Hard to overstate what these days mean to loyalists on the North Side of Chicago. How many years and generations of disappointment ?

Cub fans know and feel it.

For the rest of us, this video recalling Jack Brickhouse gives one a bit of an idea what it’s been like over  the years – the hopefulness, the disappointment, the love. How many did not live to see today.

So, to Cub fans today and the spirit of those now gone, congrats and enjoy !

On to the World Series – and another feel good story: the Cleveland Indians.

Strange times indeed.
