So this evening I found myself watching a Cubs game…of my own free will…and I actually enjoyed it!
Residual effect from attending a game at Wrigley Field last week as part of a work outing maybe? (Had a great hot dog by the way, with the best pickle relish I think I’ve ever had.) Of course, it doesn’t hurt that the Cubs are in first place and playing really well. I’m the first to admit that in the very few times that I’ve chosen to watch a sporting event, its involved a team I had a personal attachment to (home team, alma mater) and only when competing for the BIG prize. I fully expect that when they go back to sucking and don’t stand a snowball’s chance in hell of being in contention for the BIG prize, I’ll go back to completely ignoring the sport, and the Cubs.
But that won’t be until next year.
