So, we were driving back from Thanksgiving in North Carolina and...you know what it's like when you've been driving for 8 hours straight - you need a break.
We pulled into some rest stop just outside Illinois, and like every rest stop, they had a bunch of brochures.
I rubbed my eyes.
I was so tired but they all seemed to be about the Cubs somehow.
Destinations, places to go, things to see.
"Welcome to Optimism?
Do I want to go All The Way?
Visit Hope Springs, Illinois?
Thought maybe there was some delayed chemical reaction in my brain from all the marshmallow yams and Zinfandel.
Who wouldn't want to see Beautiful October?
Or go Deep with Anthony Rizzo, into the Win Column with Jake Arrieta, or simply experience Never Sucking at Baseball Again.
Count me in, man!
I was about to grab one that said "The World Series" when my wife said, "Come ON! We still have hours to go!"
I took a quick photo with my phone and we hauled.
Forgot about it til this morning.
