I’m trying to cheer myself up… about our Cubs.  Down 3-0… looking done… still hoping inside, that they have one more run left.  We’ll find out soon enough.  Until then, I need to write; that’s why I started this whole thing … Continued

I was ready.  After unpacking, organizing, and cleaning most of the day, I couldn’t wait to watch Game 5 of the 2017 NLDS.  I couldn’t believe we were here; I still had faith.  Remember, after Game 7 last year, that … Continued

So I didn’t miss Game 4 of the NLDS.  I wish I would have missed it.  All those fans there on this cold rainy day got nothing to cheer about, well almost nothing. There was that brief sarcastic cheer when … Continued
