The Future of the "Billy Goat"

The future I see for one of my friends--a die hard Cubs fan:

With the New York Yankees playing like they reside in Kansas City, it’s only a matter of time before they miss the playoffs. A-Rod opts out of his contract and signs on the dotted line with Sweet Lou in Chi-town. Give them a year or so and you’ll see that little spark plug Darwin Barney from OSU filling out the left side of the Chicago Cubs infield. This kid gunned down a runner at home the other night from well beyond the infield grass. He is fundamentally sound in the field. He exhibited a little power with a homerun in the final game of the College World Series. He’s just infectious in the dugout, and on the field. Some see a little Jeter, but I'll wait to see if that comes to fruition. The Cubs can only hope he is half as good. Just think: that skill, smile, and likability in the Windy City; there's a marketing firm salivating at this very moment. Maybe the ‘Curse of the Billy Goat’ will be put down by a former Beaver. Ironically, the Tar Heel mascot is a....................Billy Goat.
