Oh, I’m in.
I’m all in.
Ready to go. Ready for the real games to begin. Ready to be in Atlanta when the Cubs take on the Braves on Opening Day.
Ready to believe once more.
Am I setting myself up for failure? Well, not failure so much as frsutration. I won’t necessarily be losing anything, well, other than sleep after the bullpen blows another…
But wait. You stop right there, Negativity. There shall be no room for you when it’s only March 4.
Right now there is only hope.
Yes, the Chicago Cubs played for the first time on Thursday since lazily playing out the string last October. And they looked good.
So good that I feel like there’s a chance it could be a big season.
I know, I know. I say that every year.
But that’s what’s great about the spring.
I get to believe for a few months.
And that’s something to hold on to.
Lose that, and what’s left?
