Baseball is not exactly my thing, but boy am I ever a Cubs fan now. Go, Cubs! Go, Ernie Banks! Go, Brent Sopel!* In the week we celebrate those certain unalienable rights our founders held to be self-evident, this from Sports Illustrated is the kind of story that makes you proud. Pass it on.

DID YOU WATCH IT?
Perhaps you weren’t listening. You simply have to watch this. If you like it, pass it on to Reagan fans, Obama fans, and Obama foes.
