My older son stopped by yesterday for a Father's Day BBQ with his dad and his son. We spent the afternoon talking Blackhawks hockey, and watching the Cubs finally winning against the Angels. It was nice. I am sure that scenario was duplicated in many Chicago homes yesterday.
The quote of the day was however, "What have I got to look forward to now that hockey season is over?'
Even though the Cubs won yesterday, they are having a horrible season. Not much is going on on the field. There isn't even a super star, a baseball record, or a Cubs moment coming up to get excited about.
I was surprised at what my son was saying. I expected him to call me a fair weather fan, instead he was saying what I was thinking. He also said, that you would have thought that some time in the last 100 years you would have though the Cubs would have won a World Series, if just by odds, or even a fluke.
So what are we to do now that the the Blackhawks are done playing hockey?
Count down the days until Piniella is gone.
