Default Shock! MLB makes Cubs Bracelets, too!

Mods. not sure if this belongs in here or Talking Baseball but... apparently the Cubs "believe". They're selling blue bracelets at their convention next week. I just came across this and found it to be "interesting". http://chicago.cubs.mlb.com/NASApp/m..._chc&fext=.jsp

typical Cub-ness...

the white sox do something for charity, to help out the community

the cubs do something for themselves to make a little more money.

The proceeds go to the Cubs' own charity.

Yeah, absolutely. It's their cheesiness that is obnoxious. Cub fans "believe".

Okay.....and the White Sox bracelet proceeds go to "White Sox Charities". The Cubs are not spending bracelet proceeds on payroll or anything. I'm sure they have a fine charity

Whats next, the Sox being shown in the first half hour of Sportscenter rather than the last 12 minutes? Please....

We all know that Chicago media is all about the Cubs, and the rest of the nation is all about the Yankees and Red Sox...Always has been, always will be...

The Sox bring a new definition to KW's "Flying under the radar" when it comes to stuff like this...
