I always felt sorry for Cub fans, and really thought that they would wake up some day, and realize what chumps they've been over the years. Now, they're starting to scare me.

Maybe they want a last-ditch try at a Sosa autograph while he's still with the losers? Assuming he show's up.

A misery-loves-company cry-in-each-other's-beerfest, lamenting over what coulda/ woulda/ shoulda been. YAWN.

The Cubs can auction urinal cakes and the lemmings would drive the price up to $1000 each. The convention selling out surprises you?

I feel kinda "Forrest Gump" here:

"Stupid is as stupid does".

Or something like that.:D: :D: :D: :D:

I underestimated the interest in the Pee on someone's hands clinic

Just out of curiosity I went over to eBay to see what these things were going for on the market. These a'holes are selling them for $200 EACH. Wasn't there a prophet that said this was a sign of the apocalypse?

No, selling out doesn't suprise me, selling out in two hours after blowing yet another season does.

There is nothing more pathetic than a Cubs fan. What ticks me off is so many people (mostly in the media) want us to be like this. Brittany Spears is smarter than this.

If I lived in chicago, I would stay away from the cubs convention! Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups!
