The end of summer also means the end of the baseball season in Chicago. Chicago is not New York, where the playoffs are an annual event. This is Chicago, where the White Sox winning the World Series last year was a truly once in a lifetime event - and the Cubs are approaching 100 years without a World Series title.
We went to one of the last games of the Cubs' season last weekend. It was one of those games so typical of the Cubs - they get your hopes up and lose it in the end. But, as loyal fans, we stuck it out till the end, enduring 14 heartbreaking innnings (yes, extra innings!) and two rain delays over six hours. The team did make it exciting, though. They came back from an 8-0 deficit to force extra innings - but in the end, it was an "L" for the books.
What else can we do but wait till next year?Each time you finish reading a story, please click here! With just one click every day, you'll be helping my blog ranking. Thank you!!
