Cubs Win! Cubs Win! Cubs Win!

My cat Bitzie thought I’d lost my damned mind last night.  She doesn’t understand waiting until next year for 108 years.  It takes a special kind of crazy to be a die-hard, loyal Chicago Cubs fan.

Most of us were in total shock when we realized we wouldn’t be saying “wait until next year” again this year.  The Cubs won the World Series in the 10th inning of Game 7!  We collectively cried tears of joy, shock, and awe.

Last night was the first time I wished I could be back in Chicago in my old neighborhood (Grace and Lake Shore Drive) since I moved to WA State in 1999.  My FB friend Warren Tipton was there, and I celebrated vicariously through him this morning.  Apparently, the bars never closed in Chicago last night.  Fans were still celebrating outside Wrigley Field when the morning news shows aired this morning.  Oh, happy day!

Bravo, Chicago Cubs!  Bravo!  Jack Brickhouse must be smiling from heaven today.

  1. Way to go Caroline! You’re a beautiful, sexy Cubs fan! Love reading you! Glad we’re friends!


  2. I heard this story, but I thought it was for a game in Cleveland. I saw her photo on the news sitting next to him in the front row. It is a night she’ll never, ever forget, eh?

    Now that I think about the photo, it looked more like Wrigley Field than the stadium in Cleveland. Wonder if the reporter got it wrong.

  3. Thanks, Warren!

    It has been a blast celebrating virtually with you. Have you gotten any sleep yet? How do you like seeing your name in print? LOL. You should know I have an international audience of over 700K people.

    Sending hugs and best wishes,

  4. Love it Caroline! You’re the SUPERSTAR! I’m happy to be among your fans and admirers!
