I don’t want to talk about it.
Weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth, yet again. Sob. For a while the Cubbies were a good distraction from TEC. Oh well.
It’s gonna be a long winter. Ditto and Amen.
I can somewhat sympathize with you Kendall. I’m not a Cubbie. I am a Red Sox fan. We had to live with the Curse of the Bambino (Babe Ruth) and wait 86 years to win a World Series. The Cubs may not have come through this time, but they have great fans. Hats off to all those loyal Chicago fans who stand by their beloved team!
Lots of people have bad centuries. 😉
In desperate times like this, it’s good to remember the old familiar refrain of Cubs’ fans everywhere: “Wait till next year!”
I was there last night (not in the park, but a few blocks away). An eerie calm set over the area around 8PM, and a helicopter repeatedly circled with its searchlight honing in on the streets and alleys. A distraught Cub fan perhaps…
They still have the most beautiful ball park in the majors.
I am a D-back fan and naturally am very happy with the outcome of the series. We have had alot to celebrate; our team is extremely young, top-heavy with rookies, three of whom were brought up directly from AA ball. The pundits had us finishing last in the NL West. We still have a tough road ahead: the Rockies are red hot, then if we get past them, the Red Sox or Indians will be no picnic. For me this has been a great diversion from TEC, the HOB, etc. Know though that had we not made the playoffs, I would have pulled for the Cubs; y’all are way overdue for a world championship.
Party like its 1908, baby!
I was in a Wendy’s once, and said “Well, hope springs eternal”. It was relavent to the conversation at the time, but I don’t remember that part. The man behind me immediately asked when I had lived in Chicago. We had a good laugh together. I am heartbroken the Cubs are out of the playoffs, but remember the above!
What do the Cardinals and Cubs have in common? Neither has won a World Series in its new stadium yet….oh, wait…
I feel your pain, even more so as I live here in Chi-Town. Say a prayer for Ron Santo–I’ve never heard a sadder ending to a broadcast game.
Look at the bright side: the world will not come to an end in October!
Please, enough of the narcissistic whining of Cub fans. They, and Red Sox fans have the illusion that all baseball fans are SO interested in their love of their team and their great loyalty, and that they “understand and know” baseball better than others. True disclosure – this from a disgruntled Giants fan. Thx.
Tip of the cap to the Diamondbacks.
Since the Rangers imploded extra early this year, I’ve paid no attention to baseball. Cubs fans are whiners. My only remaining hope for the season is that the Yankees tank and go home.
