Holy Cow! CUBS WIN! CUBS WIN!
Oh, My God. All I can say is…WOW! When I woke up this morning, all I was thinking about was if I wanted to go out today–and cook dinner. Around 7:08 a.m. I slowly arose and went into the kitchen to begin what was to become Sunday dinner. At about 8:00 a.m., I turned on the television to watch Good Morning America, and to my shock, amazement, and complete exhilaration, the announcers, both of whom were Cubs fans, were so excited to announce that the Cubs won the National League Championship.
My mother, who lives with me, was completely ambivalent. She wanted to talk about God.
Ok. I screamed again.
This is one of the best surprises that I have had in a long time.
I grew up in Chicago on the North Shore, and it was a yearly saga to see the Cubs struggle during the year. Fans were loyal though. They never turned their backs on their beloved Cubbies.
The Cubs are 100 years old and they actually have won the World Series in 1907 and 1908. But they haven’t won a pennant since 1945.
But boy oh, boy…it’s on now!
The past is the past!
Honestly, I thought of the late Harry Carey. The late Ernie Banks. I wish they could have lived to see their team win. I know that both would have been beyond excited.\
All the old Cubs players now retired, I know that they are celebrating like never before.
I’m so excited about the Cubs–and I don’t even like baseball. But this is history in the making…and I am so proud for the Cubs and I wish them all the best.
