Go Cubs Go!!

So, I think everyone here realizes that I am a big Cubs fan, have been my entire life. It started way back when I was a lot younger and mom, dad, Michelle, and I would go on bus trips with the Freeport Park District into Wrigley Field at least once each summer. They were so much fun!! Now, I love making the trip as an adult. I have to say that Jason is a true Cubs fan now too, but it did take some work. The first game we went to (well, we didn't really get to see the game - it was the day Daryl Kile was found in his hotel room in Chicago) he wore a St. Louis Cardinals t-shirt, just to irritate me! I'm not really sure when he became a loyal fan or what did it, but I can say that he is one now! We have been to Busch Stadium, but I have to say that I just LOVE Wrigley Field. The atmosphere and the history that goes along with it is just amazing if you ask me. A few weeks ago we went to the game against the Cards with two other couples - one were Cards fans, the other were one of each. By the end of the game, they were Cubs fans! woo hoo! (I guess it couldn't hurt that the Cubs won!) One other thing I have to say about Cubs fans is this...they are true fans, no matter what! Wrigley Field always has huge crowds no matter the time, weather, or opponent and that is a true reflection of our loyalty. Now, granted that we have not won a World Series in the past 5, 10, 20, or even 50 years, but that's okay...."It's Gonna Happen!" and I believe this may be our year! You know...we are in FIRST place with the Cardinals three games BACK!

For those of you who enjoy the song playing after every Cubs home game win this year, "Go Cubs Go",'s the link to hear it: Go Cubs Go

So, for that 1pm game today...Go Cubs Go!
