Cubs Fever? We’ve got you covered!

Young Cubs fan with flag
I'm going to keep this post short and sweet today -- the Cubs are playing in the playoffs, and Chicagoland is abuzz with excitement (well, except for my brother-in-law who grew up as a Mets fan and when he transplanted to Chicago, couldn't be a Cubs fan so he picked the Sox!)  

There's no shortage of Cubs-related goodies online, from all of the sports analysis, to a "What The World Was Like The Last Time The Cubs Won The World Series" Buzzfeed listicle, to WGN's "What kind of Cubs fan are you?" quiz. 

We have our fair share of Cubbies goodness here as well, so check it out!

Wrigley Field: An Oral and Narrative History of the Home of the Chicago Cubs

Wrigley Field: An Oral and Narrative History of the Home of the Chicago Cubs

by Ira Berkow

“..Brilliantly and beautifully documents the stadium's entire career through a decade by decade account, a priceless collection of historical photographs and memorabilia, and vivid first person reminiscences of the people to whom this great place has meant so much. Notable fans interviewed for this book include Barack Obama, Scott Turow, Joe Mantegna, Sara Paretsky, Jim Bouton, and George F. Will, among others. Rounded out by a foreword by former player Kerry Wood and an afterword by associate justice John Paul Stevens, this is a book that no Cubs fan and no baseball fan will be able to resist."
