I'm Over It (Already)!

Well, this didn't take me long.  Last night, I was sitting at home watching the debate and wishing I was watching a game 5, when it hit me that I'm ready again for a new season of loving my Cubs.  This I thought came pretty quick, but afterall this postseason wasn't about heartbreak like 03, this was just an embarrassment.  An with any embarrassment you realize that people only care for a short while then it is back to life as normal.  Anyway, I'm already ready again.  I don't know why this is, but when you feel passion it is a hard train to stop or slow down.  All of the questions about, "will we care as much?" and "will the regular season mean anything?" now seem to be in their proper perspective.  I can only answer for me, and the answer is of course I will care and of course the regular season will mean something!  I know I will get myself all worked up all over again.  Afterall, that is the beauty of this sport.  It is a crazy crazy ride, and at the end of the day, I love it.  Having said that, I worry about next year. I think these last two postseason failures will take their toll.  I think we have some major issues that will likley run their course, specifically the guy at the top of the lineup.  You can love this team and really dislike certain players.  Trust me, I've done it before (Oh Henry).  In the end, IF the pitching stays healthy and the back end of the bullpen stays consistent, we'll all probably be back again this time next year.  Either way, I'll be along for the ride.
