Default Intelligent Cub fan

An email I received from a die hard Cub fan friend of mine this morning:

'Guy's, I send you this message a changed man from my
experiences last night. No longer do I not understand
why Sox fans hate Cubs fans. The reason: Cubs fans
tolerate this crap. Not only did I have to sit and
watch the visiting team celebrate the last of their
improbable 3 victories in a row, but then I had to
listen to the PATHETIC Cubs fans chant "Cubbies",
"Cubbies." Then this morning I had to listen to the
rubber in my office say it was a good year. No it
wasn't, it was an utter failure and choke. Anyone who
does not agree with this is an idiot. It was utterly
the most disgusting thing I have ever heard and I have
to do a serious gut check on whether I can invest my
already shaky emotional stability in this team
anymore.'


I think that about says it all.

Buy him a Sox hat and get tickets to Opening Day.

When Sox fans talk like that, they're attacked as being lousy, whining, negative fans.

I question how "die hard" of a fan his friend was. "Die hard" Flub fans live in a fantasy world where the Flubs are always in the World Series and there are no other teams in MLB..........

Hopefully the guy will be at the Cell on Monday!

It's like a 12 step program. The first step is admitting you have a problem (being a Cub fan).

"Hello, my name is Joe, and was a Cub fan." Then he recounts his bottoming out, tells his horror stories about rooting for Jody Davis and not watching the game. Finally, Joe dons a Sox hat, enters the Cell, and enjoys the game.

I weep at the thought of another soul saved.

True, sounds like the next Ligue to me. Whatever you do, don't convert him before mullet night.

I like the analogy because being a Cub fan is exactly like having a destructive addiction. Though at this point, I would be happy ifthe Cub fan accepts some therapy even without the Sox hat. One thing at a time because this kind of therapy can take years.

This seemed like a logical place to post this:

I was sitting at the game today and the people a couple of rows in front of me suddenly started waving madly at no one in particular. When I noticed one of them talking on his cell phone, I realized they were waving at the TV cameras. I knew they weren't Brewers fans, and my first thought was "OMG, how embarassing that Sox fans have now started this crap." Then one of them turned around and I noticed the red C on his cap.
