How did it all start...for you?

Sorry im just sitting here at my computer, wishing there was a game thread, lol.  bored out of my mind. 

Fun off-day topic:  HOW did you become a cubs fan??  were you young when you did?  did you come to baseball or the cubs later in life?  what major memories brought you to the status of a "bleeder of cubbie blue?"  in other words, what made you the hardcore fan you are?

My story:  i remember when i was in like kindergarten, my grandpa gave me a cubs jacket, it wasnt any jacket either, it was a shiny, official field jacket you saw the cubs wear on cold nights.  it was sweet!!  My grandpa was baiting me into this wonderful thing we call cubdom!  i remember he invited me over to watch games on WGN, i remember watching Ryno and Grace.  I absolutley fell in love with the cubs!  i watched all the time.

My grandpa passed away last year about a month before the playoffs.  he was buried with his cubs hat that he wore for about 15 years, because he wore the last decades hat out.  i inherited all his cubs stuff.

My grandpa is the reason that i am a fanatic of our beloved cubbies...i would give anything to have him beside me when the third out is made when we win the WS this year. and im sure thats the first thing we talk about when i find him in heaven!
