Dusty, MacPhail Out, Grossman In

This just in, breaking, developing rapidly… Rex Grossman is set to become Cubs manager and Team President after his performance last night against the Seattle Seahawks, sources say. “He can do no wrong, why the hell not?” said one solid insider, as he drank the rest of his Old Style and crushed the cup on the ground.

Ok, maybe I’m just fired up. Grossman and the Bears officially crossed the line last night into that fabled territory known as “Contenders” with their impressive shellacking of the Super Bowl runner-up Seahawks. As the only undefeated team in the NFC, they showed a national television audience what they’ve got, and it was nothing short of dominant. The Bears even unveiled a new wrinkle in their attack, something which I am told is called the “forward pass.” Whatever it is, I like it!

And yes, of course, Dusty is gone, as expected and MacPhail resigned, not as expected, and the White Sox quietly ended their season watching the Minnesota Twins celebrate the division title. That’s gotta hurt. I also happened to notice that both New York teams finished with identical 97-65 records, the best in the Majors. That kind of shit pisses me off a little bit. How dare they? Don’t they have enough?

Anyway, the Bears are the story here, and things are looking good. Their combination of brutal, violent defense and smooth, confident offense is something that we haven’t seen in a long time around here. And the kicker is perfect too, so far. If you’re not into now, you should be; this only happens once every twenty years or so, at best. I sense something special here with this team, just four games in, and with each week it’s only going to build. If it all plays out right, it’ll be just like magic.

    I was watching the news yesterday while they were talking about McPhail and Dusty. The closed captioning was on (I was at the gym) and when McPhail’s name came across the screen it read “McFail”. I almost bust out laughing. That’s been his nickname for a while, but seeing it on the news was a hoot.
