The daggone tough choices in life. I just had to see if the Cubs could provide their fans with a World Series win at Wrigley, no matter what happens the rest of the way.

So I was forced to miss virtually all of Dak-Wentz Vol. 1

What a shame. At this point, I can not picture Romo being under center when the two teams meet again on New Year's Day.

Etrigan, I was just about to post something on this myself. The Ringer's article is comic gold. thanks for it; I'm glad I had finished my coffee before reading it.

Anyway, here is a link to videos of "Dildogate" . It would appear there was no deflation of the object in question. The video by the fan in the crowd is rather funny. Notice how all of the players leave the area in a hurry. Then the officials look at the object. I imagine the dialogue was something like:
Man, what the &$^ is that?
We gotta get it off the field. Pick it up.
I ain't pickin' that thing up, you pick it up.
You're closer, you go ahead.
No man, I'll just kick it over to the sideline. Let the ball boy deal with it.
