Let the Celebration Begin
Chicago is leading 3-0. Bottom of 7th inning. I’m on my way up to Wrigley Field. Pray for my safe return.
Update @ 11:15pm: They say don’t count your chickens before they are hatched and it looks like I did that earlier tonight. The CUBS were six outs away from going to the World Series tonight when I left my house. Specifically, at exactly 9:20pm, I left for Wrigley Field. By the time I got there around 9:34pm, the score was 8-3 in favor of the Marlins. I just couldn’t believe that in such a short time, things had gone so horribly wrong. I stood around with the other 10,000+ fans and listened to the radio broadcast in disbelief. Everything was in place for a victory celebration. Then things just fell apart. Thankfully, the CUBS get one more chance tomorrow night. Hopefully, they don’t choke. I do so want to see them make it to the World Series. As for whether or not I’ll go back up there tomorrow night, well, thinking I’ll stay home until I know for sure they’ve won because as the saying goes: it ain’t over until it’s over.” I believe! Do you believe?
