The Dodgers erased a 29-year 'drought'. They are now going to appear in the #WorldSeries. With the win, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts is the first person of Asian descent, fourth black person to make it to the World Series. Roberts was formerly a player in Major League Baseball where he played on the Dodgers, Cleveland Indians, San Diego Padres, San Francisco Giants and the historic 2004 Boston Red Sox team that broke the #CurseOfTheBambino curse.
Oh what to say about this season. For once, I'm not heartbroken that we were eliminated.. I'm just heartbroken the season is over. I'm a 4th generation born into it Cubs fan. My grandmother's first gifts to me were Cubs themed. A year ago, I got to witness a dream come true that my grandmother never did. A World Series win. Not long after a couple things happened that caused my life to crumble a bit. But I had the celebrations and joy of the championship to get me through. When baseball season rolled around this year, I for the first time bought MLBTV so that I could watch every game. Day in and day out, I watched every game (I think in total I missed less than 20). While being on the job market, struggling with health, and being on my own, every single game gave me something to look forward to everyday. I survived this year because of my Cubs. And there was nothing like the celebrations this season. Or finally stepping into Wrigley Field for the first time right before my birthday. Or getting to watch and meet the Iowa Cubs in Nashville on the day of the eclipse. It was a season full of memories. And I'll be counting down the days until next season begins. Thank you for everything @Cubs! And hey, someday we'll go all the way... again!
