The [Monday] Papers

* Lou is green, people. In The Cub Factor.

* "This may be the first time in my life I'd be satisfied with losing two of three to the Twins." In The White Sox Report.

* The less said about another infuriating Bears loss, the better. Baseball beckons. In SportsMonday.

* We're going live outside Wrigley to talk to more drunk fans! Say something unintelligible!

* Aren't there better things to ask athletes than how does it feel and can you explain what this means to you? Maybe what are you gonna do tonight? Or even just is this great or what? Any good jokes on the bench toward the end there? I mean, really.

* A Cubs-Sox World Series might be a better way to discover the Higgs boson particle than the Large Hadron Collider. Because, um, worlds will be colliding. Okay, that might be lame. They can't all be winners.

* "Before [Cook County judge Martin S.] Agran made his ruling, he took a shot at Cubs fans - questioning why they'd be looking at a billboard anyway," the Sun-Times reports. "You mean they're not watching the game?" he asked. "Isn't that what most Cub fans do, stare away?"

Wow! Hey judge, Cub fans vote too!

* And didn't Derrek Lee really get away with one?

* It's not gonna happen, by the way. When will you people learn?

Head Games
"Pick apart the roster deficiencies, the play-calling decisions, all of the Bears' other issues. But their biggest weakness in Sunday's 27-24 overtime loss to Tampa Bay was from the shoulder pads up," the Tribune's David Haugh writes.

"Right now the Bears lack the mind power to do what's necessary to put teams away. When Tampa Bay wide receiver Michael Clayton baited veteran cornerback Charles Tillman into taking a swing at him in overtime, it illustrated the word on the Bears: You can get inside their heads; there's plenty of room."

The View From Tampa
"Above anything else, Michael Clayton proved he can take a punch," Rick Stroud writes in the St. Petersburg Times. "Knocked down for most of the past three seasons, the Bucs' beleaguered receiver finally showed some fight when his team needed it most. Brian Griese had overcome three interceptions to rally Tampa Bay from two scores down in the fourth quarter and force overtime against the Bears. But after going three-and-out and with his team facing a punt from its end zone, a skirmish broke out. Clayton was right in the middle of it and found himself on the receiving end of a haymaker from cornerback Charles Tillman. Of all the big plays the Bucs made in Sunday's 27-24 overtime win over the Bears, this one proved to be the biggest. Tillman was penalized for unnecessary roughness, extending a drive that would result in Matt Bryant's winning 21-yard field goal with 4:21 left."

The View From St. Louis
"Inside a quiet clubhouse the Cardinals again pondered what could have been," Joe Strauss writes in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

"Outside, with their well-lubricated fans singing and champagne being passed from coaches to players to grounds crew, the Chicago Cubs celebrated what is."

Yankee Stadium Goes Dark
"It will only grow with time, like Lou Gehrig's farewell, Don Larsen's masterpiece and Reggie Jackson's third home run in a World Series game. Untold thousands will say they were there the night the curtain fell on baseball's grandest stage," Tyler Kepner writes in the New York Times.

Ties Die
