Seriously, how could I ever forget 1984? I came home every day from school to watch them on WGN. It was the most exciting season I have ever watched. Partly because of my age and unadulterated love of the team that seemed to always be down by a run or two late in the game and somehow someway always come back and win. Actually, I have never gone back to look at the game logs because I don't want to ruin the memory of the team I have in my head as I realize they weren't always down and didn't always come back, but in my memory, they did.

 

I kinda suspect that for many of us around here that was our Cubs coming-of-age.  I remember those playoffs so well.  Watched the games on a 15" B&W Zenith TV (we honestly didn't have a color TV until … '86 or '87).  I remember that last game especially, and how the mac & cheese turned to ashes in my mouth as the game went on.

That truly was a magical summer (move over summer of '69). I guess I got to big time it with a huge console TV that sat right on the floor.

Well, that was quite the hissy fit.

 

 

 

 

I believe it is spelled "hippie fit".


Please don't feed the psychos.

1906

1907

1908

1910

1929

1945

1989

1994

1998

2003

2007

2008

And others

Was '94 supposed to be '84?  When I glossed over it, I thought you were being ironic and silly putting '94 since NO ONE made the playoffs in '94.  Then I read it closer and noticed, "Oh.  No '84."  How does anyone over the age of 30 miss '84?

 

Other years are

1918

1932

1935

and 1938.

Yes, 1994 was meant to be 1984. 

Liars!  You're all liars!

I was 1 and change that summer so I was a tid-bit young.  My first experience with the Cubs was 98 when I didn't have my older brothers around to turn the radio station and I found the Cubs (we didn't have WGN).
