Sometimes I get ruffled when criticized but in this case if you or anyone else thinks I'm nuts or wrong about it, I accept it. It's not a popular stance.
No, it wouldn't be accepted in those towns. But, sadly, Chicago has accepted losing for years, in all its sports. The Bears get the most heat, but really, this isn't *that* tough a town to play in otherwise. So I guess Cubs fans feel, if we're gonna lose, why not have fun while watching it?
