Man, it has been a long time! 95 years in fact – 1908 was the last time
the Cubs managed to win a post-season series. In my lifetime, it has been one
heartbreak after another. There was the collapse in 1969, the disaster in San
Diego in 1984, and the letdowns in 1989 and 1998. Not to mention the multitude
of losing seasons. Up until this year, I think I was one of about 120,000
people in the world that had ever seen the Cubs win a postseason game – I was
at their only victory in 1989 at Wrigley against the Giants.
Tonight, the Cubs won their division series against the Braves. Onto the NLCS!
