  • Cubs "officially" eliminated from playoff race

    A foregone conclusion was made certain today. With their 8-3 loss to Houston, Chicago, still hoping for a last minute stay of execution, was officially elimated from the NL wildcard race.

    That familiar refrain of "What till next year" can begin anew.

    All together now...[img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/bye1.gif[/img]

    Ding Dong! The Witch is dead.
    Which old Witch? The Wicked Witch!
    Ding Dong! The Wicked Witch is dead.
    Wake up - sleepy head, rub your eyes, get out of bed.
    Wake up, the Wicked Witch is dead.
    She's gone where the goblins go,
    Below - below - below. Yo-ho,
    Let's open up and sing and ring the bells out.
    Ding Dong' the merry-oh,
    Sing it high, sing it low.
    Let them know
    The Wicked Witch is dead!


    Looking forward to hearing Dusty's postgame comments. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/tongue.gif[/img]

                Perfect selection, Kah.

                Here's another...


                Guess it's over, call it a day
                Sorry that it had to end this way
                No reason to pretend
                We knew it had to end some day, this way

                Yes, it's over, the [Cubs]sare gone
                What's the use of tryin' to hang on?
                Somewhere we lost the key
                So little left for you and me and it's clear to see

                Too much, too little, too late to lie again with you
                Too much, too little, too late to try again with you
                We’re in the middle of ending something that we knew

                It's over
                Oh, it was over

                Too much, too little, too late to ever try again
                Too much, too little, too late, let's end it being friends
                Too much, too little, too late, we knew it had to end

                Ah, it's over
                It's overrrrrrrr.....

                    Thanks Hep -


                    Another One Bites The Dust lyrics
                    Dusty walks warily down the street,
                    with the brim pulled way down low
                    Ain't no sound but the sound of his feet,
                    machine guns ready to go

                    Are you ready,
                    Are you ready for this
                    Are you hanging on the edge of your seat
                    Out of the doorway the bullets rip
                    To the sound of the beat

                    Another one bites the dust
                    Another one bites the dust
                    And another season's gone, and another one gone
                    Another one bites the dust
                    Hey, I'm gonna lose to you too
                    Another one bites the dust

                    How do you think I'm going to get along,
                    without you, when you're gone
                    You took me for everything that I had,
                    and kicked me out on my own

                    Are you happy, are you satisfied
                    How long can you stand the heat
                    Out of the doorway the bullets rip
                    To the sound of the beat

                    Chorus

                    Another one bites the dust
                    Another one bites the dust
                    Another one bites the dust
                    Another one bites the dust
                    There are plenty of ways you can hurt a man
                    And bring him to the ground
                    You can beat him
                    You can cheat him
                    you can treat him bad and leave him
                    When he's down
                    Or you can turn him into a Cubs fan
                    And make him want to cheat

                    Out of the doorway the bullets rip
                    repeating the sound of the beat
                    Turning the other cheek is better than burying the other body.

                      Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody"

                      Is this a real game?
                      Is this just a simulated start?
                      Caught in a blowout
                      No escape from reality
                      Open your eyes
                      Look up to the ivy and see
                      I'm just a poor starter, I ain't got no relief
                      Because I'm easy walk, easy hit
                      A little high, little low
                      Anyway the wind blows, doesn't really matter to me, to me

                      Dusty, just hit a batter
                      Put a ball against his head
                      Pulled my trigger, now he's on base
                      Dusty, the game had just begun
                      But now I've gone and thrown it all away
                      Dusty, ooo
                      Didn't mean to make you lose
                      If I'm not back again this time next start
                      Carry on, carry on, as if nothing really matters

                      Too late, the ninth inning has come
                      Sends damage down my arm
                      Rotator cuff is aching all the time
                      Goodbye everybody - I've got to go
                      Gotta leave you all behind to face the NL
                      Dusty, ooo - (anyway the wind blows)
                      I don't want to go on the DL
                      I sometimes wish I'd never been drafted at all

                      I see a little silhouetto of a man
                      Will Hendry, Will Hendry will you do the fandango
                      Hanging curveball and fielding error - very very frightening me
                      Dusty Baker, Dusty Baker,
                      Dusty Baker, Dusty Baker,
                      Dusty Baker Figaro - magnifico

                      But I'm just a poor starter and nobody loves me
                      He's just a poor starter from a poor family
                      Spare him his life from this Chicago Tribune
                      Easy come easy go - will you let me go
                      Meatgrinder! No - we will not let you go - let him go
                      Meatgrinder! We will not let you go - let him go
                      Meatgrinder! We will not let you go - let me go
                      Will not let you go - let me go (never)
                      Never let you go - let me go
                      Never let me go - ooo
                      No, no, no, no, no, no, no -
                      Oh dusty mia (Hamm), dusty mia (Hamm), dusty mia (Hamm) let me go
                      Bud Selig has an angel (Hernandez) put aside for me
                      for me
                      for me

                      So you think you can meatgrind me and tear up my arm
                      So you think you can meatgrind me and leave me on the mound
                      Oh dusty - can't do this to me dusty
                      Just gotta get out - just gotta get right outta here

                      Ooh yeah, ooh yeah
                      Nothing really matters
                      Bartman can see
                      Nothing really matters - nothing really matters to me

                      Anyway the wind blows...

                        My first choice is the theme to "Groundhog's Day."

                        This is second choice:

                        Dusty in the Wind

                        I close my eyes, only for a moment, and the moment's gone
                        All my dreams, pass before my eyes, a curiosity
                        Dusty in the wind, all they are is dusty in the wind.
                        Same old song, just a drop of water in an endless sea
                        All we do, crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see

                        Dusty in the wind, all we are is dust in the wind

                        [Now] Don't hang on, nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky
                        It slips away, and all your money won't another minute buy.

                        Dusty in the wind, all we are is dusty in the wind
                        Dusty in the wind, everything is dusty in the wind.
                        "There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle."

                            Dusty in the wind is good -

                            But

                            "Meatgrinder - no we will not let you go."

                            Is still my sentimental favorite.
