The Chicago Cubs, nearly double-digits behind first not long ago, moved into first place in the National League's Central Division with an exciting ninth-inning victory at Wrigley Field.
Aug. 1 could be the date talked about forever. The Cubs move into a tie with the Brewers and continue their stellar play since the beginning of June.
Could this be the year? With a couple of Louisiana products up the middle? And Kerry Wood out of the bullpen when all was thought lost?
Who knows, but Major League Baseball is a heck of a lot more exciting when the North Siders are in the hunt. Yes, folks, there are teams in the league beside the Yankees and Red Sox despite what ESPN may tell you.
Larry, you were right, I am coming to see a contender Monday in the Juice Box in Houston. However, hopefully now you can admit it's the boys in blue that are worth talking about.
Go Cubs Go. Go Cubs Go. Hey Chicago whatdaya say? The Cubs are going to win today!
