I'm sitting here trying to figure out how the Cubs' fan base is going to react to a 1 and done in the playoffs. Knowing them, they'll treat it as if they just won their 5th straight World Series.

When the Cubs had a chance to clinch it in Cincy in 2003 I went down there for the Wednesday game, they lost and the crowd was sparse. The Thursday night game we went to was ridiculous, it was just as obnoxious as Wrigley and thank God they lost. I wanna say Todd Van Popple pitched.

They can beat the Mets if the Phillies get the Wild Card.

Cubbie fans can be the cockiest bunch around, outside of perhaps Boston Other Sox fans.

If you think I'm joking head over to the Sox newsgroup (http://www.whitesoxinteractive.com/vbulletin/alt.sports.baseball.chi-whitesox) and see some of their loudmouth boasts.

Here though is but one example (http://groups.google.com/group/alt.sports.baseball.chi-whitesox/msg/c8d9d6af3dafa796?dmode=source):

My last words on this will be a paraphrase of my first words - the Sox are the "other team" in Chicagoland, and may be even more marginal after the Cubs win the 2007 World Series.

It's stories like this that get pushed in my face when I tell my friends they only like the Cubs because of Wrigley. I thinks it's more the hip factor rather than Wrigley. Sheep!

I hope the Lemmings all head down there. There will be two major benefits:

1. No Cub fans in Chicago to annoy us for a few days.
2. More $$$ for the Reds to sign FA's the Cubs want.

Another benefit which is probably already realized is that they will (further) polarize Red fans against them.

I imagine it'll be more "woe is us, boo hoo, nothing goes right for our Cubbies." Throw in some new bull**** curse and a few "aw shucks, they're still so darn lovable" platitudes from the major media outlets. Add a dash of condescending "The Cubs are truly Chicago's team" speeches from the local sports media and a few overblown statements about how the Cubs winning the World Series would have more historical significance than the moon landing and World War II combined for good measure. Mix to taste, then proceed to vomit in disgust.

Remember...in 2003, there was so much arrogance and B.S. about how "this is the year" and "the curse is broken" that people like us were driven to a purgatory-style existence just because we weren't jumping on the bandwagon. I remember I was working at a radio station at that time, and everyone except myself and the station's news director fell for the hype. Well, after game 6 of that infamous NLCS, I was laughing hysterically at EVERYONE in the media faling for that hype. And then after game 7, all I did was simply point out that "not everyone in Chicago is a Cubs fan." Boy...that really rang loud considering all the "everyone wants the Cubs to win" hype coming from the press.

And you could tell who weren't the Cubs fans back then...we were the only ones smiling in Chicago once that series ended. And I'm still smiling now that I'm thinking about it.

My daughter goes to the University of Cincinnati. She'll be thrilled to hear that the city will be inundated with Cubs fans again this weekend.
