Scott Simon

My Cubs

A Love Story

€ 24.95


`NPR`s Scott Simon`s personal, heartfelt reflections on his beloved Chicago Cubs, replete with club lore, memorable anecdotes, frenetic fandom and wise and adoring intimacy that have made the world champion Cubbies baseball`s most tortured--and now triumphant--franchise. No metaphor is necessary; the Chicago Cubs have been the living example of disappointment and failure for more than a century--until now. The Cubs` 2016 World Series win marked the end of a 108-year drought in the team`s history, and Game 7 will forever be remembered as one of the most thrilling, monumental moments in sports history. For Scott Simon, host of NPR`s Weekend Edition Saturday and a lifelong Cubs fan, it was a moment he never thought he`d live to see. MY CUBS chronicles Simon`s adolescence in Chicago as a die-hard fan to tell the story of the relationship between the team and the neighborhood and city, and how the condition of Cubness has both charmed and haunted the lives of so many fans. From theories and curses to jinxesand myths, Simon chronicles how a team of `loveable losers` inspired such fervor and dedication from their fans, and how their 2016 win transcended sports to become an underdog narrative for the whole nation`-
