August Happiness Challenge -- Day 8

Today's happiness: Cubbie symmetry. Wednesday was August 8.

August 8, 1988 is a big deal in Wrigley Field history. It was the end of one era and the beginning of another as the Chicago Cubs became the last MLB club to have lights in their home ballpark.

My current favorite Cub -- and definitely one of my most loved EVER! -- Anthony Rizzo was born on August 8, 1989. Being the fabulous human he is, he is commemorating his 29th birthday with a fundraiser at a local grocery store chain. We're invited to donate a $1 to his pediatric cancer foundation at checkout. (Of course I did! He's Rizz!)

August 8 and August 8, just one year apart. Clearly Anthony Rizzo was born to be a Cub!


Each day in August you are to post about something that makes *you* happy. Pretty simple. And, it doesn't even have to be every day if you don't want it to be. It's a great way to remind ourselves that there are positive things going on in our lives, our communities, and the world.

Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
