The Cubs Are Going to Win It All This Year, Unless That Headline Just Cursed Them Forever (via GQ)

GQ — It is the weirdest feeling to walk into Wrigley Field and expect good things. This is Wrigley. Expectation doesn’t happen here. Hope, sure. Delirium, annually. Layering yourself a mental brickwork of psychological defense against a century of history, yes, as a matter of course. But when you’re sitting in the third-base grandstands and Addison Russell has just crushed a three-run homer for the lead in the eighth and the place feels like it’s going to explode it’s hard not to think one thing: Where the hell am I?

    Boy oh boy, this year is already so exciting! What a great bunch of young kids and Coach Madden is top notch. I’m going to try to enjoy each game without huge expectations but they really have made it fun to be a Cubs fan again. Even my Cardinals fan friends are pretty quiet these days. heh heh
