Wanted to clear this up, as I had a Stupid Cub Fan Moment last nite.
A group of Sheep last nite insisted that the CUBS were the ones that started the wearing of Green Jerseys/Hats. I told them they were way off.
We were the first team to wear Green stuff werent we? was it in 1981?

Hangar is single handedly going to turn the Sox Clubhouse forum into the "Sox CUBhouse" forum.

In keeping with the new color craze of the depression years, the Brooklyn Dodgers surprised everyone by changing their more-or-less traditional “Dodger Blue” trim to a striking KELLY GREEN for the 1937 season. All-green caps, stockings and undersweaters — not a trace of blue to be found. Even the normal gray color of the road uniforms was replaced by TAN. It was St. Patrick’s Day all season long at Ebbetts Field as even the ushers were outfitted in green jackets.

Psychologist: dog
Hangar: Cubs
Psychologist: cat
Hangar: Cubs
Psychologist: grass
Hangar: Cubs
Psychologist: warm
Hangar: Cubs
Psychologist: Jupiter
Hangar: Cubs
Psychologist: You know, you seem to have an unusual fixation on the Cubs.
Hangar: Me?? You're the one that keeps bringing up Cub-related words.

Little know facts...

Following their baseball careers, Cubs infielders Tinker, Evers and Chance began WWI by assasinating Archduke Franz Ferdinand.

Nellie Fox discovered the cure for polio. He let his college roommate, Jonas Salk, have all the credit.

Ryne Sandberg was the lead engineer on the defective O-rings that caused the Challenger Space Shuttle disaster.

Ron Kittle created Seinfeld (but Mark Grace wrote the series finale).
