Do: Enjoy the ride.
The Cubs are playing historic-levels of ball right now, with all facets of the game firing on all cylinders. It can be very easy to want to get nostalgic about how this team stacks up to Cubs teams of the past, but...
Don’t: Forget to stay in the moment.
While the ineptitude of the Cubs organization is long and consistent, I truly believe that right now is currently the best time to be a fan of the North Side ever. Don’t believe me? Ask the diehards if the following names ring a bell: Rod Beck. Antonio Alfonseca. Todd Hollandsworth. LaTroy Hawkins. Milton Bradley. They’re crying, aren’t they? HOPE YOU’RE HAPPY, YOU JERK.
For the bandwagoners out there, yes, this year is different. No, the whole Marty McFly thing didn't work out. But outside of the the usual “loveable loser gets good” narrative, this team is the best roster the Cubs have had in decades, and all signs point to the NL pennant win at absolute worst-case scenario and the end of the longest drought in MLB postseason history as the best-case. The time is now. That sound you just heard was every Cubs fan reading this knocking on wood all at once.
