    Cubs and Clones

    Does anyone else have a masochistic tendency do root for both the Cubs and Clones?

    I have noticed that each season for these teams is like yin and yang. When one makes the postseason, the other fails.

    Cubs Clones
    2000 Last Bowl
    2001 Out Bowl
    2002 Out Bowl
    2003 playoffs Last
    2004 Out Bowl
    2005 Out Bowl
    2006 Last Last (Both coaches replaced)
    2007 Playoffs Last
    2008 Playoffs Last
    2009 Out Bowl

    last championship 1908 1911

    Nice research....looks like ISU gets a bowl this year.

In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

    What this tells me is that I'll be happy about one of the two every year. I wish I could be happy about both, along with men's hoops, all in one year...just once...

    I can't stand the Cubs. I sometimes kind of wish they would finally win it so this lovable loser, "This year is the year" every year crap would finally end.

    I've always loved when Chicago fails, now I love it even more.

    Re: Cubs and Clones

    Do you have any friends/acquaintences that don't understand or rip on you for cheering for ISU because they are "losers" and then turn around and cheer for the Cubs themselves?
