One championship missing from my mantle.

Posted on: June 10, 2010 11:23 am
In my lifetime I have seen almost all my teams win a championship. The Bears did it in 86. Notre Dame did it in 88. The Bulls did it 6 times between 90-98. The Blackhawks did it last night. Now the only one eluding me is a Cubs championship. The one might be the hardest and most bitter sweet. I admit that the Bulls championships spoiled me. I expected to win everytime I heard Ray Clay announce from North Carolina in the starting lineup. The Bears were just flat out dominant in the 85 season so that one was expected too. Notre Dame was a juggernaut and had to win that title. Especially after being disrespected by the convicts at the U. This past Blackhawks season had many highs and lows but in the end they were the best team on the ice. Hats off to Philly for never giving up. The one championship missing from my mantle is a Cubs championship. This championship would be insane. I've had near misses in 84, 88, 98, 2003 (still hurts), 2007, 2008. Everytime the Cubs make the playoffs I get hopefull only to be crushed. This year probably won't be the year but I will wait for next year. Like the Flyers I will never give up. I need that trophy on my mantle.

One championship missing from my mantle.

It would be epic. I think the Illini are in pretty good shape. McCamey is coming back and is poised for a big year. Plus Weber finally got some public league commits. I think the Illini are ready for big things. Maybe not this year but 2011-2012 will be huge for Illinois Basketball. Thanks for showing some Cub love. Hopefully this weekend's series will be good.

Good luck with that my friend. I am a Sox fan, but truly, for all my friends and family members who have loved the Cubs for so long, I hope they win the Series one day soon. We need the Illini to get one in hoops too.
