The Cubs World Series watch, which has been active for the last 100 years, has been officially switched on for 2008. The Cubs are now on top of the NL Central (and it's April) thanks to their best start since 1975 with a record of 14-6. They have 13 wins in 16 games.
Lest anyone thinks I am jinxing my beloved team, Cubby Ronny Cedeno has already initiated that by actually saying, outloud, yesterday, that the Cubs are thinking about the World Series. Young and impudent. That's what we need. Stare into the abyss and laugh. Ignorance of Cubs tragedies past is bliss.
