cubs-win-3This is the week that the CUBs, in a nail-biter game, kept hope alive for so many fans.  Me included.  So, for the first time in my history, I put October baseball at the top of my list.  #GoCubsGo!

Another Monday, another day to take stock of the little and big things that make my life abundant.

How could I fail to mention a soul full of hearty gratitude for a Cubs win this weekend?  Of course!  I mean, I’ve only been a fan for 30 or so years.  I’ve only been around for one sorrowful example of the curse come true, the Bartman Ball.  Oh, poor Bartman, he was only following the instincts of any baseball fan: catch the ball.  I missed the 1969 Black Cat curse, and the Billy Goat curse happened before I was even born. It’s been 71 years since the Cubs won at NL pennant and 108 years since they won the World Series.  Yes, this could be the year for the Lovable Losers. And who better for the Cubs to play against than the team with the next longest drought: the Cleveland Indians.  The last time the Indians won?  48 years ago.[tweetthis] #GoCubsGo[/tweetthis]
