Chicago Cubs Saved Baseball

I hate parades. I loved them when I was a kid but to me, parades represent standing in cold weather watching paper mache` floats and well, freezing my butt off. Truthfully, I don’t really know why I’m not a big fan of parades. For the one that will happen today in Chicago at 9amCT, I wish I were there for this one. All the information you’ll need is right here.

The Chicago Cubs Won the World Series. The ultimate prize in baseball was won by the ultimate “losers” and people love the story but what happens now? What goal do Cubs fans chase now? Has anyone prepared for this day? I know I need some down time and a trip to Cooperstown to meditate in those hallowed halls with my family and enjoy the moment.

What happens next year? The perennial underdogs aren’t underdogs anymore. Fans won’t have anything to complain about and the Cubs will have other teams trying to take the title away.

Baseball has changed now. The Cubs winning the World Series represents a shift in the way people view America’s pastime. No more is it like watching paint dry, as some folks compare it to. Really though, I hate painting perhaps that’s why I love baseball. This Cubs team was a centre stage for the game. People tuned in everywhere and fans north of the border switched their allegiance to the Toronto Blue Jays over to the Cubs. Will baseball experience a renaissance?

This is a new beginning for the Cubs, their fans and baseball. The epic World Series showcased all that was right about the game and for many, a chance and a moment to believe in something that once was thought unattainable.

I’d love to see a dynasty again. I want the Cubs to be the team to beat. Parity is overrated. Some players won’t be back. Dexter Fowler will be shopping for a new home but for the core, they’ll be back. If we thought this year was nuts, there’s one thing that Cubs fans know to be true; they’ve lived it and breathed it  for years.

Wait until next year.

Believe it
