I posted this in the Sports Illustrated thread but realized it would be perfect for the general conference.

I always remember what my dad classified as the Five Basic Types of Cub Fans (I guess you'd have to make it Six now with the cable fans in other parts of the country, but anyway...). And, yes, I know he probably didn't make it up. But he always said the five categories were:

1. The elderly, because they have nothing better to do during the day.

2. The infirm, for the same reason.

3. Little kids, because they don't know any better and like the day games.

4. Wimps, because they won't go to the South Side at night.

5. Racists, for the same reason.

Discuss!

cheeses,
I think your folks all fit under No. 4 or No. 5.

people who like to go to a smelly old park with weeds and do everything other than watch the game until their steroid-abusing right fielder hits a solo zinger while the team is losing by double digits. that can be #6 or 7.

Hey Son! Don't impugn the name of the late, great fat, friendly Frazier Thomas!! There are many of us in our 40s and 50s who still consider Garfield Goose the rightful King of the United States!

What about the old:

"WGN was the only channel showing baseball where I live(d)" excuse?
