Here's a great article in the Sun-Times today:

Good line:


Welcome back to Cubdom, Greg. You were born a Cub, destined to a career of meaninglessness. So you left for Atlanta, made a Hall of Famer of yourself, won the World Series. You have been a winner, which is to say an Atlanta Braves player. And now you are back as a Cub, wearing a golf cap while your old team goes to the playoffs.

Couch suggests that the love affair between the fans and the Cubs is NOT one-side and wonders whether the fans' patience is finally up. I have to disagree here. He's forgetting that most Cub fans have a noxious combination of money and stupidity. They'll keep paying scalpers prices just to be at Wrigley Field and most won't even be paying attention to the action on the field.

My favorite line in that article was directed at the cubs:

You are not lovable losers anymore. Just losers.

I liked:

I didn't get dumb overnight,'' Baker said.

However long it took, that isn't the issue. :smile:
