Fuck the Cubs

I'm done with the Cubs. I've been a fan since at least the age of 9, but I am absolutely done with them this time. 2003 was painful, when they blew a 3-1 game lead in the NLCS, but this hurts a lot worse.

They had the best record in the NL, and had the best record in the majors for a lot of the season, and this was their year of destiny - exactly 100 years since their last World Series victory. It was a season of hope and change and vindication.

And they threw it all away.

Outscored 26-5 in a 3-game series. Their worst 3-game series all season, without question. They played like a cellar team, not like a team that had the best record in the NL.

Fuck the Cubs. I am done. I no longer consider myself a fan of the Chicago Cubs. They can suck my liberal dick.

Well, I'm a conservative, but when they are done sucking your dick they can suck mine.

I declare myself a free-agent fan. I will swear my allegiance to the team that offers up the uniform that will match the best with my other clothes. So, we're talking black, basically. Yankees, Giants, whatever, just black and NOT the other Chitcago team.
