"The Cubs have been a legend for years. Nothing to do with baseball. You have to understand that. The Cubs' popularity had nothing whatsoever to do with baseball. It's a place to come to as, say, the Air Show is, the Auto Show, the Art Institute. It's a place to be at, and many have come from suburbs and nearby towns. It's not really baseball. It's a place to be at. We see that with the bimbos and the louts and the Bud Lights.

I don't want to glorify the old days because they weren't that good, either, but when you went to see the Sox, at least it was a ballgame." -- Studs Terkel to the Tribune's Steve Rosenbloom.

You know who was a great story? Moe Berg. He could catch. He was so-so. But he was a linguist. He worked in the Army to do some decoding. He could speak about seven languages, so one of the writers wrote: "He could speak in seven languages, but couldn't catch in one."

^Another gem from the Studs interview^ :cool:

Moe Berg was also a spy for the OSS & CIA. link (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moe_Berg)

Presumably nobody will accuse Studs Terkel of being "flubsessed." Maybe we should send him a WSI t-shirt. He seems to "get it."

Another good one:
