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