It's a Long Way to the Top

My Cubs are great guys. By and large* they're handsome and clean cut and joyous. During the off season, we saw story after story about the charity appearances they made, how they brought the trophy to children's hospitals.

Tonight, on Opening Night at Wrigley Field, they showed another side. It was the first time they'd appeared on their home turf since winning it all in Cleveland and they strutted onto the field. They swaggered. Anthony Rizzo hoisted the Commissioner's Trophy over his head and his teammates followed him onto the field to AC/DC's "It's a Long Way to the Top."

My darlings were badass tonight.


 Welcome home! It was a long way to the top, but you rocked it.

*I'm excepting Lackey and Arrieta because they are, respectively, hot and cool and are always quite intimidating.
