Is Being A Cub Fan Worth The Price?

I love this game and I have loved this team for as long as my 37 year old brain will let me remember, but I am really wondering right now if it is worth it. 

I am sure like most of you, you log onto this site and check most media sources every day of the winter to see what the team is doing. Every February I start to get caught up in the fever of the season again, and I probably will again next year as well.  Every day of the season the feeling grows.  When our Cubs do well, the excitment and enthusiasm builds...the thought of participating in exciting October baseball!  You make time to check scores, read the articles, discuss with friends, listen to Pat and Ron in the car, watch as many games as possible and make an event out of our team being on ESPN, etc... 

And every fall I have to remind myself that this is just a game, and I remind myself of what is really important...kids, family, etc..

The Cubs have always been a connection to family, memories, and a big part of life for me, but I really think I get too caught up in "this" and really wonder if it is worth it.

My mind is already start to think about 2009 a little, but I big part of me says to stop.  Is it worth the time and energy?

Suffering Cub fan wishing I could watch them play game 4 tonight...
