I still can’t believe it! My beloved Chicago Cubs took down the mighty St. Louis Cardinals Tuesday night to wrap up an epic series and set off a celebration that hasn’t been experienced by Cubs fans in, well, forever.
They did it! They really did it. This young team, not expected to do much this year, outplayed the class of the division and the league, their arch rivals to advance to the National League Championship Series. And they did it at home!
I can only imagine what it was like being inside the hallowed grounds of Wrigley Field for this game, or Game 3 the night before. Two amazing performances with tons of fireworks and drama…and two Cubs victories to win the series.
Cubs fans everywhere are going bonkers with jubilation, and I am included in that list. I danced in the street last night. I chest bumped a co-worker who’s a fellow Cubs fan at work this morning. My parents refurnished their bathroom cabinets yesterday to fend off the nerves of anticipation for the game. The excitement is overflowing!
It’s an amazing feeling, and I hope the Cubbies can keep it going. Congratulations, guys and thank you for providing a lot of people with a lot of joy.
