How to describe Wednesday night to who don’t really “get” how it felt

Posted by Mike G on November 05, 2016

These are actual texts/emails I wrote the day following the magical, yet uber stressful Game 7:

To my aviation buff brother:

“Imagine James Doolittle and Chuck Yeager taking you on a personal test flight to orbit the earth and during descent they have simultaneous heart attacks, and just as you are thinking you will crash they resuscitate and make a smooth landing.

That is what it was like for me…”

To a new friend of mine, a delightful 70ish year old Russian immigrant, who loves classical music, especially Opera:

“Imagine the finest performance of your favorite Opera - with Rene Fleming  or Pavarotti belting out the most lovely and stirring arias.

Think of the emotion it would cause you to feel.

Now, multiply that feeling times 100.

THAT is how I feel about last night’s Cub’s game!

It was amazing.

Mike “

Mike has a long term relationship with Rogers Park, having lived here at various times in his life, most recently returning to the neighborhood in August, 2009. While living here as a third year law student, he remembers drunken nights at Biddy Mulligan’s and hosting a couple of memorable parties that he, hypocritically, now forbids his own tenants from having. Years later, after completing his stint as a lawyer, Mike started investing in apartment buildings in Rogers Park (and elsewhere), and soon after, did what many newly divorced real estate investors do: he moved into one of his buildings. In 1992 Mike was one of the founding members of the Rogers Park Builders Group, an organization that he eventually headed for six years, until yielding those reigns three years ago. Around a decade ago, on a whim, he reserved the web site “Rogerspark.com,” which he has been developing ever since, and which co-hosts RP BizArts networking events. Mike is the proud father of three wonderful children, Amy, Mitch and Ella.
