There's Always Next Year
It’s always disappointing after a loss, but this somehow feels different. There are a lot of what ifs to be asked. The main one is what if the Chicago Bulls did not lose that 19 point lead in the third game. It would have been a totally different series. I’m not disappointed about the season, just about how this series ended with the Detroit Pistons. The Bulls dug themselves in an insurmountable hole and had to play perfect basketball versus a veteran team. But, like we say in Chicago there's is always next year. A new season with hope and this team has the parts to make multiple runs for a title in the following years. There are just a one post player or superstar away from being a compete team. If the bouncing balls of the lottery fall the right way and the Bulls land one of the top two picks in the draft they could add that post player or superstar without giving up any parts of the core.
Now, I’m only left with my beloved Chicago Cubs. So far it has been a disappointing year. The freaking bullpen is killing us. It seems they find a new way how to lose a game just to piss me off. It’s going to be a long year in Cubdom.
