I actually feel sorry for Edo Sindicich and all of the Edos out there who have fallen prey to “that old Cubs feeling.”
Edo and his sister, Laura, flew in from south Florida yesterday to join throngs of Cubs fans from around the world who descended on Wrigleyville yesterday to watch the Cubs lose to Cleveland in game four of the World Series. That puts the Indians up 3-1, spawning “that old Cubs feeling” we all know and despise.
It's 4:12 in the morning on the Saturday after the Cubs lost 1-0 in the third game of the World Series against Cleveland. It was the first time in 71 years that the World Series came to Wrigley Field. What a freaking stressful game.
Alexis and I watched it in our living room since we have a full day ahead in Wrigleyville. That's right. We're headed up to Cubs Crazyland to sit in a bar and also walk around doing Facebook Live videos. Anyone from the Region who's heading up there, hit me up on Facebook and maybe I'll interview you... if you're not too drunk.
It's Friday morning at 2:39am in radioland. Since radio stations AM 1230 WJOB and 104.7 FM never sleep, often I don't either. It's a little embarrassing when you and the wife come home after walking around Wicker Park and you lay on the couch and halfway through Anderson Cooper you can hear yourself snoring. It's loud enough that you wake yourself up, look at the clock, shake your head and trounce up to bed.
It's 9am on a Sunday morning so where the hell do you think that Alexis and I are?
She's lying on the couch, still in her Cubs tee-shirt. I'm sitting on the leather chair typing to the three or four of you while Chuck Todd talks on "Meet the Press." It's a ritual. Alexis makes eggs over medium with bacon (don't tell daughter Jeanie) and I make whole wheat waffles on the iron that I got for my birthday.
