    Overhand pitching had only been legal for 24 years when the Cubs last won the World Series.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    The Cubs last won the World Series just five years after the NL finally made a foul ball equal a strike

    Maybe that explains why they think that Steve Bartman cost them a WS appearance. Sure that makes no sense, but neither does their stated reasoning.

    The last time the Cubs won the World Series, the first animal had just come out of the sea onto land.

    Re: We are not mocking the Cubs enough

    The last time the Cubs won a World Series other major league baseball teams that season included the Boston Doves, Cleveland Naps, Brooklyn Superbas and New York Highlanders.
    The last time the Cubs won a World Series the NFL was more than a decade away from being founded.
    The last time the Cubs won a World Series, in college football the field was 110 yards long, teams had 3 downs to gain ten yards for a first down, touchdowns were worth 5 point and field goals were worth four points, and the Quakers of Penn claimed the national title.
    The last time the Cubs won a World Series, women in the United States were still more than a decade away from achieving the right to vote nationally.

    Anyone over the age of 43 in the stands of the Cubs last World Series victory would have been alive to see the end of the Civil War.
