And on that note, I was talking to a friend of mine the other day and was trying to explain to them that it really didn't matter if the Cubs won the Series or not because they already won a championship. To me, winning the League is a real thing and worthy of celebrating. You get rings for that. You get to raise The Pennant. It's a real championship. I know that in this day and age, that's a championship that's a bit watered-down but it's still real. So congratulations to the Cubs and their fans. I guess.
Also, I learned something about myself this week. I've been watching the Series and enjoying it. When the Blawkhawks were in the Stanley Cup finals and winning Cups, I couldn't watch a second of it. So I've learned that I hate the Hawks much more than I hate the Cubs. That's not to say that I've been rooting for the Cubs. That ain't happening. But I've enjoyed the playoffs and the Series and I'll have no problem tipping my hat to the Cubs and their fans if they defeat the Native American Aboriginal First Nation People of Cleveland. Hurray for self-knowledge.
