Hey good to hear from you Spriggs. I remember my Grandpa always saying on his birthday "another step closer to the grave". Which is true we're all getting a little closer to death. My dad would always say "I won't be around forever" and he was right. We were supposed to watch Game 3 of the 2007 playoffs together like we watched games one and two. Something happened with our schedules conflicting and we didn't get to watch that game. My dad died the next April 3 on the day that Dempster got the first win of the season for the Cubs. Dempster is the one who blew the save in the only Cubs game my dad and I watched at Wrigley.
The point is, it anit about if the Cubs win or lose it's that you get to spend that precious time with someone you love doing something you enjoy. Take a moment to breathe in this busy time for you Spriggs and know life is good.
