As many of you will remember, there was an "incident" around this time last year involving the Cubs getting swept and me having useless tickets to a non-existent game. So, this year we are taking no chances. Our tickets are for Game 1 of the NLDS, which is pretty much guaranteed to get played short of a natural disaster or the rapture.
This week, I will start to get a weird feeling in my belly (weirder than the normal feeling in my belly, which is saying something). It will be part excitement, part joy, part anticipation, and part dread. But mostly excitement, joy, and anticipation. I will also have the opportunity to see most of the readers of this blog in a few days (hi Mom), which is also nice.
Go Cubs Go!
