How was that cabrito Chicago?

After more than a century, the Chicago Cubs finally won the World Series this week.  While it was fun to see the sad sack Cubbies make history, I sure wish they hadn't done it against my Cleveland Indians.

Next year...right?

During Game 7, the announcers talked about Theo Epstein's promise to bring a championship to Chi-Town and all of the steps he had to take to make his promise reality.

That got me to thinking and that's never good.

Let me propose a little theory if I may, and since its my post, I may.

Does anyone else find it odd the Cubs won the title in the same year that we've lost a glut of beloved celebrities?  Did Theo strike a deal with Mephisto?  Did he have some way of promising souls that weren't his own?  Did the Cubs title come at the expense of Lemmy, Prince, Glenn Frey, Abe Vigoda, et al?  Is Theo the new Ghost Rider?

Okay, maybe I need to lay off Agents of SHIELD.

Let's move on.

Let's say hello to this week's cheesecake, Ana de la Reguera.

Ms. de la Reguera has been bumping around the Geek-o-Sphere for a while now.  You may recognize her from her work in Nacho Libre, Narcos or Eastbound & Down.  She's also done a lot of work on Spanish language television and guest appearances of American shows like Jane the Virgin.

She's most recently appeared as culebra lord, Venganza Verdugo.  Though Venganza met an ignoble death in the penultimate episode of the third season of From Dusk till Dawn, she brought a sense of desperate malice in her appearances.

From Dusk till Dawn ended its third season this week.  If the reports are true, it may have been the series' swansong.  That's too bad, because it filled an interesting spot on the fledgling El Rey Network.

If From Dusk till Dawn is truly gone, well, they've certainly provided us with an abundance of cheesecake.  For that, we will be forever in their debt.

See you in El Rey.

Don't forget to vote.
