I have been reading this blog for a a few weeks now and have found the insights and feelings of my fellow Cub fans very entertaining and intelligent.
I have found that some of you follow the statistics and inner working of the Cubs more closely than I do. I have learned a lot more about the minors through this blog as well. I sure do love the game and know the team and basics as well as any loyal Cub fan should.
And let me tell ya, it does this west central Illinoian's heart good to see the Cubs spank the Cards. I live almost exactly half way between Chicago and St. Louis. My family is about 40% Cards fans 60% Cubs fans. There is always a friendly banter about who should be the MVP etc.
Well, it was friendly until I sent my brother, a big time Cards fan, a text message last Thursday saying "Cubs win! Cubs win! Cubs win!"
Use your imagination about what I got in return:-)
In closing, I leave you with an entry my mother made in my baby book: "At 2 months and 3 weeks old the only place Erin wants to lay is on her back on a blanket in front of the TV. She loves listening to Harry Caray and watching baseball on TV."
Still true 27 years later.
