I took my daughters to their first Cubs game in Wrigley Field last week. They've been to ball games, but not to the hallowed grounds of my childhood past. They are fourth-generation Cubs fans; little do they know the emotional roller-coaster ride they have just begun.
True Blue Cubbie fans have endured 101 years without seeing their team win the World Series. We've had near misses, but the streak is well preserved. As I watched the kids soak in the experience that draws the fans back year after year, I thought about how being a Cubs fan is similar to searching for a new job. Until the ultimate goal is reached, it can be frustrating. However, there is much to be enjoyed along the way.
