Switching Gears....


I got so many nice emails today and this weekend with people asking how Jack is handing the ugly implosion of the Cubs. I also got a few "ha ha" type emails...so not nice!! Shame on you...you big meanie White Sox fans!


Anyway, back to the nice emails. You guys are awesome to think of Jack. Thanks for asking!!

I was out of town this weekend, but Spencer said that Jack did pretty well. Of course the game on Saturday night didn't even start until past Jack's bedtime so, he did not see any of the game. He did run in and wake Spencer up early Sunday morning to see if the Cubs won. Spencer said it was very sad to report to Jack that they lost. Jack really thought they were going to pull it out and win Saturday night (no laughing Johnny!). He was suprised that it was over and really disappointed. There were tears on Sunday morning, but #1 Daddy spent time talking to him about "how hard it is to win the World Series"..."and maybe next year"....and some blah, blah, blah about how the Phillies used to choke a lot too. Anyway, he survived and that although the Cubs are still his favorite team, he has decided to root for the White Sox now that the Cubs are out of it. Personally, I don't think that is the best decision and believe that there will be some more Jack tears flowing again pretty soon. I'm rooting for the Phillies.

Spencer did say that Jack watched the Bears game and was really in to it and was enthusiastically cheering on the Bears. I'm glad that at least the Bears won and helped make Jack feel a little better.

Brian reminds me every chance he can that the White Sox are still in it. He even has Cole wearing Sox attire. It's torture!

Sounds like my house to a tee. I taught my trio the most important Cubs word of all on Friday:
Choke.
Although my dh REALLY thought they were going to pull it off!
I knew the truth though...

Go Bears! I wish I could send some flair to Jack.

Poor Jack! I feel bad for him, but not for the Cubs. ;) All right, you've moved back on the good side in my book (like you care ;)). Go Bears!
