don’t wear your Cubs hat and shirt out in the parking lot at Chavez. It could get you seriously hurt. Some of the Dodgers fans are meaner than rattlesnakes. Especially those from the barrios. They take it just as serious as you do. As they have shown in the past.

Dear Ralphy,

Almost every day I wear my Cubs hat. When I don’t I wear a Cubs shirt. Tonight I might even wear Cubs condoms.

I appreciate the energy of Dodger fans, but if anyone understands respect it’s my amigos from the barrios.

Cub fans represent. We may not have tattoos, but we sport the colors. For over a century we have lost so that others may win.

If fans want to forget that very recent history, I will gladly remind them. If they want to throw down, well, I wouldn’t recommend them squaring off against a former XBI agent, especially during the playoffs.

But yes, of course I will be wearing my Cubs hat and my Carlos Zambrano jersey. How would anyone be able to positively I.D. me if something unforeseen goes down?

Speaking of, if someone gets a lucky shot in and that’s it, make sure they play this version of this song at my wake.

the cubs play the dodgers here in LA today and tomorrow and thursday


if you have noticed i havent been blogging very much recently. probably because i have been slightly insane in the membrane.

the Cubs have a very good chance of winning todays game, but still, it’s the Cubs so you never know.

the game is at 5pm. im going. the last time Jake pitched a 5pm game at Dodger Stadium he tossed a no-hitter.

i would very much like to see a playoff no hitter.

i have been trying to do the right thing, prayers, playoff beards, good deeds, lucky hats, lucky cat foods

but it sure would help if mr anthony rizzo and mr addison russell would hit the ball, preferably over the wall

and plunk a palm tree or two.

when i was a youngster i would root for the Dodgers in October because the Cubs were long out of it

id see those palm trees beyond the bullpens at Dodger Stadium

and id say, i want to be there one day, LA

i never imagined id actually be at the playoffs in October there.


and for sure i never thought my Cubs would be here too.


as favorites to win the whole enchilada.

BRB shaving my head

for good luck.
