Chicago Cubs: A change of fates
Kind of going back to that disastrous ninth inning Wednesday, that was such a key element of “Cubsdom” over the years. And yet with their backs against the wall, they won. That is something that this team the past four years has done so much of. So many of these epic wins just this past season were rarities for so long, and each one has proven to be huge.
One may ask, “Would the pre-2015 have won that game after that ninth inning?” Well we do not know for sure, but what we do know is that the Cubs lost in similar fashion on a number of occasions over the years. Does the past really matter at all? No, it does not. It just makes one stop and think about this era of Cubs baseball.
Before fans treasured seasons that eventually ended in heartbreak like 1969, 1984 or 2003. Now actual playoff runs and a championship are treasured. What was once gold is now irrelevant dust, even if that dust still has a few good scattered memories swirling in our minds.
I will say it once and I will say it again: buckle up Cubs fans.
