Gone To The Dark Side


In a household of rabid Cub fans, I have managed to maintain my distance from baseball for the length of our marriage. Last week I broke down. I watched the Cubbies take down the Pirates 4-0 Wednesday night. And then instead of going out Friday we ordered a pizza and watched them lose to the Cardinals 0-4. Last night it was Burger King and watching them win over the Cardinals 6-3.
Tonight....hopefully we'll be clicking bats.

  4. Amazing how that can creep up on you. My husband loves football (both kinds: soccer and American football.) I have never been into sports, but . . . now I do look forward to the Superbowl each year.

  6. I'm a Tigers, Brewers, and Orioles fan - I haven't followed closely this year because of jobs and book work, so I'm not even sure who is left in the playoffs!

    Hopefully the Cubs win to break their curse. :)

  9. Hi, Sandra! I played baseball in an 8 to 12 league and a 13 to 15 league, sponsored by F.O.E. - the Fraternal Order of Eagles. Have a wonderful week, dear friend Sandra!

  12. I know nothing about baseball, but my husband is rooting for the Cubs based on something that happened in Back to the Future 2? I believe there was some comment about 2015 being the year the Cubs finally won the World Series?

  14. My brother is a true Baseball fanatic since he was a kid. In fact he worked for a magazine and wrote the backs of many baseball cards and also did the pricing of what the cards are worth. I, on the other hand, know there are 9 innings and they swing a bat at the ball. Right now Canada is Blue Jays crazy! Many people didn;t go to work on Friday to see the game...Jays lost. I think there is another game tonight but I will be watching Dancing With The Stars:)

  15. Sometimes if you can't beat 'em, you join 'em. I have embraced rugby league in the same way. I really enjoy it now. :-)
