More specifically I became a Cubs fan around mid-October. (Don&rsquo;t get me wrong, my first allegiance is to the Atlanta Braves). But the Cubs story last year captured my attention as I found myself pulling for them to break the long drought (108 years) since they had last won a World Series. I watched the final out of the NLCS which clinched the pennant for the Cubs and sent them to the World Series. As the Cubs were celebrating on the field, the camera panned the audience and I saw Cubs fans both young and old with tears streaming down their faces. I texted a good friend of mine who is an avid Cubs fan and asked him how he was feeling at that moment.
