You heard it here first, kids. The Chicago Cubs are going all the way this year! No more Bartman, no more curses, no more excuses. Let’s go, Cubbies!
Spoken like a true Cubs fan…I am ever hopeful. Plus, if it doesn’t work out, there’s always next year. Or next century. My grandparents (aged 92) have been waiting a lot longer than me to see our team win its first World Series.
Even so…seats at Wrigley Field are hard to come by. It is always with much pleasure (whether a winning season or no) that people stream into one of this country’s greatest stadiums. I had the good fortune to run into an ex-boyfriend from days of old who just happened to have received extra tickets to that night’s game. I chalk it up to good karma. A bridge unburned was my ticket in! Plus, it’s not too difficult to sit next to Chicago’s finest Firefighters while watching your home team bring in a WIN!
Of course, no game is complete without a Chicago-style hot dog…complete with Old Style beer. A classic Chi-town meal.
To Lou Pinella and the boys…best of luck!
