I remember mid-nineties, when Greg Maddux was king of the hill and in the prime of his career with Atlanta.
The Braves were coming to town, and Bob Verdi (still a Chicago sportswriting God) wrote an article basically saying: get out to the freaking park.
History was happening, and you could go watch him live.
At that moment, he was as good as anybody ever was or will be.
I missed it.
I can't remember what I was doing, but I missed it.
And that year he won another Cy Young and yada yada yada.
You don't want that on your brain later.
Right now your First Place Chicago Cubs are possibly making history, and they are sooo... smokin'... hot.
Despite that stupid little Pirate win today.
(That was an exhaustive, heroic effort they put forth in Milwaukee - I totally expected a let-down today.)
No matter where you live, find a way to get to the park.
The August of this magical 2008 season.
Just... be there.
