A Day To Do Very Little and The Cubs Are Champs


Today I spent time outside enjoying the great weather here in Chicagoland and did very little.

Gymnastics and baseball are my favorite sports and I LOVE THE CUBS. I have been a fan all my life and what a great season the Cubs have had. Last night they clinched the NL Central Championship. Now the waiting begins to see who they play next.
Good luck to all the other winning teams.

Here are some facts about the Cubs.


Owner(s): Tribune Company
Manager: Lou Piniella
General Manager: Jim Hendry
The Chicago Cubs are a professional baseball team based in the North Side of Chicago, Illinois. The Cubs are members and currently champions of the Central Division of Major League Baseball’s National League. The team plays their home games at the historic Wrigley Field, located in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood. The Cubs are one of two Major League clubs in Chicago, the other being the Chicago White Sox of the American League, who play on the city’s south side.
The Cubs are affectionately referred to by the media and fans as "The Cubbies," and also "The Northsiders," in contrast to the White Sox, who play on the city's South Side. The Cubs are one of the only two remaining charter members left in the National League, (Atlanta Braves) and the only team in its original city.
Businessman Samuel Zell recently acquired the Tribune Company, the current owners of the Cubs. The company will sell the team after the 2007 Major League Baseball season.[1] The Cubs are managed by Lou Piniella. The team's president is John McDonough, and their general manager is Jim Hendry.

Have a great Sunday.
