One positive thing....
I thought of today about the tight race for the division.... it has kept the "bandwagon" fans in check. You don't see near as many crawling out of the woodwork as we have in the past, even in 2003. Nothing drives me more crazy than to try to spark up a conversation with someone wearing a Cubs hat or t-shirt, and they can't even tell you who the first baseman is for the team!
I don't mind having people "jumping on" as long as once they jump on, they don't jump off as soon as things get bad. Some people actually become fans by jumping on...but it is those who take the time to learn about the team, the history, the beauty of it all that deserve the title of Cub fan.
My boss, who is a Cub fan, has been so negative the past few weeks. "They're gonna blow it. They're not going to make it. Why are you getting so excited, they aren't going to win the division." So, Friday, i asked him which team he was going to root for because he could no longer hold the honor of being a Cub fan...and when they win the division, and perhaps the World Series, he has NO RIGHT to celebrate with the true fans. LOL. I told him to root for the Devil Rays, then he could be as negative as he wanted to be!
Baseball season's underway...
So you'd better get ready for a brand new day
Hey Chicago whattya say?
