The Magic Number just dropped to zero! With a big shutout win by Big Z over the Reds and with Greg Maddux and the Padres beating the Brewers, the Cubs are officially headed to the playoffs for the first time since 2003. It’s been so hard to get excited about the post season with all of the division lead changes lately, but it’s finally over. Now I can finally grow back my nails and start dreaming of a Cubs-Red Sox World Series!
It’s been a wild ride this summer, and I’m so happy that the Cubbies stuck with it and kept fighting all season long. It’s going to be awesome walking around Saint Louis with my Cubs hat on with pride. You wouldn’t believe the dirty looks I’ve gotten wearing that hat around here. I can’t wait to see what these goof ball Cardinals fans have to say now.
