Those are the kinds of stories I'm trying to collect in this podcast. One example is my friend <strong>Amy Jacobson</strong>. She is a fellow life-long Cubs fan who really wanted to see the team play in the 20-16 playoffs, despite the fact that she would need to travel across the country at the drop of a hat to do so. You could also take a look at my friend <strong>Liz Biddle</strong>. She suddenly found herself at the Hollywood premiere of Avengers End Game thanks to some clever guesswork by her husband and some intervention from Ryan Reynolds.</p>
