Bleacher Nation founder Brett Taylor is this week’s Glass Half Empty podcast guest. There’s an interesting feeling amongst Cubs fans right now. Many fan bases with tortured histories would be in a mood where they’re almost waiting for the other shoe to drop if they were in similar position to the Cubs. Jake Arrieta has been numbers defyingly un-hittable in the second half, the team probably performed a year ahead of schedule, and there’s serenity and eternal optimism amongst the fans.
We talked about all that, and then about Brett’s journey of leaving his job as a big firm lawyer to running his blog full-time, and the administrative details that requires.
