In spite of every effort to not make the playoffs, the Cubs manage to defy predictions and have a decent enough September to pull out of the rut of mediocrity that is the NL Central to make the playoffs.
Kind of reminds us of the NHL's old Norris Division (the "Snorris" as we heard it called). All mediocre, but everyone made the playoffs anyway.
Let's see where this train ends. Our money isn't on the curse ending any time soon.
