The Good Things of Baseball

26

It's from TwinkieTown and #1 on the list is about the Cubs, but somehow I still enjoyed it. 1. The Cubs still play in the afternoons. Other teams do too, on Sundays and on Wednesdays or Thursdays when they want to get out of town and get on a plane to the next city, but the Cubs still do it pretty regularly. And in the afternoons, maybe you have a little TV in the office that the boss let you hook up a while ago, or maybe you have a subscription that lets you watch the game on your computer. You turn on the game and there's Wrigley, same as it was when you were a kid and you were home sick from school. Rich folks in the stands, drunk college kids putting the make on each other in the bleachers. The Cubs are losing; the Cubs are always losing.
