You have no idea how frustrating it is to be a Chicago Cub fan. I remember listening to the Cubs on radio while as a young boy in Northern Indiana. When we got a television I watched the games. Ernie Banks was my favorite player — he was wonderful even when the Cubs weren’t. Each Spring started out with hope and optimism, but they all ended the same way — ‘Wait ’til next year!’.
Cub fans have waited for next year a long time — it’s been 100 years since they won a World Series. I sure hope we won’t have to wait another 100 years.
During the regular season this year the Cubs were absolutely great — they were probably the best team in baseball. So what happens in the post-season? They blow the first game. Can anyone remember the last time the Cubs won a post-season game?
As I write this the second post-season game hasn’t begun. I’m almost afraid to tune in when the game starts.
Will the Cubs win this series? Can they go all the way? I don’t know — I certainly hope so. But if not, ‘Wait ’til next year!’.
P.S. Since I wrote this the Cubbies lost another game. AAAUGHHHHHHH!
