Chicago Cubs: Remembering two fan favorites from the late 2000 teams
Chicago Cubs: Even in tough times, good memories live on
Many Cubs’ fans will call these recent years the golden age of Cubs’ baseball and they would be correct. However, for me, I don’t look back on 2010, 2011 and 2012 as the bad years.
Instead, I remember them as a time when I enjoyed watching the Cubs without the pressure of them having to be good. Don’t get me wrong, I love the fact that the Cubs are playing meaningful baseball and making deep runs into the postseason.
There’s just something about being a kid again and not having a care in the world, just watching baseball and enjoying every minute of it (unless Carlos Marmol was on the mound).

I would never give up the last three years of Cubs’ baseball for anything. What Theo and the front office has done for this franchise is amazing. They have turned the culture of Cubs’ baseball around forever.
However, it is the years leading up to these last three years that I will remember as my first exposure to the Chicago Cubs. For that reason, I look back on those years as the good old days that I will never forget.
