France beat New Zealand, too. I give up. The Antipodes suck.
So, back to baseball- the Cubs' dream has just been denied for the 99th consecutive year. Is anyone shocked? I am a little, if only because of this statistic for the Arizona Diamondbacks:
Runs scored: 712
Runs allowed: 732
What business does a team that was outscored have racking up a record of 90-72? This may be the luckiest team since the 1960 Pirates. And they were only that lucky for seven games.
