    Chicago Cubs Facts

    Saw this posted at Operation Sports and thought I'd share
    Twenty major events that have occurred since the Chicago Cubs last laid claim to a World Series championship:

    1. Radio was invented; Cubs fans got to hear their team lose.
    2. TV was invented; Cubs fans got to see their team lose.
    3. Baseball added 14 teams; Cubs fans get to see and hear their team lose to more clubs.
    4. George Burns celebrated his 10th, 20th, 30th, 40th, 50th, 60th, 70th, 80th, 90th and 100th birthdays.
    5. Haley's comet passed Earth twice.
    6. Harry Caray was born....and died. Incredible, but true.
    7. The NBA, NHL and NFL were formed, and Chicago teams won championships in each league.
    8. Man landed on the moon, as have several home runs given up by Cubs pitchers.
    9. Sixteen U.S. presidents were elected.
    10. There were 11 amendments added to the Constitution.
    11. Prohibition was created and repealed.
    12. The Titanic was built, set sail, sank, was discovered and became the subject of major motion pictures, the latest giving Cubs fans hope that something that finishes on the bottom can come out on top.
    13. Wrigley Field was built and becomes the oldest park in the National League.
    14. Flag poles were erected on Wrigley Field roof to hold all of the team's future World Series pennants. Those flag poles have since rusted and been taken down.
    15. A combination of 40 Summer and Winter Olympics have been held.
    16. Thirteen baseball players have won the Triple Crown; several thanked Cubs pitchers.
    17. Bell-bottoms came in style, went out of style and came back in.
    18. The Chicago White Sox, Cleveland Indians, Boston Red Sox and the Florida Marlins have all won the World Series.
    19. The Cubs played 14,153 regular-season games; they lost the majority of them.
    20. Alaska, Arizona, Hawaii, Oklahoma and New Mexico were added to the Union.

    I would love it if the Reds had some kind of message on the scoreboard before the game when they play the Cubs: "Welcome 1908 World Champions"

    Carlos Zambrano: Even Dusty can't break his arm.

    I wouldn't bet against it.

    GAC, get to work on that 1908 banner for Opening Day.

    Dusty has at least a couple of months to ruin Zambrano.

    Man, I hate the Cubs...
