Rejoice! Rejoice! The Cubs are going to the playoffs!

What an incredible ride. I didn't think it possible, but the Cubs have gone from worst in the league one year to the top of the division the next, an improvement of nearly 20 wins.

In a way, this team has acted a lot like me (not in the schizophrenic way, though; let me assure you that I am mentally healthy). I'm not one to go way above and beyond what's necessary. If I need to mow the lawn, I'll go out and do it -- but I don't often do the edging and weed-whacking, making the yard look absolutely perfect, because it doesn't need to be done very often and doing it every week would be, in my mind, a waste of my time and energy.

Likewise, the Cubs got the job done -- by being just barely better than Milwaukee -- and though 90 or more wins sure would have looked nicer, the core objective is still completed: the Cubs are in the playoffs.

And now that they're in, that's all that really matters.

Go Cubs!
