I'm a baseball guy to the core. My dad took me to my first Cubs game in 1972; bled Cubbie blue ever since. I make it a point to attend at least 1 Cubs game each year. It gets harder and harder to go when you have to compete for tickets with people who 'Don't know who any of the players are because they took their names off the home jerseys.' I've been with the Cubs thru thick and mostly thin. But hey, it sure beats the hell out of watching the 'LUCKIEST' team in MLB from the other side of town. I mean, anyone could win the World Seires when you score 10 runs a game. I almost gave up on the Cubbies when they gave up on Maddux in 1992. It took a while to finally come around, and so here I am today.
I am also a Bulls fan. I remember seeing them at the old Chicago Stadium, being 1 of about 3000 people in the seats. This was back when they had such stalwarts as Quentin Dailey, Reggie Theus and Dave Corzine This was well before they drafted a young guard named Jordan.
My most memorable game that I was in attendance for: 2003 National League Divisional Series; Cubs and Braves; Prior vs. Maddux. I was torn. My favorite player, of all time, is Greg Maddux. But I wanted the Cubs to win. It was an awesome time. I was supposed to be the changing of the guard: The youngsters (Wood, Prior, Zambrano) vs. The best pitching staff of all time (Maddux, Glavine and Smoltz). It was for that very short time. As you can see, the old veterans are still around, and 2 of the youngsters have dead arms. Knowing what could have and should have been is what brings a tear to my eye (sniff).
I'm a golf nut too; but don't have the time, or money to play as much as I would like to.
Favorite player: Greg Maddux - best pitcher of this era. I think this was mentioned before.
Favorite ballpark: Believe it or not - Fenway. Wrigley just looks too old.
NASCAR or NHRA? NHRA all day long. The rednecks in NW Indeeyahna definitely won't agree.
Another Cubs moment: Listening to the 1983 playoffs while in Algebra. 13-0 behind Rick Sutcliffe.
Go Cubs! Go Bears! Go Bulls! Go Hawks!
