Haha...wish I could quote it, but the second paragraph of the second tip on being a bandwagon fan in Gallo's article made me laugh.

Me too. I don't think this entire spread on the Cubs is meant to be complimentary.....

Yeah, the final line expresses his true feelings on the topic (and also neatly describes this August for the Cubs).

Don't go check out ESPN.com
That advice is valid any day of the year.

I agree. I thought it was a good, tounge-in-cheek read, and am glad the (White) Sox were not mentioned anywhere.

Agreed x2. I think the story is kind of making fun of the Cubs so for today only I would say go to espn.com.

Absolutely. I didn't read all of it, but I thought it was pretty funny.

MOD EDIT: Copyrighted Text (using the quote button doesn't make it all right)

I think this says it all, folks. The piece was meant to be tongue-in-cheek.

Oops! Sorry about the copyrighted material.

Perhaps the main article by DJ Gallo was to be take tongue-in-cheek (it is Page 2, after all), but then you also get a nice dose of Gene Wojciechowski proclaiming this is the year, a Uni-Watch column dedicated to the Scrubs, and a primer on Cub fandom.

Yuck. :puking:

Did you read the comments on the Wojciechowski article by the Cub fans? Most if not all the cub fans were ripping him, saying that it is too early for articles like this, I agree. Most of them seemed to know what they were talking about, imagine that:rolleyes:
