Chicago Cubs

Here’s a moment to enjoy something positive, to reflect on your good fortunes, and feel good about the powerful impact of sports.

Tyler Trent is a Chicago Cubs fan, and also happens to be a Purdue football super fan and team captain who is battling cancer. He is a beast who has been through a lot, and keeps on going:
