a very hopeful heart

My husband my husband my husband. I see these signs around Chicago and I can't help but think of him. He is excited. And rightfully so.

Me? Of course I love the Cubbies! But he's the real tried & true, 2003-depressed-on-the-couch-with-5-outs-away-from-the-World-Series-Steve Bartman-ball-fiasco kind of fan.

As a Chicago native, he's known Cubs pain a long time. He's so excited, and very optimistic.

No jinxes here, just words of encouragement.

For a very long time the Red Sox fans knew exactly the feelings you guys are having now- the excitement- the this could be it kind of anticipation. It's a weird combination of optimism and dread...

Yesterday, in preparation for the post-season, I was looking back on this article, you and your Hubby might really like it:

Sadly, the original thread is gone now, but the article gives you the general idea.

Best of Luck!

I don't watch baseball, but I hope your team wins.

We're Orioles fans at my house. Sad, so very sad. Good luck to your Cubs though since the Orioles will probably never make another playoff, let alone a World Series. I think I might switch to soccer. No, seriously, GO CUBS!

Well we're Yankees fans in my family. My dad was born in New York and we've always rooted them on. But for your husband I'll say this once: GO CUBS!

I'll keep my fingers crossed for your hubby and for your cubbies!

My fingers are crossed for The Cubbies. That's my DH's team also.
