    Thumbs down Cubs are terrible

    Who cares about the Cubs. The Cubs are joke! Why is there such interest in the worst team in baseball history? The Cubs have won nothing forever!! As far as local teams, the Royals, Twins, and Cards have much more success.

    I had similar feelings reading the Cubs thread from earlier today. I swear their fans are brainwashed because everytime they show ANY signs of success, they all come out of the wood work claiming something big on the horizon. Of course, nothing ever comes of it. I don't hate the Cubs by any means, just find the entire thing humorous. Hell, I'm a Cyclone fan, what do I know.

    If the Cubbie fans wanna drink the koolaid, I'm down with that. Gives me good reading material.

    Re: Cubs are terrible

    The worst thing is that most Cubs fans take pride in the fact that their team sucks. It's like part of their identity and they use it as an excuse to drink a lot and act like a-holes. It's a social gathering point, and its sad because a lot of people who are "Cubs fans" couldn't tell you a single thing about the team or baseball in general. But sure enough they'll be the first ones to say "OMG, I love the Cubbies!" and then throw their half-full beer cans (and, to make it worse, Old Style and PBR) onto the field.

    I know for a fact there are real Cubs fans who care about the team and baseball. It's sad that they are identified with that culture.

    By the way, I am a diehard Cardinals fan. This is not hating on the Cubs because I have no room to do any trash talking. It just bugs me that there are so many Cubs fans but so few who truly are.

    The cubs are hitting .500 in the absolute worst division in baseball.

    Re: Cubs are terrible

    How bout 'em Cards and off-white Sox? Oh, that's right they're batting 1000, ERA's are 0, and their fans are perfect. Give me a break...

    Cub fans love their team just as much as the next team's.

    I have no problem with the honest cub fans, but i have an intense dislike for the bandwagoners, or the people who think sammy sosa is still a cub.

    Have the Cyclones went to more bowl games than the Cubs went to playoffs?

    Re: Cubs are terrible

    Crosscyed, I enjoy your blog.

    You're a Sox fan, correct? Didn't some part of you want to see Frank Thomas hit his history maker and have him continue to hit them even though he's no longer in a Sox uni. Same thing with MJ to the Wiz. Now I'll be the first to admit that it was time for Sammy to go. He quit on the team that year, but after you root for a guy for so long, I think it's impossible to wish ill will on him unless he's truly a Benedict Arnold. I don't know why anyone would still think (or even want) Sammy playin at Wrigley, but I think those feelings come about from rooting for a certain player for so long. It's definitely not limited to the Cubs fanbase either.

    About the bandwagoner issue, that seems to be thrown at the Cubs more than any other club. I'm not sure it's entirely fair either. The Cubs fill visiting stadiums better than just about anybody so it's not always about "the drunk fest" at the sanctuary at Wrigley either. When they are at Wrigley, they enjoy packed houses of fans who may over-do it but are at least there year-in and year out. This huge group consists of all kinds of people, not just middle-aged alcoholics there to get away from the nagging wife.

    They have a huge, passionate and knowledgable fanbase that has a history cheering for teams who lose early in the playoffs. There's a misconception that all the Cubs have ever done is lose, but the Cubs all-time actually lead the series with the Cardinals and are tied 30-30 in the short interleague match-up with the Sox. They've done plenty of winning, just not really when it's counted. Of course there are going to be the idiots in every fanbase, but that's hardly a reason to diss a group who LOVES their team that just so happens to be preparing for the following year every September...

    When I meant people still think of him as a Cub, is that I run into people that think he still suits up for them. I realize his identity will always be as a Cub.

    As far as Frank, after he shed that jersey, I didn't care as much. I wouldn't feel the same way when and if Buehrle is gone.

    Re: Cubs are terrible

    Sorry for the misinterpretation then. If someone hasn't realized that Sammy's not a Cub, then I don't think they're allowed to be called a fan of anything. They'd not be watching enough baseball, that's for sure.
