Holy Cow! Cubs Win!

Well, the Chicago Cubs finally won after losing 6 (or was it 8) games in a row, all in the most pathetic ways possible.

And during the game, none of the players got into fist fights.

No umpires had dirt kicked on their shiny shoes.

No hats were thrown. At least not by players or managers.

There are 110 games left.

A World Championship is still within their grasp.

As Gandalf said, "There's always hope". Gandalf must have been a Cub fan.

Hello Poodle,

Wow, I was expecting vociferations on the Republican debates. This is sort of refreshing. I'm happy for your happiness, but books kept me away from sports, so I'm not even sure who the Cubs are. I'll Google it.

Well, I can fill you in on the Cubs sometime. My young life was mostly books, I didn't play sports,but I did listen and watch the Cubs as I grew up in the Chicago suburbs. They have been a thread through my life. They have not won a World Championship since 1908. I'm hoping they win one before I die, but I'm not optimistic. I find baseball to be very soothing, and do lots of reading during games since not much happens for long periods. Actually attending a game at Wrigley field, with its ivy covered walls, is like going back in time, like a deeply spiritual experience. I know that sounds weird, but all these incredible memories come back, attached to the thread of the Cubs throughout my life.

"Life could get better......"

Now, that's optimistic! I don't know which response to make. Multiple Choice. I'll let you choose.

a) But it probably won't.
b) How could it possibly get any better than it already is?
c) When?
d) All of the above.
e) None of the above.

potato prints: I already blogged about the Republican "debate". They sure like torture, those guys.....

Ed: you've become so....cynical....I bet you don't even wear your leiderhosen anymore.....sad...really sad....

Alas, middle age has rendered my lederhosen unwearable. I wonder if I can take them somewhere to have them stretched? But that might make the sequins pop off.
