Bennigan’s Index 9/22/08

Some of you may be aware that the Chicago Cubs clinched the National League Central Division title this weekend.  Our office secretary, who is a passionate fan, had been hoping that the victory would be followed immediately, on Saturday afternoon, by a thousand kiosks blooming and selling Cubs stuff, so she could buy a T-shirt.  But she saw no kiosks or T-shirts on Saturday, or even Sunday.  This is definitely not  what happened the last time the Cubs won anything significant, so she sees this as a Bad Sign for the economy.  However, this morning, the 7-11 nearest our office did have some Cubs T-shirts on sale, so maybe this isn’t as bad as it looked initially.
