Baseball is my favorite sport, and it’s always been.
I have two great kids, a boy and girl who both love baseball.
I think the Cubs are the best team in baseball.
The Cubs were the surprise team of the NLDS, as they won the World Series, defeating the St. Louis Cardinals.
The Cardinals, who are the defending champs, will go into the postseason as the defending National League champs.
But as soon as the Cubs won the National League Championship Series, it felt like a momentous victory.
I know I was on a mission to get my daughter, Jaxon, to the Cubs.
She loves baseball.
It was a huge win.
The day after the Cubs win, I had my youngest son, Jesse, in the car to visit his grandmother and Aunt Jo.
I wanted to celebrate.
We had a beautiful day.
We drove over to the park, which is called Wrigley Field.
I had a lot of friends and family there.
We were just going to celebrate, but we didn’t have to.
We just had to watch the Cubs game.
Jesse’s grandma, I think she was 90 years old, said, “Jaxon will be home soon.
He’s always here.”
I was really happy to see her smile, because it meant everything to her.
I was going to leave her in the house.
She was going into the hospital.
I’m like, “We can’t leave her here.”
We went into the house, and she had a bag on her shoulder, a bunch of clothes and my son, Jaelin, who is 6 years old.
I said, my goodness, we don’t have any clothes for him.
It wasn’t that we didn, but it was a little scary.
The doctors told us that it was going in the wrong direction.
They had him take a few more days to get used to it.
We got him to the hospital, and I said to him, “Don’t let anybody tell you, it’s a big job.”
I wanted him to go into a hospital and have a surgery.
We’re like, oh, he’s gonna be okay, he’ll be okay.
They put him on a ventilator.
He was just a little scared and crying.
He went into a room and was in the ICU.
He had to be in there for a while, but he was OK.
I was in shock.
He was in an oxygen tank.
I started crying.
I told him, he has a very, very good chance of being alive.
I just want you to know that you are doing this for the right reasons.
He knew it was his time.
When you have a son, you always think about him, especially when he’s so young.
We didn’t want to leave him there.
The Cubs are in a playoff spot, but that’s really the best thing.
They are one of the favorites, but if you lose to the Cardinals, they are a one-loss team.
I have a little kid, and he always wants to play, so he was very excited.
I thought he was going crazy, but now he’s really excited.
It’s been really nice.
We had a wonderful time.
We’re going to watch that game again this weekend, because I’m really excited for him to be around baseball again.
