And the twitterverse obliged. Here are a few good ones from Twitter, posted during the game:
@plamorte: I'm way too upset / to even write about #Cubs / in haiku...ohh wait...
@MrFastbucks: Were this a movie / it would be rated R for / intense violence
@ggci: I'd like to get paid / what the #Cubs players get paid / to forget this game.
@TweetsByDina: Turning game off now / I always try to hang in / but can take no more
@gswhite71: So, right about now / Joe Ricketts must be saying / $*&!@! What have I done?
But even Cubs fans have to tip their caps to Troy Tulowitzki, who went 5-for-5 hitting for the cycle. Maybe it was my fault ...
First I tweeted:
Am I being bad / If I want Tulowitzki / To get a triple? (so that we can see SOMETHING ... ANYTHING ... memorable tonight)
Then, moments later:
Well, ain't that something? / Tulowitzki gets cycle / Just what I wanted ... <sigh>
