What Dodgers fans need to know today about Cubs
There was a big rally -- OK, a couple thousand people -- in downtown Chicago today to cheer on the Cubs, who are starting the playoffs tomorrow at Wrigley Field against the Dodgers.
Even Harry Caray was there.
Of course, two songs won't be enough to overcome the Cubs' tradition of losing -- 100 years of it.
They could use a good series from Aramis Ramirez.
Oh yeah, and Alfonso Soriano and Derrek Lee.
And, of course, there's the tired old bet between mayors, Richie Daley and Antonio Villaraigosa. Deep dish pizza vs. a tour of Paris Hilton's home? Nope, this one actually is for a good cause.
