It's a tradition that the Cubs football team started a couple of years ago. During the playoffs, at the end of the last practice before the game, the team shakes the hands of the senior players.

Lady Cubs softball finally earns golden ticket (10/21/14)
It is not a very big envelope, roughly six inches wide and eight inches long. It's white in color and has only two words printed on the outside -- quarterfinal winner.
