    Re: We are not mocking the Cubs enough

    I like Wrigley. I've had a blast at Wrigley sucking down Old Style beer and watching the Reds beat the Cubs several times.

    The rooftop experience is pretty sweet too...and lots of beer involved there as well. I like Wrigleyville. Cool atmosphere, and yes, more beer.

    Notice a trend?

    Re: We are not mocking the Cubs enough

    The last time the Cubs won the World Series Football fields looked like this



    During the early days following the introduction of the forward pass, longitudinal lines were added so that the field became a series of rectangles or squares. The football fathers of that time thought the forward pass was just a little too much of a good thing and so in an effort to limit the impact you could only pass the ball from your square to an ajoining one.

    I really liked Wrigley when I was in college.

    Of course, I really liked flannel and Terrence Trent D'Arby too.

    Also, remember the Titanic just started to be built December of 1908.
    When the Cubs last won a World Series, that same season Cy Young won 21 games and posted a 1.26 ERA. Notice I didn't state that the winner of the Cy Young award did that- no Cy Young himself was still active and did that!
    When the Cubs last won a World Series Geronimo was still alive.
    When the Cubs last won a World Series Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid had not yet met their demise in Bolivia.
    When the Cubs last won a World Series the United States had been a British colony for more years (169 years) than it had been an independent nation (132 years).
    At the time the Cubs last won a World Series Chevrolet did not yet exist.
    At the time the Cubs last won a World Series the American flag only had 46 stars.

    "Left Field sucks, Right Field sucks"

    I was there, mid 80's, $5 or 6 bucks to sit in the bleachers, if I remember correctly.

    Shirts off, sitting in the glorious sun, drinking Old Style. These days, I have restraining order against me taking off ANY clothing in public.

    and no one can force me to drink Old Style ever again. Or Hudy Delight...

    The reason we don't mock the Cubs is the same as the reason you don't clean a self-cleaning oven.

    Knock'em while they're down. But I still say Theo will turn them around. They were under some really bad contracts.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    Is this the same Theo known for handing out ridiculous contracts while in Boston. Believe me once he gets out from underneath this mess he will bury himself again.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    If Theo has the same success in Chicago that he had in Boston, Cub fans would absolutely say it was worth it.
