    Question Cubs Fans?

    So a discussion with Superfan/reading a couple of posts/threads tonight has made me wonder...

    How many Cyclones fans are also Cubs fans? The engineer in me is looking for some parallels in the fan base and I thought a poll would help me to see if my hypothesis is correct


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    Re: Cubs Fans?

    I am a closet Cubs fan. But I recognize that the only reasons the Cubs exist, is to disappoint their fan-base. Does that make me agnostic, or what???


    I'm baaack! See my Hot Milk For Breakfast blog under Social Groups for more details

    I've been a Cubs fan since 1983, when we first got cable.

    I like pain

    1979 and counting. It makes for an easy transition from baseball to ISU football most of the time.

    Being a Cyclones & Cubs fan, I know what it's like to live through the eyes of Charlie Brown.


    One day we're going to kick that football. Lucy be damned!!!

    Q: How many (people of the Will & Grace persuasion) does it take to turn over a car?


    A: You'll have to wait until the Cubs win the World Series to find out.

    Re: Cubs Fans?

    Go Royals.

    Ya I know that it is even more pointless to root for them than it is for the Cubs or Cyclones, but when I'm on my deathbed, and they win another World Series, I can say that I'm not a band wagon fan. Also, at least they have won it in my life-span once, more than I can say for the Cubs.

    Re: Cubs Fans?

    I seem to always root for the underdog no matter who's playing! I guess then that just transpired into the teams I actually do root for. Cubs and Clones. Might as well become a Bears fan since they suck!

    Yeah I'm heading back to my Baltimore Orioles... and they're doing even worse now than they were when I was there!

    I left shortly after the Ravens got there... but as I understand it they aren't exactly top of the league either...
