About Me

In 1969, I became fascinated by MLB, because of the infamous 1969 Cubbies.  Thus, began a love/hate relationship with sports' most futile franchise.  If Cubbies ever make it to the World Series, I'm either going to find a way to get a ticket to game or I am making a trek back to Chicago, as I HAVE to be there for that penultimate event.  Might even be more of a life-event for me than passing the bar!  Go Cubs Go!
