View Full Version : Cubs fan takes cue from YES

This is a real transcript of a conversation I had with a Cubs fan over the internet. Usually, this guy is one of the smart ones, and he criticizes his team almost as much as I criticze the Sox, but today this was just not the case.

(names have been changed to protect the innocent)

cub fan: being a cubs fan is like being a black person in the 1950s south
cub fan: everybody hates you
HomeFish: um
HomeFish: the media loves the Cubs
HomeFish: they fawn over the prospect of the Cubs winning something
cub fan: but the fans hate us
cub fan: i see cub hatred on every fan site
cub fan: the "Scrubs" or the "flubs"
cub fan: it's really irritating


I can't help but be reminded of the "Jeter should wear Jackie Robinson's number" article.
