Waiting For Bryant

Waiting For Bryant
The Cubs killed a few baseballs Friday night in St. Louis, marking one of the most entertaining games in recent Cub fan memories since…well, probably sometime last week actually.  It has been an incredibly splendid time to be a Cubs fan despite their non-contender status and their still-in-progress building process.  The time will come, and...
