The month of October is busy as it is. School is in full swing. After school activities. Homework and projects. Multiple birthday parties. A week of Halloween activities and fun. Every day planned.
Then throw in the Chicago Cubs and playoff baseball.
I learned the game with my Dad. I sat with him watching the Cubs win some and lose most. I grew up playing softball. I know the game and some of the obscure rules. But this game takes patience.
We are more of a fast-paced-Chicago-Blackhawks-hockey-loving family. Baseball is, well, just not the same. Unless we are watching playoffs. More exciting than the long 100-plus game season.
And we haven't missed a game. I dug out my Cubbie Blue shirts from the back of my closet. We are the October fans of baseball. The excitement. The hits. The home runs and Grand Slam. The amazing play after play after play.
The gift of winning. But, oh, is it stealing time. And many, many late nights.
Tonight I watch and dream about stealing time with ... One. More. Game.
Let's go, Cubbies! Bring Chicago a World Series Win! #FlytheW
