A Series to Remember

by Greg Asimakoupoulos

Posted: October 29, 2016

Cubs fans are living their dream…

It's a weekend to remember
at historic Wrigley Field.
It's a three-game match-up Cubs fans dreamed would be.
Not since troop ships headed homeward
at the end of World War 2
have the Cubbies claimed their place in history.

It's a season to remember
for the losers we have loved.
Holy Cow! They won the most of all this year.
Rizzo, Russell, Baez, Bryant
led their team all summer long
and have given baseball fans much cause to cheer.

It's a series to remember
'tween the Indians and Cubs.
Both Lebron and Michael's cities crave this crown.
How I wish that Banks and Santo
could have lived to see these games
in a slugfest on the north side of Chi-town.
