Nothing I love more than making fun of Cubs fans (except maybe making fun of Mets fans, but after last year that's just too easy). Cubs fans seem to have a rubbery resilience that is impervious to logic. Perhaps because it's so cold up there the brain's ability to surrender is impaired. On some level you have to admire their sticktoitiveness in the face of such crazy and repetitively devastating circumstances.
The Cubs have been playing averageish baseball lately, so if we can pull ourselves out of this collective team funk we're in, then perhaps we can pick up a few wins in the Windy City.
