There Can Be Only One

I was invited to attend a rally today for Chicago's 2016 Olympics bid. But I didn't go.

And who do you think just happened to show up?
"It's a good time to be in Chicago," presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama said to the cheering crowd. "The White Sox are winning. The Cubs are winning. And Chicago's going to win the 2016 Olympics."
Obama is stepping onto dangerous ground there, trying to project benevolence to both the Sox and the Cubs.  If you live in Chicago you're supposed to pick one of them and stick it to the other!

By birthright, I'm opposed to the Cubs,
in practice and in theory.

But they've suffered through 99 years of flubs,
so just this once I hope they win the Series.
