You may have noticed that I haven't posted a "W" flag in quite a while. As a true Cubs' fan, I'm always reluctant to crow too loud when things are going well. That's because, as soon as you get your hopes up too high, they'll knock the bleacher seat right out from under you. BUT, this year is just looking too good to sit by and not hope for really BIG things. As we speak, our "Boys in Blue" have the best record in ALL of Major League baseball with 33 wins. I'm stopping right here and, in true blue fan fashion, I'm going to drive my Edsel to the nearest 8-track dealer to buy some Disco tapes to listen to while shooting some photos with my new Polaroid camera.
By the way, I've been told that some of you don't understand the significance of the "W" flag. Very simply, after a Cubs' win, they raise a white flag with a large W above Wrigley Field so that passersby and folks riding the "EL" are made aware of the victory.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
