Talking Cubs Baseball Since 2003



April 2005



Flying High

I was excited to see the Cubs win yesterday, not only because the offense was smokin’, not only because it ties them for the lead in the NL Central, but also because I was able to unveil my brand spanking new Cubs “W” flag and fly it outside my house:

I plan to fly it after every Cubs win. It’ll probably be over the heads of most Nebraska residents, but I’m sure a couple of people will drive by and get a kick out of it. No “L” flag, of course. Heck, I don’t even think anyone sells those anyway.

Here’s my question to you Chicago residents who might know better — I know they fly it at Wrigley right after they win, but when do they take it down? In the morning after the game? Right before the next game? Or do they even take it down if they keep on winning?
