A hero will be born in Pittsburgh on Wednesday night. In what way, shape or form is unclear, but as a Cubs’ fan I won’t care who it is. In 36 years, I’ve not endured some of the pain that other fans have endured. Then again, young fans haven’t gotten to see much success. I’m squarely in the middle I suppose.

But what I do hope for is for a hero, or a story to come out of this game that leads the Cubs to the postseason so I can tell stories about is as I grow older. Sure, I’ll be sure to embellish them a bit. But as long as they’re based in fact to begin with, that’s perfectly okay. Oh, and be sure to #FlyTheW on Twitter!
