Curse? There Ain't No Stinking Chicago Cub Curse and Other Stories about Sports and Gamesmanship is a humorous and thought-provoking collection of eleven short stories about the games people play. From baseball, golf, and tennis to bocce ball, blackjack, and Scrabble, these games demonstrate the good and bad facets of the human competitive spirit. A golfing womanizer takes the old adage, “so much fun to be had, and so little time” just a bit too much to heart; a woman comes up with a system for betting at the racetrack—and wins every time; a pair of adult brothers revert to childish competition to prove themselves; a woman searches for Mr. Right on a “Scrabble date;” and the wily owner of the Cubs uses an infamous curse in order to transform his team into a money-making franchise. Human foibles are laid bare in this entertaining collection, which brings both a male and a female perspective to the humor and irony inherent in the ways we compete.
