About Crazy Cubs Fan

I am originally from the suburbs of Hoffman Estates and Schaumburg. I moved to Southern California, then lived in Omaha Nebraska for 10 years. I just moved back to the Chicagoland area back in June 2016. Have been a Cubs fan all my life and even have it tattooed on my upper left arm to show my devotion to this wonderful team. I just hope as the old saying goes that the Cubs win it just once in my lifetime.

What A Ride So Far

So far it has been a very entertaining 2015 baseball season for the Chicago Cubs.  When Tom Ricketts was able to hire Theo Epstein, I told a lot of people that by 2015 the Cubs would be starting to contend and by 2020 the Cubs would win at least 1 Continue reading What A Ride So Far

Down On The Farm

It’s been a while since I have had any idea of what I would like to talk/rant about. I have been leaving it up to the rest of World Series Dreaming to handle it all with their great insights and knowledge. From Anno to Rice to the rest of the gang Continue reading Down On The Farm

One thing I love to do is provide my crazy perspective on how Continue reading What I Am Seeing So Far In 2013
