Friday was Cubs Opening Day. My favorite day of the year.
About an hour before first pitch I looked outside to see the return of snow. For a minute I wondered if Hell had frozen over and the Cubs would win the World Series this year.
Shortly after that thought the snow stopped and the Cubs lost. Just Mother Nature playing an April Fool’s joke on all of us.
Of course, you could say the Cubs have been an April Fool’s joke for over 100 year now.
