Hey Chicago What Do You Say? Everyone’s ADHD Today!

Generations of Chicago Cub’s fans have long held the hope for a World Series Championship.  The mantra “Wait until next year” was as much as part of Chicago culture as deep dish pizza and crooked politicians. We were the Lovable Losers, the legendary record holders of underachievement in baseball history.

That all changed at midnight on Nov. 2 as one of the most emotional roller coaster games in baseball history ended with the Cubs victory! The warm midnight air was filled with sirens, fireworks, hoots and hollers of joy and, “Holy Cow”, even a few church bells. People spilled out of their homes and strangers on the street shared hugs and high fives!  It felt like the end of “It’s a Wonderful Life” or old pictures of celebrations of the end of WW II.

In less than 48 hours the city was able to pull together a parade and rally that ended up being the 7th largest celebration in human history and the largest ever in the western hemisphere. On this spring-like November day, an estimated 5 million Cubs fans lined the 7-mile parade route. Skyscrapers were filled with the smiling faces of office workers. The Chicago River sparkled in its brand new, bright Cubbie blue.    Policemen on horseback were smiling, heck I think their horses even had a little grin. And the fans, no longer “Loveable Losers” danced in the street! Rumor has it  the celebration was even visible from space. I’m not sure about that, but I truly believe there were millions more Cubs fans in heaven that were looking down and sharing in the joy.
