Re: Watching the Cubs rally
I have never liked the Cubs. It really has nothing to do with their fans though all the curses and excuses are boresome. It goes back to the late 70's when cable TV first came to Southern Indiana. Myself, a Reds fan, and my roomate a huge Cards fan would watch the Cubs on WGN during the afternoon. The Cubs were a joke, as usual. Brickhouse and Bourdeau were ridiculous announcing the comedy of errors that were the Cubs. We rooted for them to lose and I have rooted against them ever since. And they usually found the most comedic ways to lose.
I did have a brief Momentary Lapse of Reason in 84 because even if he was a Cub, Ryne Sandberg is one of my favorite players of All Time. I still would not have been able to root for the Cubs to beat Sparky, Gibby, Morris and the Tigers if would have come to that.
