“Having not been to the World Series in 102 years, what’s there to like about the Chicago Cubs? It’s literally insane when one ponders it. Heck, I remember being basically harassed at a BBQ once as a kid, all of my mill-working friends’ families would then call me a ‘yuppie’ having shown up to a BBQ in an old #23 Ryne Sandberg jersey, having grow up closer to the ‘South Side’ where the Sox played.
My Dad used to joke about the Cubs, ‘For those that suffer, give them repose, oh Lord.” He was right, think about it; when that day of ‘salvation’ comes, won’t it be the ultimate triumph in baseball history? Don’t you ‘want to be ready?’
I digress. One can’t mention the Cubs without mentioning Wrigley Field. Win or lose, it just feels like real baseball in there, lights or not. For those lucky enough to see a game when Harry Caray was alive and sing along during the ‘7th Inning Stretch,’ you know what I’m talking about. Plus the Metro is right down the street…how can you beat seeing an afternoon game and then top it off with a Naked Raygun concert?”” —
