Nothing Worse Than Being A Cubs Fan
Every time I think about how hard and torturous it is to be a Mets fan, I lose sight of a far worse fate: being a Cubs fan. I mean, can you imagine 100 years without a championship for your favorite team? And all the bad luck (from the infamous black cat game in '69 to losing to the Padres in the '84 NLCS after being up 2-0 to Steve Bartman) that this sad (but very popular) franchise has had to endure over the years? Now the Cubs are the favorites to represent the NL in the World Series this year and they're already down 1-0 to a Dodger team that's really good, esp. with Manny Ramirez on it. Oh well.
