 What Joy!  
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 ....
the ups 
the downs
the hopes,
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.

I think it was one of the best games ever, with the perfect result! But talk about a roller coaster ride - whew!

It's worth running on fumes today at work, though. Wow.

I'm watching the game tonight and I can't wait! I went to bed and Bill woke me and said, "You did it!" At first I didn't believe the Cubs actually won. What a great day. Happy Birthday Zach!!!

I totally do not get baseball's appeal, but I am happy that it brought you such joy.

Congrats! I was thinking of you all night. I had a Chicago style hot dog for dinner in celebration.

Yay for the cubs! The Gardener stayed up way past his bed time to watch and cheer them on.

Since I have not a single gene for sports, I don't exactly understand your joy but I can be happy for you!

I think this was just the most spectacular thing ever. And, yes BRAVO Cubbies!

All through that crazy game we were thinking of you, Kathy! Have you recovered yet from that cliff hangar? Jill and whole family slept through the alarms! We benefitted from our Time Zone for once. So glad for some upbeat news!
