2017 Cubs Buddies
Cubs Buddies were started as a joke a few years ago. We were going to the Cubs game and we were talking and Chando said "Alou is my buddy. He is my guy." And we thought that was fun to each have our own Cubs buddy for the players that weren't doing so well. So now we each have a buddy and we cheer more loudly for him than anyone else. We are that player's biggest fan. This year I am doing this a little bit differently. Instead of giving 1 guy the buddy of the week I am assigning points to the top 5 Cubs buddies. The guy that had the best week will get 5 points, the 2nd best guy will get 4 points, etc. The Buddy of the Year are the buddies the earned the most points. Buddy of the month and guys that made the All Star team are worth double points and are in bold.
