I love the Cubs. I think I love my Cubs too much.
And today is a perfect example:
For a little background: This year I'm really into the Cubs. I read about 7 different blogs per day about the Cubs. I spend lots of time on this website arguing about the Cubs. I have much more time invested in the Cubs than ever before. Well pretty much everyday I take my XM radio to school so I can listen to the game. In most of my classes I can't listen so I just use it to check the score on the screen.
So the game starts during English. I find myself listening to the game with my head turned trying to keep my teacher from seeing while we watch a movie. After English I have lunch. Well me and my friend had decieded that we'd stay on campus and study in the library for our Calculus test. Well while I'm waiting for her the Cubs go up 7-0...I become estatic. I'm happy and when she comes I decied to forgo listening to the game to study. So after lunch I walk to History, still happy as can be even though I'm stressed for the test. I walk in and my teacher has the game on, he's a Cubs fan. Well throughout the period I keep checking the score and as the game gets closer my mood becomes worse. After history the Cubs still have the lead and I go to Calculus. I'm taking the test and I pull out the radio to look at the score. By doing this I'm risking my teacher seeing and ripping up my test for presumed cheating. I didn't care. I see that the game has been tied. I get depressed even though I'm doing well on a hard test I'm still in a bad mood.
After Calculus I have Chemistry. I listen to the game during passing period. By the time class starts the 9th inning had just ended. And since my teacher is very sharp and she would kill me if she found my using electronics in her class i couldn't check the score. Well midway through the period she asks me, "Do you need to leave the room? You're pretty ansey today, usually you're just funny". I say no and then I realize that I'm shaking because I don't know how the game is going.
The Cubs need to succed this year for many reasons, including preserving my sanity.
