    Rod Blagojevich is apparently rooting for the Cubs from his prison cell.

    According to his wife, the former Illinois governor sent a letter to his daughter Sunday night comforting her about the fact that he “won’t be home to see the Cubs make it to the Promised Land.”

    “As much as it has been a lifelong dream of mine to see the Cubs in the World Series, if I were given a choice of whether you or I would be able to see it, I wouldn't hesitate a second and have it be you,” he wrote to his daughter Amy Blagojevich.

    Blagojevich goes on to discuss memories he had with his daughter, taking her to Cubs games as a child, and encourages her to take her younger sister to a game.

    “Now it will be you and Annie together at Wrigley Field rooting for the Cubs just like you and I used to,” he wrote. “And as you look after your little sister at the game, you could take the part I used to play, and Annie could take the role you used to play.”

    The Cubs return home to face the Mets Tuesday for Game 3 of the NLCS. The Mets currently lead the series 2-0.

    Blagojevich said he plans to watch the games on TV and will root for the team.
