In a few weeks the Major League Baseball season will kick off and my Chicago Cubs will begin anew their perpetual quest to win the World Series. It's been 108 years since their last championship. For their season opener I plan to be on the couch with a cold beer in time to hear Pat Hughes open the radio broadcast with his traditional greeting, "Chicago Cubs baseball is on the air!"
My relationship with baseball, and with the Cubs specifically, is tied up in my relationship with my father. I recently told the story of being raised a Cubs fan here.
