RHYMES AND REASONS
Cubs Win! Cubs Win! Cubs Win!
Spiritual lessons from my team's World Series victory

'Twas a World Series win for the ages.
* This poem is dedicated to my dad who died eight years ago today (November 4, 2008). He played catch with me when I was a kid. He faithfully came to my little league games. He took me to my first major league baseball game. A week before he died I lay down next to my dad on his bed as we watched the World Series together on the TV in my folks' bedroom. (Curiously, Joe Maddon's team Tampa Bay Rays lost in five games that year.) How I wish I could share in the joy of the Cubs win with him this year (now that Joe Maddon is Chicago's manager). But like the poem suggests, I will just have to wait for that ultimate family reunion to come. I miss you, Dad.
