In about a month, the defending World Champion Chicago Cubs are gonna take the field against the St. Louis Cardinals and all sense of balance will go out the window.
April 2, 2017 at 7:35 PM Central time I imagine it'll be Carlos Martinez throwing a fastball to Kyle Schwarber.
Schwarber up to bat?
Oh Em Gee.
I mean, it's already happening with balance leaning towards our favorite game.
My stupidstitions are already coming back - I read about David Price's elbow and now I can't step on a crack.
Those odd little conversations in elevators or with the cashier at the grocery store because you're wearing a Cubs hat.
People are putting their little car window W flags out.
Maybe a thousand tweets all saying what we already knew about Jon Lester (he's going to be the opening day starter in case you didn't hear).
Tomorrow (Saturday), the Cubs will be playing the Dodgers on WGN at 2:05 Chicago Time.
Which means about 1:58 I'll lose my balance.
Standing in front of the couch, all my body weight will shift to my ass end as I say goodbye Yin and hello Cubs.
I expect you'll do the same.
PS: Have you been turning on the Hawks lately? Hat tricks are sort of normal. I've seen 3 just recently. Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane are playing at a level that your stereo and my stereo can't go to. The other night against the Blues, the Hawks appeared to have so much speed and intensity that it was impossible to look away for even a moment because you'll miss something in that red blur. Anyway if you're not watching, you're missing something special.
Those guys are good.
Nothing could be cooler than two World Champions in our city.
