Remember when the Cubs won the World Series?

Remember when the Cubs won the World Series?
Euphoria. A happiness that almost felt illegal to feel. A joy that had not been experienced in a lifetime. These are all things that describe my feeling on the night of November 2nd when the Chicago Cubs won the World Series. Does anyone remember that night? A fellow blogger over at “I’ve Got The Hippy...

Cubs first World Series home game: where will you be and how much will you spend?

Cubs first World Series home game: where will you be and how much will you spend?
I’m annoyed. Yes, annoyed. I love the Cubs more than most things in life – always have. They defined my childhood and have been a good part of my adult life’s entertainment, angst and all. But the fact that I can’t even think about going to a Cubs World Series home game after the number... Read more »

Cubs win the NLDS: Now it's getting serious
Dear Cubs, WOW, just WOW. The greatest post season comeback in history. You did it. I am still in a state of shock and I’m guessing you are too. No one does that – I mean no one!! And yet, you did. But now, it’s time to get serious. In 2003 I was at the... Read more »

An open letter to Tom Ricketts: If the Cubs play in the world series, give free tickets to lifelong Cubs fans over the age of 80
Dear Mr. Ricketts, As a lifelong Cubs fan I have spent thousands of hours wishing and hoping that I will someday live to see your team play in a World Series. It’s hard to even imagine the joy and thrill of having that experience and wonder if this, this year of 2016, is truly THE... Read more »

Playing golf: the ultimate getaway from election 2016

Playing golf: the ultimate getaway from election 2016
Golf. Once upon a time I viewed it as a four letter word right up there with the worst of them. My husband has spent a good part of the last thirty years we have been married on the golf course. It took him away on summer weekends, left me carless on many a vacation... Read more »

ESPN's Britt McHenry and her temper tantrum - suspension or should she be fired?

ESPN's Britt McHenry and her temper tantrum - suspension or should she be fired?
Let’s just start with the tantrum, since this is what type of behavior is being discussed across the country right now: I haven’t written much as of late but after seeing this I feel compelled to comment. The old saying “you can’t judge a book by its cover”? How true, how true. To look at... Read more »

Cubs opening day: Just once I'd like to have reason to hope

Cubs opening day: Just once I'd like to have reason to hope
Once upon a time and a very long time ago it was, I had hope. Oh sure, I have hope for many things – for Bravo to have a Real Housewives of Chicago, for Tim Gunn to seek me out for Project Runway; things like that. But for many years now, I have to admit... Read more »

The Chicago Cubs: in twenty years I hope I don't have to write this

The Chicago Cubs: in twenty years I hope I don't have to write this
Dear Cubs, It’s 2033. I am 75 years old and I have been with you guys a long time. Since 1969. Hell that’s a couple of lifetimes to some. But one thing has never changed: you still haven’t won a World Series. I stopped going to games back in 2013. I went to your last... Read more »

The Stanley Cup, The Blackhawks and the fact that I don't like hockey

The Stanley Cup, The Blackhawks and the fact that I don't like hockey
Yes, that’s right. I don’t like hockey. It’s not that I hate it, I just don’t feel anything for it. Right now I’m feeling like I’m un-American or that I should suddenly jump on a band wagon that I don’t care to be on. I just don’t like the game. I don’t get it. I... Read more »

Hope for the Cubs, from a Giants fan

Hope for the Cubs, from a Giants fan
Earlier in the week I wrote about the Chicago Cubs and how all we as fans have is hope. I received this wonderful response and would like to share it. So, my first guest post ever, courtesy of a San Francisco Giants fan, in support of our beloved Cubs. He writes: Dear Teppi Jacobsen, I... Read more »
