Go Cubs Go!
While there are plenty of people that are Cub’s fans through and through, it is a great time to be a fan of the Chicago Cubs even if it is just for this season. This year has been amazing already, but the good that I see is in the people.
The Cubs bring people together. Although I have not attended any games this year, my daughters did attend together with some other people. They watched; they talked; they cheered; they were in a community of people who wanted the Cubs to win.
It can also connect you to history and to your family. One friend of mine informed me that the Chicago Cubs is synonymous with tradition. She told me that they are housed at Wrigley Field, which is the second oldest field left. Nadine concluded with, “I love that I can watch a game in the same place that my grandma did in 1913.”
Another good from being a Cub’s fan is that it can help you be creative. Every year we have a ginger bread cookie decorating contest. I remember the year that my daughter, Morgan, made a cub’s cookie. In the middle of winter, she was still inspired by the cubbies.
When you are a fan, it is appropriate to be comfortable in hats and t-shirts. Even when I was in Colorado, people were wearing Cub shirts and hats. You can also be creative in what you wear; plus no one makes fun of me when I break out my Cub shirts and crazy hats.
Being a Cub’s fan right now is also bringing hope to people. They believe in them and dream of the day that they will be in the World’s Series. A friend of mine, Joe, just said, “This year the CUBS will finally be transformed from the “lovable losers” into the “millennial victors!”
We can feel this hope together, and it feels so good!
While it is easy to focus on the negative aspects of life, I choose to continue looking for the good in people, in the world, in my life or even just in my day.
