Nice to see David Broder, WaPo's venerable dispenser of the informed version of the conventional wisdom, writing about something other than politics. Turns out he grew up in Chicago and is a Cubs fan and considers it something of a miracle that they made it into the playoffs. He says he doesn't expect another miracle. And it doesn't look as if he's going to get one.
As for me, I'm just hoping that my beloved, beleaguered Angels, who have a history of not doing that well in Fenway, find a way to regroup after the 4-0 drubbing they took, courtesy of Josh Beckett and Papi, on Wednesday, come tomorrow.
And that the Bruins whomp the tar out of Notre Dame on Saturday, of course.
