I wrote this piece last night, and coined the term “#KickAstros” to describe the Cubs potentially sweeping the Houston Astros in the final three games of the season.
It’s ironic that all year I’ve talked about the Double Triple concept that I created a year ago, and now, just when people are starting to make their peace with it, I pull back and want them to win instead. I’m a fan, first, last, and always. Like Pete Rose told me once, “the burgers taste better when you win.”
So I’m looking forward to some tasty burgers for the next couple of days. After all, there’s a long, burgerless offseason up ahead.
