The Chicago Cubs have raised their banner and celebrated their world series. 108 years of toil, anonymity, monikers of losing, jokes and strife have now ended.
And so a new era begins. One of defense, being the hunted and hopeful repetition.
A dynasty in the making? Who knows? Time will tell. Time will tell, not the flowing obnoxiousness from Cubs fans. To be a dynasty, you must win and win and win.
Last I checked, the Cubs aren’t the “27” Yankees or the “76” Big Red Machine of Cincinnati. You’re the loveable losers, torn down, rebuilt and you have tasted the sweetest of success.
2016 has now passed. Remember it, revel in it, enjoy it and forever etch it into your baseball soul but 2017 has arrived. Remember this, since 1979 there have only been 3 teams to repeat as World Champions of baseball….and 2 of them were named Yankees.
One more thing…the more obnoxious you are when you’re on top, the more dirt that is kicked on your when you’re down. Just sayin’.
