Lou Piniella’s tirade received blanket media and blog coverage. We’ve all been waiting for Sweet Lou to go nuts. For a full video replay of all the lunacy, including the Barrett-Zambrano fight, see the Bucco Blog. (The Karaoke Queen points out that Lou could stand to lose a few pounds. He ain’t at playing weight. He took his time walking from the dugout to third base.)
The betting has started across the internet: How long will it be before Piniella quits or is fired?
At least the Cubs are providing us with some entertainment. They were just boring losers until Friday. The fight might help. Lou kicking his cap across the diamond might help. As usual, the sportswriters are having a PC hissy fit.
The real question for the Cubs is: How do we end the voodoo curse? This site offers “Protection spells [that] can also be used to destroy generational curse or family curse that may be on you since generations, voodoo curse meaning a curse or spell done with voodoo doll or some thing.” Wiccan Way sells a variety of banishing and reversing supplies. I’m thinking of sending Lou a season’s supply of Banishing Incense Sticks.
For 45 bucks, Lou could purchase a Voodoo Spell Kit guaranteed to cast off the influence of the evil eye. And, it’s a do-it-yourself kit.
I caught the Cubs-Braves game on TBS today. A 10-1 Cub victory! Hope springs eternal in Cubdom.
