WAKE UP: It’s Opening Day

Chicago Cubs News

After a particularly long Spring Training, and a seemingly-long offseason – and after a few down years, which only make the offseasons seem longer – the 2013 Chicago Cubs baseball season is finally here.

No, it doesn’t look particularly bright for the on-field product. But, today, if no other day, you can allow yourself to say things like, “Well, you never know,” and “But the A’s and Orioles!” However we quantify the downside – and it is considerable – this is a sport in which, truly, anything can happen. I’ll hope for a win for the Cubs today, and I’ll take tomorrow when tomorrow comes.

Go Cubs. Go baseball. Go Opening Day.
