It would never happen to me.

I'm too damn cheap to buy tickets that close.

I remember that play like it was yesterday. I literally fell out of bed when that play happened. You could practically see the skies darken and the storm about to hit. Ironically enough, I had tickets for the next and final game because of all that. Kind of a lose win scenario I guess. Even though it ended up being a lose lose since we blew that final game too.

Being in Chicago at the time, to say it was a big deal was an understatement. I remember yelling at the TV when it happened.

I also remember at the end of game 7, how Cubs fans were crying, especially the older ones. I think they realized deep inside that they would never see the Cubs win a World Series in this lifetime.

Wow that's really sad ._.

I think they would've really appreciated it. I mean, the longer you go without something, the more special it becomes.

That season was one of the most fun Cubs seasons in years, and maybe decades. A terrific team with lots of power pitching, plenty of home run power, and a deep playoff run! Don't get the Cubs fans wrong, there was tons of fun that year! I was glued to nearly every game!

That said, taking a 3-2 lead into Wrigley and losing the series in 7, especially with the shenanigans in game 6, and then the breakdown of the pitching in 7 was a bitter pill to swallow. The Cubs were just not a playoff team, but had a team built to realistically win the series and then, well, honestly they choked IMO.

With so little success over the years, it was just a giant let down.
