I-94’s Disappointment Bowl: Crickets Chirp Over Cubs & Brewers

WGN Radio is hyping hockey, basketball and even…BEARS football?  Attendance is down at both Wrigley and U.S. Cellular Fields. Milwaukee fans are apathetic about northbound traffic from Illinois and no one’s uttered the FIB acronym in weeks.

Wow, the Milwaukee Brewers and Chicago Cubs must both suck this season. Chicago: your offense is 13th in the league, you’ve scored 234 runs and Ted Lilly hasn’t won a game since his season debut in April. Milwaukee: your pitching is 13th in the league with a team ERA of 5.29. Crack a PBR or a High Life.  Either way, you might need it to get through this week’s Disappointment Bowl.
