This post idea stemmed from an admission from the New York Times that they had a contingency cover in place for if the Chicago Cubs would have lost the World Series (spoiler: they didn’t lose): Well, being that the Cubs just slayed goats and curses and all manners of other Continue reading Fun With the Cubs and Photoshop
For years, we fans of the Chicago Cubs have gotten used to the term “lovable losers” whenever the Cubs get brought up. We have been forced to listen to jokes where the Cubs are the punchlines, “Hey speaking of losers…” and the hits kept on coming. Every year when the Continue reading The Hateable Winners?
It has been a few days since the Chicago Cubs won the World Series, and I am still flying as high as ever. This was a day I knew would happen one day, but I was never sure when that day would come. But today, we Cubs fans stand united Continue reading A World Series Dream Come True
