Cubs Fan Willing to Do ANYTHING For Cubs Victory

Sarah Spain is a Chicago area sports fan who has received some publicity in the past for selling a date with herself to get Bears Super Bowl tickets has come up with a new solution to finally ending the Cubs’ long streak of futility. She’s going to rail Steve Bartman. While I’m not sure that even sinking that low could help the Cubs, or their fans, but hey, it can’t hurt. And I doubt that Bartman has gotten many other offers from similarly attractive women with bodacious tatas. The whole song is a parody on the Jimmy Kimmel/Sarah Silverman “I’m Fucking Matt Damon” song but hey, it works, albeit being played out. Regardless, I think I’m flying to Chicago and getting my Bartman costume out and seeking Ms. Spain. And if you’re interested in more about Sarah, check out her myspace page and her website.

At What Point Does Becoming Glue Make More Sense?

After 162 races, Japanese racehorse Elizabeth Queen raced her way on Tuesday to the record for horse-racing ineptitude. That’s because the 7 year old horse has yet to come away with a single win. You read that right, after having run the equivalent of an entire baseball schedule of races, Elizabeth Queen remains winless; even the Mariners aren’t that bad!

Elizabeth Queen, which usually finished in the bottom group in each race, has recently improved her performance, in 11 consecutive races she has finished second four times, third six times and fifth once. “I feel she’s going to run faster than ever. I’d like to help her stop the consecutive losses,” said jockey Hisashi Itano the day before she finished second in her record-setting race.

“Finishing races safely is a condition for a good horse. She’ll surely win if she keeps racing,” said Tetsuharu Kuribayashi, a trainer of the horse. I’m not so sure about that. You’d think after 162 tries that she’d have done it once…

I’m guessing she won’t be making the big bucks as a female stud (brood mare?) There may be only one real solution…
