The first episode of uncontrollable sobbing I ever experienced was on October 7th, 1984. It began with frustration as my then six-year-old eyes witnessed a routine ground ball off the bat of Tim Flannery skip through the legs of Cubs first baseman, Leon Durham. Shortly thereafter, my frustration became a hysterical tantrum of tears as I watched the likes of Goose Gossage, Steve Garvey, and the rest of the San Diego Padres celebrate their berth in the 1984 World Series.

Over the following twenty-five years, my interest in the Chicago Cubs has grown into a full-on obsession for all Chicago teams and their respective sports.

    Hey, would you be able to send your e mail to klangan@omnipossible.com? I want to get the B/R community leaders on a mailing list for a press release on behalf of Sports Media 101.

    Hey George,

    This will probably be my last article on the Cubs until they hire a general manager, because the response for Cub articles on BR stinks. Just wondering what your thoughts are on Mike Quade and his delusional desire to win when it doesn't matter, and the undying loyalty he has to the veterans who failed him. Check it out and let me know what you think when you have a chance. Thanks.
