CHICAGO -- It isn't about curses. It isn't about goats. It isn't about fans with long arms. It isn't about fate.
Sometimes, it's actually about baseball. What a concept.
People need explanations in life, especially for stuff that seems so unexplainable. And the sight of the Cubs blowing a 3-games-to-1 lead in an NLCS, with Mark Prior and Kerry Wood pitching Games 6 and 7, seems about as unexplainable as the rampaging fame of Whoopi Goldberg.
