Every Hundred Years

From the Mailbag

Dear Mr. Clarke,

I am writing on behalf of Richard Brimeyer with respect to a project that may be of interest to you and your readers: a book that chronicles the Cubs' current season from a fan's perspective as the team strives for the World Series. The book is titled "Every Hundred Years", and is being self-published by Rick. The impetus for the project is Rick's brother-in-law Phil Doll, a tireless Cubs fan who has been struggling with Multiple Myeloma for a number of years. The book began as a series of "journal" entries on Caring Bridge, a social networking site for others contending with serious illness, but considerable interest on that site gave Rick the idea of turning it into a book as a way of offsetting Phil's medical expenses.

More information about the project, as well as sample entries, can be found on our website, If you think the project may be of interest to your Cubs Blog Army readership, we would greatly appreciate a link to our web site.

Thanks for your consideration!

Thanks so much for posting this on your site. I really appreciate it as does my brother-in-law Phil.

Unfortunately, the book does include the extremely disappointing NLDS. I also added an Epilogue, however, with a more entertaining ending.

Fans will appreciate reliving the 97 victories, and sharing the misery of the losses. It should be good therapy for all; we need it.
