It doesn’t matter what else is going on with the Cubs – it always, ALWAYS feels good when the Cubs beat the Cardinals. And this was a freaking exciting one, to boot.

The Cubs went down early thanks to some blunders, but they battled back, took the lead, lost the lead, and then took it again on a Luis Valbuena homer, and held on to win late. Happiness.
