This isn't about the Cubs.
Actually, come to think of it, it is. A little over a year ago -- in September 2007 -- I posted this story, told to me by a man who became a dear friend to me and my family. Read it if you haven't before.
This morning, this man, whose name is Bob, suffered a massive heart attack and passed away at the age of 75. He was as big a Cubs fan as any of us, and last night he was in his regular seat in the first row of the upper deck -- suffering along with the rest of us.
Now he has a better seat for the rest of this series. Perhaps there was a higher calling for him to help his team out. He was a good man and a good friend. Rest in peace, my dear friend. Go Cubs.
