    Come on people, get with me here. As the title states, anything against the Chicago Cubs is no longer debatable. I know I might have sounded like a crazy man earlier in the season, but a broken clock is at least right twice a day. Or in my case, a broken record. :)

    The regular season is about to come to a close, and soon we will see what others thought impossible. Did you know that the Cubs were the number one team for almost every week of 2016? I'm sad to say that my Rangers weren't. According to this article, the writer boast:

    "This is easily the best Cubs team since 1945, the last Cubs' pennant winner, and arguably the best since 1908."

    That sentence packs a lot of heat. They are literally the best Cubs team in 71 years. It's no surprise when you think about it. Their management and ownership is actually concerned with talent and winning, for once in a century. They have the youngest team with the freshest talent. Their offense and defense are both solid brick walls. This post season is going to be very exciting for the Cubs, mark my words. As well as many seasons to come. They will become a household name once again.

    If they don't make it to the world series, would you consider this season a bust?

    No sir, I wouldn't. They've had one hell of a season. Actually it's their best season in over 70 years. If anything, it would build anticipation for next season.

    Plenty of people are pretty nervous about the Cubs still, even with the awesome regular season...

    I think most feel this way. Scared of the curse and all that. I don't see it though. I think they make it the World Series. Will they win? Perhaps. Maybe not though. Won't change the fact, like you said, they are young, very talented, and have all the makings of a team that will contend for the next several years. For what it's worth, I hope they do win it all as my Rangers just lost the first 2 games to the Jays. Doesn't look good for them in the first round.

    They are dominating the Giants right now. 2-0. And I really don't see the Nationals or the Dodgers being able to handle them in the NLCS. World Series, here come the Cubs. Bout time. :) Can't wait to see if they can win it all. I was a little skeptical about a month ago. But now I'm all in.

    As a die hard Cubs fan I refuse to get too excited, but their comeback win against the Giants in game 4 was out of this world. Down by three in the 9th and scoring four runs for the win?! That was insane.

    On to the NLCS.

    Well, they just whooped up on the Dodgers last Saturday 5-0, clenching their first pennant in 71 years. It's them versus the Cleveland Indians. It's looking a hell-a-lot better if you ask me. Wink

    It's hard to put into words how exciting this is for Cubs fans. My dad was born ten years after the Cubs last World Series appearance. My long since deceased great grandpa was two years old the last time the Cubs won the World Series in 1908.

    This is quite the exciting time, but any real Cubs fan won't get too excited until the final pitch is thrown and we have won.

    I don't blame you one bit. I got over cocky when the Rangers were just two plays away from winning it against the Cardinals. My best friend can attest to the fact that I broke a perfectly good space heater as the Cardinals did their victory pile-up on the mound. I think I'm more excited for the Cubs than I have been for any other team. Perhaps it's underdog fever, but this year's Cubs are more deserving than any other team. They've played their hearts out this year.
