dear people from the future

today the cubs were eliminated from the playoffs.

they had won their division but because this is the year 2020 and there are DHs in the national league,

if you win the division you still have to play a wild card series

and they got swept

they were not playing well

they did not play well

and the national league has some buzz saws in the west that were waiting

and the thing about me and the cubs and the playoffs is i am useless for anything else when they are going on which makes their sad pathetic sweep to a team that shouldnta even been in the playoffs a silver lining because i need to be working on my own stuff right now

in part because the world is melting down and i need to be focused on documenting it

but also because bread and circuses are whats needed when the king needs the people to have a form of distraction

not when every little thing is fascinating and historic and without precedent and sports should take a back seat right now because who the hell cares about fernando tatis jr

when his old man hit two grand slams in the same inning so good luck trying to get my attention

when the president of the united states is in the hospital

and not tweeting

and not getting people together for his rallies

because he has put himself in more than political danger

and the people all around him.

he has the rona, his wife has the rona, his evil press director has it, a couple of senators

a reverend

and they all caught it probably when they were patting themselves on the back in the rose garden rushing their supreme court justice into the still warm seat of rbg.

it was almost like the gods were saying

over your dead body.

future people, shits going down right now and the days speed by

but the election seems to be creeping closer at a snails pace

today is october 3

its 414am

gotta take the girl to a baby shower in the afternoon

and between now and then

it’s anybody’s guess what will happen.

that is how wild this time is right now.
