It's not quite 2006 yet here in the USA (if you are in Europe, Asia or Oceania, you're in 2006 already), but let me take this quick time as 2005 comes to an end, to wish each and every BCB reader a prosperous, healthy and successful New Year in every way.
At this moment, the roster of our favorite team is certainly not such, that we could expect it to be a contender and winner in 2006.
But we can hope, can't we? It's three months to Opening Day, and the future cannot be known with certainty.
Keep the faith, everyone. That's why we are Cubs fans.
Happy New Year!
