As a young girl, I used to get so frustrated because my parents always had to watch the Cubs. I couldn't watch my cartoons because the Cubs were on. When we went to Grandma's we had to watch the Cubs. It got to where I just had to accept it and either resent it or like it. So, in 1984, my parents took me and my brother to my first Cubs game. I was 11 years old. To this day, I remember walking up the steps from the concourse and seeing the green. The ivy. The grass. The smell of the fresh summer baseball air. I got chills. I was officially hooked. That game will forever shine in my heart. Keith Moreland hit a grand slam... the roar of the crowd made the hair on my neck stand up. To this day, I still feel that overwhelming excitement when I go to the ballpark. I have passed the feeling down to my son, who had to give up his cartoons for those few hours every day during the spring and summer. However, I didn't force him to just watch it, I explained it all as it went along. I helped him to understand the game, the history, and what it means to be a Cubs fan. There is nothing more special than the days I take my son to Wrigley where we can both share our passion for the game.

If I had a kid, my one goal in life would be to raise them a Cub's fan, and if they turn on me, I'll disown them.

Cubs....this could take awhile, you know how the media claims or claimed the Sosa/Big Mac homerun chase brought the fans back...in my case they were right, i used to watch baseball all the time as a kid with my gramps, we'd go to minor league games (Midland Angels at the time). As the years passed by i grew up and out of baseball, then in 98 the homerun chase renewed my interest....I was pulling for Big Mac at the time, go figure. The next spring i found myself watching baseball again and it started out with the Cards(briefly) but for some reason i started watching the Cubs instead, maybe cause of the coverage. I'm not really sure, the Cubs were horrible in 99 but i watched anyway...Mark Grace quickly became my fave player (and still is)Sosa was at the time "a gladiator" but the Cubs sucked and i still watched, and it continued that way, by 2004 i couldnt take only seeing 80 something games on WGN so i ordered the MLB package and i've gotten it every year since then. I love everything about the CUbs. From the Wrigley Field, to the Ivy, Chip & Steve calling games(best announcers out there, please bring them back), the tradition, the fans, the players. The Cubs sucked but i kept watching...in 2001 i was teased with a decent season but in 02 they sucked again....then we hired Dusty after the Giants lost to the Angels and had a year that i had been waiting to see. It was beautiful, i still have all those postseason games from 03 on vhs. 5 outs from going to the world series...when that bartman **** happened and after game 7...i had never been that heartbroken (the only other time that could compare would be when my gramps passed away. It pisses me off when people question my loyalty to the Cubs...since 04 i've seen practically every game and during the season i scour the deepest darkest corners of the internet keeping up with cubs news that i already know about from watching the mlb package and in the offseason i delve even deeper looking for news....i'm an addict to everything Cubs and will remain that way till i die...As long as Jim Hendry keeps up the good work maybe 2007 will be the year they win, but regardless win or lose the Cubs are my team.

I grew up in Wisconsin and was a Cubbie fan at birth. My grandfather would babysit me and he always had the game on WGN. Went to my first game at Wrigley in '89 against the Expos. Ryno hit a 2 run shot and it was the only runs of the game. Even got to see Mitch Williams pitch that day.

My first little league team was The Cubs and I proudly sported #8 and played right field.

Does anyone remember those old ads on WGN with Andre Dawson talking about when he hits one over the fence, he hits it over a such and such company chainlink fence? I loved that ad.

I grew up in Wyoming so I never had a local team to root for. I started off a Royals fan at age 6 because I loved George Brett. When we moved across town, I befriended a kid that was from Chicago. We started watching Cubs games together. I loved watching Sandberg, and Dunston (what a arm), the Hawk, Gracie, and all off em. Of course this was in the 84. Since then I live breath and bleed Cubbie Blue. I am now raising my 2 young daughters to be Cubbie fans. It is great to hear a 4 year old shout "Go Cubbies"!

I used to go to my grandparents house on the weekends to spend the night. My grandpa would always be watching a Cubs game no matter what. He didn't really have a choice because he had muscular dystrophy and was confined to his chair all day. I would watch with him in anticipation of a Cubs win. When something went wrong he would curse every word you could think of. I guess that's where I got that from. I asked my parents to get the Cubs channels so I could watch them then my intrest in them took off from there. I watch them because I love the Cubs and it reminds me of my grandpa. I just wish I could have gone to Wrigley field with him once.

My kids already know that, and they are only 8 and 4!
