Do you remember your first Cubs game?
With all of the frustration right now with our favorite team I thought today, hump day if you will, we would forget about this season, quit worrying about next season and think back to the first time we saw our beloved Cubbies play ball. Let’s use the next several hours before the Cubs take on the Indians tonight to remember how and why we started following the Cubs. Did you go to your first Cubs game at Wrigley, or was it somewhere else?
There is a very cool website called Retrosheet that you can go back and look at box scores from yesteryear and remember those games as a kid that you may have forgotten. So take a minute and forget about this year and think about the feeling you had way back when….the first time you saw the ivy or the first time you sang along with Harry. Whether it was the 50’s or the 60’s or like me the 80’s share your thoughts, who knows some of you might have been at the same game.
Like Jason said on Monday, I would like to hear from as many of you as possible, even those lurkers out there….we know you are there and those that have not been commenting….for whatever reason. Forget your disgust for just a little while and remember why we all still care so many years later…..it did me a lot of good.
