Happy Birthday To Lou

At this point in the season, things couldn’t be sweeter for birthday boy Sweet Lou.

Sweet Lou

 After notching their 6th win in a row last night with a come from behind 6-4 victory over a strong Philly team, capped off by MVP candidate Aramis “I Promise” Ramirez’ 8th inning grand salami birthday present to Lou, things couldn’t look any rosier for the Cubs. Right? Not so fast pal. Let’s not forget.

100 years is a long long time ago but what concerns me even more is what occurred only 7 short years ago when Sweet Lou laid a huge egg that still plays on my mind especially when I think about his Cubbies sporting the best record in all of the major leagues.

How can we forget that 2001 season when his Mariners lost to the Yankees 4-1 in the NLCS after compiling an incredible 116-46 .716 season record. Lou’s Mariners’ team was invincible but errrrrrrrrrrrr!!! thanks for playing. Lets all wish Sweet Lou a happy 65th Birthday but let’s hope he can remember how fast a good/strong/invincible team can get bumped off in the playoffs if they don’t bring their “A” game each and every pitch.
