I don’t enjoy the Dodgers’ games against the Cubs. I wish they were in opposite leagues.
I have many friends and family members who love the Cubs. It gives me no pleasure to see their beloved team lose (and I assume my friends/family don’t enjoy seeing my team lose, either).
At the same time, I obviously want my team to win as many games as possible. And Cub fans want their team to win.
So therein lies my dilemma when the Dodgers play the Cubs. Someone has to lose.
Thank goodness the teams play only six or seven games each year. When I was a kid, they played 12 games per season. That was really rough.
So the Dodgers won Thursday’s series opener 2-1 at Wrigley Field. I won’t elaborate any further because a) I didn’t watch the game and b) I know Cubs fans are hurting from the loss.
May the teams split the four-game series.
