Cubs Fact:

In 2007, the Chicago Cubs signed Alfonso Soriano to an eight-year, $136 million deal. It was the most expensive contract the cubs had ever made at the time.

I purchased his jersey when we signed him. I figured he was going to be around for awhile and was going to at least be good if not great for us. I was right with one of those predictions. I started out wearing the jersey with pride. That was followed by not wearing it at all. Eventually I actually started wearing it again in an ironic way. That douchiness(sp) didn't last long. finally last year I was able to start wearing it again. This time I really can't see not wearing it. To turn it around last year showed a lot of work, listening to new coaches and pride in the product he was putting on the field. The next time I go to a game it will definitely be with that jersey.
