Yes I grew up and still live and farm. I have many poor stories I could tell. One. Went to country school first 3years, about 2 miles away. Walked every day, no matter what the weather. On real cold days stooped at neighbors house on the way to warm up. Skeeter.
What a great story. I too became a Cub fan when I married my bride. I had been a Indians fan because of an article written in a farm magazine when as a small kid about Bob Feller, the farm boy pitcher from Iowa I think. But after marrying soon learned to love the lovable losers. We have gone to other ball parks but none hold the charm of the Wrigley! Skeeter
That was the year I married my husband. One of the requirements of our marriage was that I attend a game with him at Wrigley field, so I dutifully went with him. This involved leaving my home in Michigan early in the morning, driving to Indiana, getting on a train, followed by a subway. Of course, I was with my beloved, so it was an awesome day, and lots of fun. I decided when we were engaged, that since he loved the Cubs so much, I would get try to get interested.That way I wouldn't be resentful years later when he was watching games . At our wedding reception we walked in to the song "Go Cubs Go!" of course!
Well, since that time I REALLY got hooked, and I love the Cubs almost as much as he does now. We talk baseball alot, both in season and off season. We have since been blessed with two more Cub fans of our very own, though our four year old asserted this past winter that she was a Brewers fan (thanks to a mischevious Grandpa ). We'll convert her back though, I'm hoping!
Now, I highly recommend marrying a lifelong Cub fan. Chances are, if they are that loyal to a team, they will be loyal to you too!
(The other side of this story, is that my suburb-raised husband was required to milk a cow on my dad's dairy farm before he could marry me-HA!)
Meanwhile, I am here on Sparkpeople because I've got lots of weight to lose. I was THRILLED to see a Cubs message board here. Looking forward to seeing what is in store for the Cubs in 2013.
