On Opening Day 2012

Baseball.

For the Chicago Cubs, opening day is today. In the hallowed halls of Wrigley Field, the Cubs of Chicago and the Nationals of Washington will meet, Ryan Dempster on the mound for the Cubs, the flamethrower Stephen Strasburg on the mound for the Nationals.

I have been a Cubs fan for much of my life. The Cubs have taught me the enduring power of hope.

And Opening Day is the most hopeful day of all. It’s like Christmas, only with baseball.

Opening Day is the day when fate has yet to be written, when anything is possible, when your beloved team really can “go all the way.”

In that spirit, Eddie Vedder’s paeon to the Cubs, “All The Way” —

Go Cubs Go. :cubs:
