We all have that one fantasy, or something that we would really like to do. I know in my lifetime I want to see the Chicago Cubs actually win the World Series. This being said, this season looks to be the best chance they have, well until they started this series with the L.A. Dodgers. They have dropped their last two games, making it 2-1 and sadly putting them in the position to lose this series, since the next two games are in L.A. Now, let me clarify; I am not a Chicago Cubs fan, nor will I ever jump off my Royals. I am just excited to see history being made, which is what would happen if they did win the World Series. I went as far as promising something crazy if they do win.

I know I am in no position to negotiate with God, nor was that my intention. I just thought it was a good idea at the time. I recently posted to Facebook after the Cubs got shut out for the second straight game. The status said “I will finish my youth pastor studies if the Cubs win, because then we will know that God does exist.” I am being very serious. If the Cubs win, I will study the bible like never before, I will get some kind of certificate (somewhere in the future,) and I will become the thing most want me to become; a youth pastor.

Now, don’t expect me to do this all at once. Clearly I want to get back into studying and going to church and such. But it will eventually happen. I could be Jenkins (Jinx) it, but I thought this would get the Heavens to help the struggling Cubs, also I might as well finish the education I started.

The Chicago Cubs are on their way to get eliminated, and it’s all because of their batting. Their defense is what kept this team alive, thus far. But now without their batting abilities, we could see the cubs out in the next two games. Their hottest hitters (Rizzo, Russell, Heyward, Fowler and Zobrist) have only hit 12 out of their last 109 appearances (Playoffs). If it weren’t for Montero hitting the late grand slam, off the bench in game one, we could be looking at a 0-3 deficit. The Cubs have the pitching, disregarding Arietta’s horrible outing to win this, but something has to come back alive; their bats. They will need to find some hope in their bats and turn them back on. You can’t expect to not hit well and beat the L.A. Dodgers. The Cubs need to get their five big hitters back on track, or they might as well pack up and go home.

We will have to see what the future brings but I think we could still see history being made, this season. It’s not a big deficit, but they have to get back on their game. This is where we will see if the Cubs are the real deal. They have the talent, they just need to find a way to put it together and go after it. Cleveland will be waiting for the winner, lets hope it’s Chicago.

   In the past week, I have discovered something that nearly kills me inside. I was on Facebook, and as I was scrolling through the many posts by friends I don’t really know anymore. Its sad to think that way, but to be honest since I started to work I haven’t been able to breath. Anyways back to topic, as I was looking at a forward photo, most of the time I would run right through them without a single thought, but this photo was more than I could imagine.

            The picture seemed inappropriate at first as I stared I realized that it was all but that. In the picture there was a girl and a male in bed (Let me say they were wrestling, for the younger viewers.) The girl and guy had writing on their bodies. The girls read “He’s my first,” I began to examine the guys back where the numbers numbed my mind. Thirty check marks layered his back.

            This was a shock to me, because I have never thought about “Wrestling” with that many girls. This guy seemed to not have a single problem with it. I quickly closed the picture saying, “He is such a pig” and BAM. I was hit in the gut by a thought. This thought was this “What’s the difference of this man and all them girls, and a man leading girls on.”

            This thought nearly broke my heart, because though I don’t mean to, I do lead some girls on. I know its very bad of me, and I have got so much better with controlling myself while talking to girls. Something so simple as telling a girl she’s pretty can come off as “girl you are totally my type.” Though I don’t know if a girl really thinks that, I do know that it has to be in that ballpark.

            Since that thought had come to my head from what seems to be Jesus, I have thought of ways to stay away from that type of zone. It’s hard for a man that has a habit of flirting. This post is different from the others, because usually it’s about my first love or just something random, but this picture opened up my slightly callused eyes. This is what I want to say about this overall.

            That girls are more than special, they are fragile. They need someone to have a serious promise, not just a good pickup line. Before you start to flirt with a girl, and get her to like you. You should really ask yourself inside, is she really the one; or am I just going to waste time. For us men that don’t mean to flirt; you should really think about this. I know where you are at, because I’m flirtatious. The way that I have controlled myself over this slight change in my life is: be patient, Try to stay away from “Your cute, hot, sexy” Trust me this will help, and finally become a friend of the girl with signs of friendship. Now if you began to really feel something for her, don’t be a girl, but also don’t jump into something that you might regret in the first week.

            I am sorry if some parts of this are confusing, I just wanted to express some emotions.
