An interesting email from a friend this morning

As I read this email, it really made me think. For him 03 playoffs were so much fun, 04 obviously just the opposite as he grew up in NYC and has been a Yankee fan all his life.

 How we live in the present, from moment to moment, though we plan for the future, baseball is one game at a time. Tonight the Cubs have the pleasure and the right to play a game of baseball, and the fans can enjoy watching or listening to the 2008 version of the cubbies. To win the World Series will take winning 11 games by some team this year. Each game is played one at a time. The 2004 Bosox were down 3 to 0 to Yanks, and were losing game 4, yet won 8 in a row to win it all.  So tonight is a big game just like any other playoff game. A must win just makes the stakes that much higher. With backs to the wall they must go all out, hold nothing back, and play it one pitch at a time.  I know there will be a lot of Cubs fans at Dodger Stadium tonight. I went to a few Cubs games there over the years.
