Being a Fan

This is a contemplative diary intended to get people to think about things... Since I started as a Cubs fan (born in 1983 started watching games in 1985) I dont think that I've been any less of a fan than I am right now.. Following the Cubs is great but I kinda feel like dissecting the Cubs every move and being upset when the Cubs do not do what I want them to do actually takes away from what I consider being a fan really is.  Don't get me wrong I will cheer for no matter what team takes the field but I get this feeling that it is not the same joy I had when i watched the late 80's teams march out onto the Wrigley field grass.
