Coming to Terms with the sCrUBS

hot cubs chick 3.jpgAs a Cardinals fan living in the Chi, the baseball season never really begins for me until St. Louis comes to town and I get my first taste of blood as I camp out at Wrigley for a weekend.  Black eyes, sprained ankles, hoarse voice… all welcome reminders of just how deep (and serious) this rivalry can be.

But the older I get, the clearer I see, which is why I can say with brutal honesty that the Chicago Cubs are the absolute best rival a fan could ask for.

Yep.  That’s right.  They’re the best.  Because they don’t… win… championships.

Think about it.  Yankees fans, remember how awful you felt when the Red Sox overcame in 2004?  And what about having to watch Papelbon’s antics during the 2007 run?  Reverse that and imagine the utter malcontent suffered by the Red Sox for eons while the Yankees ran up the World Series trophy count.

Giants fans must’ve been sick watching Kirk Gibson’s shot in 1988.  And likewise, those Dodgers fans who saw Willie Mays’ catch seal the deal in 1954 couldn’t have been too happy.

But we Cardinals fans… seriously, what the hell do we have to be sick about?  We have the best player in baseball, we have arguably the best manager in baseball, and our arch rivals haven’t won jack scheisse in over 100 years.

With that in mind, as I prepare for the annual battle that is Cubs v. Cards, this year I’m gonna focus on the fact that this rivalry is a lame duck rivalry — that I can be confident my team will be better.  Therefore I am going to focus on the visual pleasantries that (surprisingly) can be found in abundance at the Friendly Confines.

Y’feel me?

Good.

Now, wish me luck.

Hate me ‘cuz I try to see all the angles, just don’t hate me ‘cuz I’m right.

Happy Friday!

Jeff

Now Jeff, I know it’s Chicago and almost anything is allowed, but remember how old you are, and that pedophi…. is still illegal even when they wear a Cubs outfit and swear they are old enough… If it looks to good to be true, your either drunk or about to be arrested… LOL

hahaha how hard it must be for you to look at these women with cubs gear on XD Reminds me of Anger Management when Adam Sandler’s character finds out that the girl he goes home with is a red sox fan. All hell breaks loose then XD

They might have hot chicks going to their games but, “Jesus” still “Hates the Cubs” !!! ..and so do I.
Nice win today for the Cards. I watched.

Emma — Excellent advice!
Peter — No worries there. I always ask for I.D.
Mimi — It’s tough… but I can block it out if I have to ;-)
Mike — That he does… and yes, that was how all the games against the sCrUBS should go ;-)

Must be nice to have a rival that never beats your team. LOL. Very relaxing. Enjoy your time at Wrigley and don’t start any trouble!

It’s a shame that those girls are Cubs fans, because they are quite attractive, but they are ruined by their fandom-Haha

I am not too worried about the Cubs ever winning a title, and can’t see it happening in my lifetime (I am only 16) so life is good and the Cubs are a great rival. Now, If you remember, in Back to the Future II the Cubs had won the World Series in 2015, but for some reason (it is a 100 year reason) I don’t see that happening

Go Cards!!!!!!!!!
