Whenever the Red Sox are out of the playoffs, I always root for the Cubs...we know a little about curses in New England and can feel your pain. Maa-maa.
I've lived in LA now for 17+ years and of course I have friends who are big Dodgers fans. Over the years they've tried to convert me. I stalwartly refuse. Then they tried the tactic of "well, ok, but the Dodgers can be your NL team. C'mon you live here". I had to explain that no.. my NL team was the Cubs for precisely that same reason - I've lived that pain.
eamus catuli! Yeah, I am a lifelong cubs fan. When I used to work outside, and had to drive around all day, nothing beat listening to Pat Hughes and Santo.This conversation has got me singing "Dying Cubs Fan's Last Request"
Told his friends "You know the law of averages says:
Anything will happen that can"
That's what it says
"But the last time the Cubs won a National League pennant
Was the year we dropped the bomb on Japan"
The Cubs made me a criminal
Sent me down a wayward path
They stole my youth from me
(that's the truth)
I'd forsake my teachers
To go sit in the bleachers
In flagrant truancy
