I love baseball. It’s my favorite sport — always has been. And, there is no team that I love more than the Chicago Cubs. So, why am I so upset tonight? My Cubs are in first place. They hold a two game lead on the Milwaukee Brewers. And, they could clinch the division tomorrow with a win over Reds coupled with a Brewer loss to the Padres.
Three games left. Magic number: Two. And, Cub fans all over the world almost convinced that the Cubs will find a way to blow it.
That’s the problem with growing up a Cub fan. We are way to used to the phrase Wait ’til next year.
I hope this is the year. Go Cubs.
