GE DIGITAL CAMERAThere’s a place on the road called Twotoone. It’s on the path to Ringville. Most teams pass through Twotoone. It’s at a crossroads on the journey.

Before you get there, you take a look at the map and realize what got you this far. Then you reflect on the successes and correct your mistakes.

After your visit, you move on and continue the journey having left Twotoone feeling a little better than when you got there.

That’s the course the Cubs have been following on this magical 2016 playoff journey with the series sitting at two games to one.

The first trip to Twotoone, didn’t start out all that well. Then came the magical 9th inning where singles and walks and bunts led to a 4-run 9th inning and small ball with the help of a 100MPH flame-thrower vanquished the Giants in an even-numbered year.

The next trip to Twotoonne was a 13 hit, 10 run outburst for a 10-2 Cubs win over the Dodgers, the first of three consecutive wins that catapulted them to their first National League pennant in 71 years.

Tonight, the Cubs come to Twotoone again, their inconsistent sticks a perplexing mystery. But this oasis has been friendly to them, a place to regroup and get over the bumps in the road and move a little closer to Ringville.

A place thus far where Giants are conquered and mythical pitchers defeated.

And it’s Saturday night and it’s been alright for fighting back. Three wins on the Cubs’ Playoff path have come on a Saturday night. So at 7 o’clock it’s gonna be time to rock on another Saturday in the Park.

It’s the World Series and the Cubs are in it. Let’s get this train back on the tracks and have a little fun enjoying the moment.
