For anyone who thought that you could shift your focus and energy from the sinking Bears to the rising Cubs, think again. Just when things were looking up in Chicagoland, our baseball postseason hopes were quickly dashed, as the Cubs were the first team to be eliminated from the 2007 MLB Playoffs. And it wasn’t some wacky way, either. They just didn’t play well. They didn’t play up to their potential. Like the 2006 Chicago Bulls in the playoffs last year. Or some other Chicago team this year (so far).
