I don’t think we ever had a proper celebration of the Cubs here in MIP Land! When it happened, it was the culmination of a great week in baseball – the no-hitter, the one-hitter that we were able to be at, and then, suddenly – They won! I also didn’t want to jinx anything, so I’m laying low on the prognostications. Is that the right word? Whatever it is, I’m laying low on it. Mark DeRosa has a sore calf. I’m trying to figure out where to send him the peanut butter cookies and aspirin so he can be better. In the Great Debacle of the Foul Ball back in ’03ish, I accidentally ruined their chances by going to the store and buying a Cubs shirt and shorts for pj’s and, then, upon returning home, discovering I had bought New York Yankees shorts. That night the Foul Ball Incident occurred and I have never forgiven myself. Although, I did keep the Yankees shorts. They’re super comfy!
Here is the final schedule and how it looks on my fridge now (My kids put a “Queen of the Kitchen” sticker on the bottom of it, which kinda ruined the “Sports Are Cool & I’m a Cool Mom” image I’m trying to instill into their brains. They put me back in my place, that’s fer shure.)
