I SAID HOLY COW
Harry Carey was known worldwide for yelling “Holy Cow!” whenever the Cubs did something amazing. That’s why the line is so precious and memorable, the Cubs rarely did anything amazing.
Get it? I’m making fun of the 80s and 90s Cubs?!?!
For decades, many, many decades, the Cubs were cursed with losing – some say they were actually cursed.
Some thought the Cubs would never be good again and would be the lovable losers for as long as baseball was played.
Every now and again, there was a glimmer of hope. Your Mark Graces, your Ryne Sandbergs but they just couldn’t get an entire team together that could make the playoffs.
Just like anything else in the world – in the darkest moments is when we find the glimpse of hope we need to turn things around and move into the light.
