Ain't this a great T-shirt?? My sentiments exactly.
They did it. National League Central Division champions.
No more yelling at the TV. No more turning it off because I can't watch anymore. The motto this season was "It's Gonna Happen." I truly believe it now.
Today is the final day of the regular season, with the Cubs traveling most likely to Arizona for the Division Series opener Wednesday. Let's hope Carlos Zambrano pitches like he did Friday when the Cubs shut out the Reds 6-0 to clinch.
The Milwaukee Brewers put up quite a fight, but in the end the better team really did win out.
Thanks Cubs -- first to my three favorite players, Mark DeRosa, Ted Lilly and Ryan Theriot. The other difference-makers? Alfonso Soriano, Aramis Ramirez, Derrek Lee and last but not least, Jacque Jones. And how can I not mention Kerry Wood, Carlos Marmol, Bob Howry and Daryle Ward?
Michael Barrett? Sorry buddy. Your fight with Z banished you to San Diego. But you will forever be one of my all-time favorites for sucker-punching A.J. Pierzynski of the White Sox last season.
Bleedcubbieblue.com is an excellent Cubs blog and should be checked out. Also, the Go Cubs Go! song has been remixed. Check it out here.
Now if the Bears could just get their act together. Canning Rex Grossman was a good start.
World Series or bust baby. I can feel it.
