It’s been a frustrating season to be a Cubs fan. Isn’t it always?
The way that I cope with these frustrations is to write about them, and send them in to ThroughTheFenceBaseball. I greatly enjoy having an outlet for these frustrations, and I fully understand that the snarky, cynical tone of my writings may not come across as a true fan’s prose should. But I am a Cubs fan first, last, and always, and a lifetime full of disappointments hasn’t changed that one little bit.
I typically cross-post about my writings for TTFB here, since shunting the main part of my baseball thoughts–at least during the baseball season–serves two purposes: it provides content for the baseball-interested audience that ThroughTheFence caters to, while also keeping this blog from becoming too heavy with baseball matters.
Some people probably write about nothing other than baseball. And that’s fine, because writing is a personal thing and I’ll always respect anyone who does it. But I could never allow baseball–or anything else, for that matter–to become the sole focus of what I put in this space. Life is varied, and so are the things that I write about.
With all that in mind, I have recently written a piece about the Cubs’ travails this season, and another one about their upcoming series with the White Sox. Feel free to check them out, if you’re so inclined.
