The traveling Cub hat

Wearing a Cub hat is not something I like to do, but I had to do it to pay off a bet with my brother, Chris. Every time, the Cubs and Cardinals play each, we bet each other what I called a "pride" bet. When the Cardinals lose more than they win in a series, I have to wear a hat with a big red C on it.

So, I was paying off a bet to my brother by wearing it to the Austin Techcrunch event last night. For some reason, the Cub fans came out of the network and commented on the hat.

In all those great exchanges, I might have met a prospective client and impressed one that I was talking to about work for his company. Seems his favorite team resides on the northside of Chicago.

What can I say? I suppose success breeds success.
