Well, my Cubbies have dropped $300 million in the offseason and it has bought them a dugout fight between their vet catcher and pitching ace…and a suspended manager. Oh yeah, don’t forget them being fourth in their division 7.5 games out. Why oh why did I have to get WGN as a kid!?! So, yes, the Cubbies are quickly becoming irrelevant (as usual), but this time they paid $300 million to do it.
So what’s a Cubs fan to do? Watch college softball? Dang straight! I have been jonesing on some college softball this past week. The pace of the games is quick and the fan support and team morale is astonishing! The championship is being held in Okahoma City and every school has an avid fanbase at every game. The fever from the fans is intoxicating! I have thoroughly enjoyed it and yes….yes…my wife has even turned it on when I’m not around. WIth her being pregnant, it’s hard for her to watch an entire game, but she takes a quick nap and one of the first things she asks is who won. To me, that’s great! So, if you’re like me and don’t care about the NBA, NHL, or watching boxing in the dugout at Wrigley…catch some college sofball this week. It’s down to Tennessee vs. Arizona in a best-of-3 series and it rocks.
Oh yeah, the Cubs…is it already “Maybe next year” time?
