Thanks to each and everyone of you who sent the good luck.
I am hoarse.
I am happy.
It is just a game, but it felt like so much more than that.
It felt like family , because we all texted each other throughout the entire post season each and every game.
Thank you all (Ruth Ann from Michigan too!)
some of you texted me after WE Won.
Some of you emailed me.
I appreciate each loving gesture.
It feels so darn good.
And it felt so awful in the 8th ....
I have to say I was trying to cheerlead the family in the 9th and 10th.
I kept saying the rain delay was for regrouping!
And it was.
I kept saying, WE CAN DO THIS.
We have come back in extra innings before..
I'm not entirely sure I believed myself, but someone had to hope.
I managed to knit on angora fingerless to the tenth.
Then I just had to put it down.
There is joy in Mudville.....
let's rewrite the poem.
As Bill Murray said, We are loveable losers, lets be loveable winners . I believe there was no shenanigans in Chicago last night.
Pure happy celebrations.
Thank you all.
(Cleveland and Ohioans Your day will come.
I know I know I really know your pain.
We all do.
And Someday you'll go all the way!)
We no longer bleed Cubbie blue.
