108 Years…109?



How much time has passed

Two World Wars, Korea, Vietnam, The Cold War, Iraq, Afghanistan

Presidents from Roosevelt, the first one to Obama, to well we will leave that one alone

Stock Market crashes, men to the moon, computers and cell phones

Tragedies from the Titanic, the Hindenburg to 9-11

We have seen so much as a society over these past 108 years

The only thing unseen was a Cubs World Series Win

The outs come closer, the time is growing near

Will 108 be done or will it go to 109

Remembering my Uncle Earl sitting on his couch watching the Cubbies on WGN

Those lovable losers, names like Ernie Banks, Dave Kingman, Ryne Sandberg and so many more

Sometimes very close, but not just enough

For my friend Jim who bleeds Cubby blue

The time I think is now

End the curse of the goat and say an apology to Bartman

It is the year of the Cubs

Fly the “W” proudly

Unless they really screw it up over these last couple innings then, I guess just wait until next year.

Looks like they are going to give it up again

Heartbreak in the streets of Chicago, we will see

Do we stop at 108 or go on to 109

Cubs Win Cubs Win!!!!!
