In the Taoist philosophy there’s yin, and there’s yang. The two are theoretically supposed to balance each other out. But for a Cubs fan like me, this baseball season has been especially long on the yin, and it’s only going to get worse until the end of the season. Game 162 can’t get here soon enough for me.
It’s hard to get so emotionally invested in something that disappoints so thoroughly. Perhaps there will be a payoff someday. I’m not sure what else there is to do but hope for it.
