I never get too excited about the prospects of the Cubs possibly going all the way, even when they are poised to do so. Not since the heartbreak of 1984 when I pretty much gave up on them forever. So now they’re close to another shot at the big time. I’ll believe it when I see it. Not that that is based on anything substantial; I haven’t watched or listened to even one minute of Cubs baseball this year. And while I can look at the standings and see they’re leading their division, I also notice that they have the worst record of all division leaders. So see, nothing to get exited about.
This is the extent of my sports commentary for the year. I hope you enjoyed it.
