The Blues Brothers

As the baseball season progressed and as our Club Industry show drew near, I was highly anticipating a Chicago filled with frenzied Cubs fans (and a few White Sox fans, too) energizing the Windy City to Sears Tower-like heights. One, maybe both of Chicago's big-league teams were surely going to be playing post-season baseball by the time we arrived there in mid-October.

Instead, the Cubs were shockingly swept by the Dodgers, and the White Sox were eliminated almost as quietly by the Rays (they play in Tampa Bay). Chicago is definitely the City of Slumped Shoulders these days. You might even call the Cubs and White Sox "The Blues Brothers."

At least the Bears are in first place.
