I didn't watch. Not even one pitch. The outcome was all too familiar to me. Cubs lose.
I almost got excited, but I contained myself. I knew if I became too involved, followed too closely, cared too much, I would feel pain.
I have had enough of this kind of pain in my life. No it is not about family, friends, or life or death issues like the economy.
Besides, I have kind of gotten used to it. Like that back pain I have had for forty years.
I won't point fingers or play the blame game.
Thanks for an exciting year Cubbies.
Wait til' next year!
