Today is the day! Doesn’t the offseason feel so much shorter when the Cubs win the World Series in November instead of bowing out a month earlier? Well now it is exactly five months later and all the records listed on the “Standings” section of your ESPN app read “0-0” and that means the Cubs have work to do.
But as we sit down in front of the television in our living room or lay next to our laptop in bed or sit in front of that guy that sweats just a little too much at Wrigley, we will all be watching something brand new. We will be watching the Chicago Cubs defend their World Series title. Sure the roster is nearly identical to last year. Of course these kids are just one year older. But this baseball team taking the field is a team full of champions.
Here’s to defending that title and making new championship memories. Here’s to another year of Chicago Cubs baseball!
