Magic Number is
I could comment on today's game in Wrigley, but I won't. I will say that Dusty Baker has helped the Cubs almost asure a clinch tomorrow for a playoff spot with his Reds today. In Dusty We Trusty! Well... When he's not the Cubs manager at least.
So, tomorrow brings two games that make the number go down that start at the same time. The Cubs take on the Cardinals @ 2:55pm at Wrigley AND the Brewers take on the Reds @ 2:55pm at the Great American Ballpark. Well, the likelihood of a clinch is high. It could happen even when the Cubs game is still going on! I'm working my angles to make sure I make it into Wrigley!
GO CUBS! and remember, cubsmagicnumber.com doesn't stop at 0. When the playoffs start, we reset to 11, which represents the wins needed for winning the World Series. We'll be counting down to 0 once again and end 100 years of patience! GO CUBS!
This magic number is dedicated to all the Cubs fans who have passed but we know would have wanted to be here with us to celebrate the Cubs.
I dedicate this number to Edward Jay Bennett's memory (his brick). He was a huge Cubs fan that arranged World Series tickets for me in 2003, which of course weren't played. He left us way too early just shy of 28. He would have wanted to be no where else than Wrigley when the Cubs clinch and won it all. I miss you big bud and would have loved you meet my son, Edward, "Teddy".
Add to the comments your story of a Cubby fan you've lost.
