Go Cubs Go—All The Way To The 2012 World Series!
My DNA is constructed so that I champion the underdogs. I have always been this way. Therefore once again, as I have done for many years, I will be rooting for the Loveable Losers to again snap what has been the longest title drought endured by any professional sports team. I will be cheering on the Chicago Cubs to again prove why they are America’s Team.
I have never had any allegiance for any other baseball team, or for that matter any other sports team. My backing of the Cubbies is due to the fact they have heart, and they seem to so often leave everything they have out on the field in an attempt to make their fans proud. Year after year they strive to win it all, and in that struggle I see the glory. After 103 straight seasons without a World Series championship who among us is not deep down rooting for a miracle? Come on—I know you are!
While I am not a sports fan in the sense that most understand the term, I do have a deep respect for the Cubs. I have listened to Chicago radio every day since I was a teenager, and so follow the sports news from the Windy City. It is impossible to not become attached to the dreams of this franchise to again prevail over all other teams.
Over time I have discovered I have a strange warm feeling for Wrigley Field though I have never attended a game there, but hear so much about it from callers on WGN radio. As such I am glad that Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has moved seriously in the direction of using city funds for a renovation plan for the 98-year-old historic ballpark.
So while many will cheer on the Brewers or the Cardinals or the Red Sox I will be with the guys who have heart and play for the history books.
Go Cubs Go!
