It's Been Real
So I've decided that there's nothing better than forcing other people to read your opinions and viewpoints on various issues of the world. I haven't had this much power since I could control my little sister's every move. And I have to say, that I have enjoyed it. Sadly, the semester is coming to an end and so must my portion of this blog. I could continue writing, but I think that the world has had enough of me and my Cubs.
All I, and other Cubs fans, can do now is look towards next year. Before we know it, baseball will be upon us once more and the drama and excitement will unfold like it always does. This year was very productive for the Cubs and if they play like they did (minus the post-season) it should be another great year for them. There is no doubt that Lou Piniella will learn from his mistakes, that Derek Lee will be more aggressive at the plate in the post-season, the injuries will fade, and the various trades will enhance the team. The Cubs are a team of tradition and struggle but their time will come. I have every bit of faith that if we continue to support them, our dream of a World Series Title will come true.
Since this is my last post, I guess I'd just like to say thanks to those of you who actually read what I had to write. I know it was never easy and I know that some of the readers disagreed intensely with what I had to say. Thanks to the other contributors to this blog and if they are planning to keep on writing, good luck! If I have learned anything from starting a blog, it's that you have a responsibility to your readers to provide interesting information, develop a voice and character that people can relate to, and be relatively recent with your posts. Writing has always been fun but being able to write things that reach so many different people has certainly been a thrill. Even if you hated everything I wrote, I don't really care because I had fun.
So, this is it. So long. Peace, Love, Crabs. (Like Joe's Crabshack)
