This is my second year of following the Chicago Cubbies. Chuck has followed them ALL HIS LIFE!!! During that time they have NEVER won the pennant. This year (up to now) promised to be exciting and possibly the END of that dry run.
Last night and the night before they lost badly. Today could be the clincher for them again; if they lose this one it is goodbye until next year.
Gee, if I could ask for a great birthday present for Chuck...could you just let them have the stupid pennant this year and then we can all go back to sleep again!
