Chicago Cubs: With the NFL season over, it’s time to focus on baseball
The National League Football’s season is officially over which means it’s time for Chicago Cubs and baseball fans, in general, to turn their attention to the 2016 baseball season.
Sure, you still have the NBA, but the San Antonio Spurs and Golden State Warriors are dominating the Western Conference and appear to be the favorites to bring home yet another championship to their franchise.
Sorry for not being too excited about it, I just so happen to be a fan of the Los Angeles Lakers. And yes, before Kobe Bryant arrived on the scene.

Now, in case you missed it, Peyton Manning was backed up by a ferocious defense that sacked Carolina Panthers and NFL MVP, Cam Newton, a whopping seven times in their 24-10 victory.
Super Bowl MVP Von Miller led the charge with 2.5 of his own and two key forced fumbles that both scored a touchdown and set up the dagger at the beginning and end of the game.
There’s no doubt that this will be the last time we see Manning on the field as an active player which is really upsetting if you’ve been a fan of his since the beginning. Yes, I am a huge fan of the Chicago Bears, but you can’t help but appreciate what he has done for the world of professional football.
With that being said, we’re officially 10 days away until pitchers and catchers report. What’s, even more, exciting, is knowing that N.L. Cy Young winner, Jake Arrieta will be with the club after agreeing to a one-year deal this past Friday.
Hopefully, the Chicago Cubs will provide some motivation to those Monsters of the Midway by winning a World Series. Both the Cubs and Bears are the only teams who haven’t celebrated a championship in the city of Chicago in a very long time, so it would be nice to see them reach the promise land within the next year or so.
