A Cubbie blue baby boom

This week will mark nine months since the Cubs captured their first World Series title in 108 years. And recent births have nearly doubled at Illinois Masonic Medical Center. Coincidence?

Not according to this Bravo article, shared with me by Kwizgiver.

Wrigleyville has long been known moments of impetuous passion. Even President Obama joked about it when he celebrated the Cubs at the White House. “Tom met his wife, Cece, in the bleachers of Wrigley about 30 years ago,” Obama said of Tom Ricketts, “which is about 30 years longer than most relationships that begin there last.”

It's nice to see that the 2016 miracle Cubs team also inspired romance of a more lasting and committed nature. I predict that, in high schools all over Chicagoland, graduating seniors of the Class of 2035 will have names like Wrigley, Addison, Clark and Ivy.
