This Could Be the Year

This could be the year. Seeing the team rush the field after a hard fought 11th inning win and hearing the fans singing “Go Cubs Go” is huge this early in the year!

“He was Mr. Cub and no other player in franchise history — or in the club’s future — will ever be adored in the same way.”

My Cubbies will have a good season (miss the ’89-91 team)!

Why Aren’t We Watching the World Series?

“No sports event will ever get 37 million viewers again… except the Super Bowl.”

It’s not just baseball, btw. My beloved NASCAR is similarly hurting for somewhat similar reasons with a push towards equalized competitors in regions of the country that don’t appeal to the base of the sport.
