Different Types Of Fans...

When Megan watches the Cubs with me, she says things like:
  • Go Cubs GO!
  • Come on, buddy!
  • Oh, you didn't get there in time, but good hustle!
  • Nice try! Nice try, buddy!
  • Good eye!
  • Ooo, I don't know if I would've swung at that.
  • That's too bad.
  • Nice play! (she says that to both teams)
  • Nice hit!
  • Aw, next time...
When I watch the Cubs, I say things like this:
  • Fucking Cubs.
  • Stupid fucking Cubs.
  • Come on, fucking Cubs!
  • Come on, dickhead, just get a fucking hit.
  • Fucking shitty-ass fucking Cubs.
  • Aw, fucking shit!
  • This is possibly the worst team of all time.
  • Oh, look. He's behind in the count. Big fucking shock.
  • Losers. Absolute fucking losers.
  • It's not that hard to hit a fucking home run, dude.
I know I'm a drag to watch a Cubs game with, but it comes from a lifetime's worth of being the fan of a losing organization. Don't get me wrong, I'll always be a fan. It's just that I feel I've earned the right to be hard on the Cubs. I always start with the assumption that they'll find a way to lose, and when they don't, I'm pleasantly surprised. I do hope they win it all some day, but I'm not holding my breath.

Strike three. Cubs just lost to the shitty-ass fucking Cardinals. Fuck.

Go Sox.

the Phillies' fans are the same way, to some extent. It's sad, really!

I don't get it. Is this about some sort of bear TV show or something?

You can always console yourself with it's just baseball and not an important sport like football! ;^)

Wow, that's an awful lot of fucking talking. Maybe you both should shut up and watch the game.

Enjoy the grumbles. We lived that life with the Braves for years. Then they had that great streak and it became trendy to cheer 'em on, which took the fun away from the old fans. Sort of glad they're no longer post-season shoe-ins.

We feel the same about the buffalo bills

I love how people comment that they understand. No one fucking understands; it's 100 years this year people. We suck the most, at least give us that.

Fucking Cubs.

I had you in mind when I wrote the Lee Elia post today.

When my son was born over 14 years ago, in a hospital not too far from Wrigley Field, I had given a lot of thought to what my first words to him would be. The first time I laid eyes on him, I said the words that I'd given a lot of thought to: (I'm not making this up)

"Son-- don't ever forget... the Cubs are BUMS!"

He of course proceeded to become a huge fan of the Cubs. Damned kids never listen to their parents.

I say the same thing you do about the lame-ass Dodgers. Come out strong and then fade away in the middle of the season. Bastards.

what the hell is the grey thing? It looks like a monochrome interpretation of Wolverine from X-Men.
