We're just hours away from the Cubs opening their playoff series with the Dodgers. On ESPN's SportsCenter, "writer"/personality Rick Reilly had some fun toying with Cubs fans' emotions and the Cubs streak of "curses."

The piece seems to be tongue-in-cheek and, well, we guess our posting of it means it worked.
