Turning Five Today

The 'ol blog turns five today.

1826 days and 1885 posts later it's still alive and kicking.

It's been an interesting five years.

My Cubs collection has grown from about 3,000 cards to almost 12.000.

The Wrigley Wax World Headquarters was built and has been expanded.

The Cubs have burned through three managers and move on to #4 this spring.

The Cubs won 356 games out of 809, a lousy winning percentage of .440.

And I'm not giving up yet, on the blog or on the Cubs.

Look for a new post to show up each day.

Look for the Cubs to turn things around and bring a World Series title to Wrigley Field.

You can count on the new posts to arrive promptly at 9:00 a.m. Eastern time.

I have no time frame on the World Series title....just once in my lifetime, please!
