Cub fans


It's almost time for pitchers and catchers to show up for spring training. Ryne Sandburg is managing the Peoria team. There are tornadoes in Chicago in January, which could herald either the World Series or a giant blizzard. I was driving through spectacular lightening shows last night to do a reading at Women and Children First, when I saw the cars backed up half a mile at the Belmont exit to Lake Shore Drive, the exit to Wrigley Field, and I thought, these truly are Die-Hard Cub fans, braving tornadoes in January to see their team.

Sarah, I fear the blizzard more likely than the World Series (for either Chicago team), but I can still hope :o) 'cause that springs eternal, especially on Addison.
By the way, the new book ? A great read.
