    Life as a Cyclone and Cub

    fan sucks! I think it's bad right now due to the Brewers and Cards being in the NLCS...but seriously, when do we catch a break...

    Will I ever see a truly magical season as a fan of either team?

    Re: Life as a Cyclone and Cub

    Many of us that somehow thought that it would be fun to pull for both teams.

    Just enjoy it when things do go well and realize that that it doesn't happen all the time.

    Plus drink heavy during all other times..... it helps numb reality.

    I guess I'm just happy I really don't like baseball at least.

    Re: Life as a Cyclone and Cub

    I feel like I am some kind of self abusive mental deviate for loving the Cubs and the Cyclones. But you cant help who you grew up loving.

    I blame my Grandpa, he had season tickets for ISU ever since I could remember, he would take me and my brother to every game (Walden Era). It was like he was thinking ahead about building character for us. (This is the same Grandpa who took us to see our first MLB came in Chicago at Wrigley.) AHHHHHHHHHHH

    I feel your pain, as I am also a fan of both. Being a Cyclone fan we kind of did have a magical year in 2000. The football team went 9-3, and both basketball teams had good years. Back then, I thought to myself we may never have a year like that.

    I hope times like that would last forever, but they rarely do.

    I dealt with it this year by focusing on the Bulls season till June, mostly skipping the Cubs because I was 100% sure they'd suck, getting to Cyclone football a couple months later, which gets me to the new loaded Cyclone basketball team.

    If you already a Cubs fan you should give the Bulls a try. For anyone who hates the NBA because of poor defense and big egos, they haven't seen the Chicago Bulls lately with the most humble MVP you could possibly imagine and bone crushing defense, they just need some more outside shooting...of course this might not be an option next spring with a strike.

    Re: Life as a Cyclone and Cub

    It does seem like a curse. Growin up in Atlanta as an Iowa State fan was not easy as everyone was a UGA/Florida/UNC/Duke fan.... I suppose its my father's fault for playing there! To boot, his best friend was a guy named Jim Doran who entertained my Mom and Dad at Detroit Lion football games ... so therefore I have to be a Detroit Lions fan. Its in my DNA, I can't change it. But when something special happens it really means something...

    at least I'm not a Bucks fan!!! You damn cheesehead! You're living a charmed life right now Brad....it can't last! I'm actually rooting for a Brewers/Tigers series...I always pull for the National league....so I'm pulling for your team.

    Yeah...the Vikings suck bad right now as well (I'm tired of washed up QBs coming to Minnesota to fade into oblivion).....but the Bulls should be on top still....oh wait....there's not going to be an NBA season......

    As others have pointed out....believe in the Mayor!
