Chicago Cubs: Finding joy in a bad situation

Fans of baseball flock to the ballpark, or their television, to watch their teams win. When this is not the case, it can be painful to stomach. It can be especially tricky at certain times, such as blowouts because all we want is for the game to be over.

Despite the 7-1 final score Monday night, the bright spot in the game became the fact that Anthony Rizzo pitched. As easy as it was to find oneself upset about Luke Farrell’s start, Cubs fans can take solace in that there was a feel-good story in the slugger’s pitching debut.

As the saying goes, “you have to take the good with the bad, smile with the sad.” Monday night no doubt was disappointing. However, games such as those do happen. The best things fans can do is to enjoy the little moments, one of which is watching Anthony Rizzo pitch.

It could end up being something that can keep this fan base close when games such as this get out of hand. In times such as those, keep Rule 32 in mind – Enjoy the little things.
