The Win Flag

Chicago Cubs Blog

Hangin’ up the flag

leave a comment »

It’s safe to assume that most Cub fans know the meaning behind the old ‘W’ flag. But, for those who don’t let me be the first to explain.

After every home game at Wrigley Field the Cubs hang up a flag, either a ‘W’ for a win, or an ‘L’ for a loss. It was meant for people coming home from work on the El to know the outcome of the Cubs game. The Cubs hang it high on the Wrigley Field classic scoreboard.

Hence my blogs name: The Win Flag.

My mind is constantly thinking Chicago Cubs baseball; it feels somewhat of a very painful, long lasting, never ending, why wasn’t I born a Cardinal or White Sox fan disease.

I don’t think I need to point out any credentials for my history as a Cubs fan. I’ll keep it short and sweet; this blog isn’t about me, but about the Cubs.

I was born in 1983 on the NW side of Chicago, but I feel like an old 26 year old. My family has held season tickets since the 2001 season, so I attend many games as possible, but often difficult due to work, but I watch every Cubs game, this includes attending one or two away games every year. I am also, let me stress this as much as possible, the most emotional Cubs fan I know. Emotional not like I cry after a loss, but get really angry and question Cubs management or coaching decisions any chance I get. There needs to be accountability in the organization, and in my life as a Cubs fan I have yet to see accountability.

I’ll save a rant like this for tomorrow.

A ‘W’ for myself for starting this Cubs blog.

Questions, comments, or advice is appreciated, and I look forward to being a part of the blog community.
