Haiku for Game 2 – Let’s Go, Cubs!

one game down is not
the end of the world (series).
lose the blues, Cubbies!

In 1984, the Chicago Cubs made it into the postseason for the first time since 1945, climbing as far as the National League Championship Series before losing their chance to go to the World Series to the San Diego Padres. It seemed like the whole nation was rooting for the Cubs that year. During the post-game TV wrap-up after the Padres had clinched it, an tear-streaked elderly woman bedecked with Cubs gear from head to toe summed it up for all of us, saying:

They wouldn’t be our Cubbies if they didn’t break our hearts.

That’s bittersweet fan loyalty at its best!  But this is a different year.  Shake it off, Cubbies!

Signs like this are all over the Windy City

Note:  the references to the lyrics of Chicago, immortalized by Frank Sinatra’s version, are for my Dad.
