Go Cubs!

The Cubs opened the season with three games in Arizona. They won the first game, although in such an exaggerated fashion that the veteran fan went from "Yes, this is exactly what I wanted this year!" to "Uh, oh, this is obviously just a fluke." Sure enough, they stunk up the place for the next two games and return to Wrigley with a 1 and 2 record.

I won't be at the home opener today, but I'll be at both games this weekend, and attending next Tuesday's afternoon game with Joe "Opposable Thumbs" Bannerman and his special lady Tina. As a Cubs fan I'm both wildly optimistic and utterly fatalistic, so my fantasy isn't that they win all three games, but take two of the three. As well, I'll apparently get to see the return of the injured Mark Prior on Tuesday (assuming he doesn't get delayed again), so that's cool. I'll also get to see Greg Maddux and Carlos Zambrano pitch, and I've pretty awesome seats in three radically different locations.

Anyway, if you want to see what sort of mood I'm in on Monday, just watch the box scores in your local newspaper this weekend.
