The Chicago Cubs are trying to win their first World Series championship in 108 years, so they need all the good luck they can get. Maybe having a three-time Stanley Cup-winning captain on their side will help a bit.
Jonathan Toews knows a little something about coming through in the playoffs, right? Presumably he was attending the game in order to bless Wrigley Field like a championship-whispering shaman. Or maybe he just wanted to catch a game and a couple brews before he spends the next eight months on the grind.
Either way, the only thing missing was the Stanley Cup.
The Cubs beat the San Francisco Giants, 1-0, on Friday night thanks to a solo bomb from Javier Baez in the eighth inning, so Toews’ presence CLEARLY helped. If there wasn’t a dang hockey season around the corner, I might suggest he continue attending games as a good luck charm.
Oh well, that job might have to go to Bill Murray instead.
