Time to Give Thanks

This Thanksgiving is different, there is an enthusiasm surrounding the Cubs that has not existed in recent years. They are big players to this point in the off-season and it looks like Jim Hendry and company have only just begun. There are rumors of a possible 3-peat for Greg Maddux in a Cubs’ uniform and it is starting to look like the Cubs could have new ownership as early as December.

So pour a glass of Cubbie Kool-Aid today to go along with your turkey and dressing, enjoy the annual ritual of eating too much, falling asleep and waking up in the 3rd quarter of a boring football game….and then remember Opening Day is just 131 shopping days away.

10 Things the Cubs Faithful Should Be Thankful for….

10. The Bleachers – Name another park you can throw a ball on the field without being arrested.

9. Old Style Beer – 98 years without winning a World Series….How else can the Cubs Faithful cope with it?

8. The Goat, The Black Cat and Steve Bartman – We’ve got to place the blame somewhere, right?

7. Opening Day – Hope Springs Eternal

6. $231 Million Dollars – And you thought your wife could spend a lot of money in a week.

5. 1984, 1989, 1998, 2003 – Something is better than nothing

4. Ron Santo – The Voice of ALL Cubs Fans, who should take his rightful place soon in the Hall of Fame

3. Ryne Sandberg – Hard Worker, Dignity and Class – who all Cubs’ players and fans should aspire to be

2. Harry Caray – If he had not come to the Northside, we’d all be Sox fans

1. Wrigley Field – The most beautiful place on the face of the earth PERIOD

Happy Thanksgiving from everyone here at the CCO
