I would hate for them to actually win anything.

I don't want the charm of watching a baseball game at Wrigley to ever change.

Honestly Wrigley Field is one of the best places on Earth.

Irrelevant if they don't win the World Series for the first time in 101 years, and you know they won't, so what's your point?

The higher you reach, the longer you fall.

The Cubs suck. However, the Dodgers will do worse. Manny is already malingering.

The Mets also suck. Yet I continue to root for them. Plus this year, it will be at 'Citi Field', which is like going to a ballpark named 'Worst Bank Clusterfck in 100 Years Field'.

As a life long Red Sox fan, I wish you luck. The said the Sox would never Break the curse, and finally they did, so I'm sure the Cubs can win at all someday... Not this year though. SOX in 09!!!!!

But see, the Red Sox, curse and all, never really sucked that hard. The Cubs? The Cubs REALLY suck.

This matter of the Cubs taking the Pennant is a rather serious one to me. I have been rooting for the Cubbies since I am 7 year old. I have had my heart broken so many times I have lost count. I still send Steve Garvey hate mail full ofl epithets! I hate the Mets! Remember the quake in Frisco?

I really thought last year would be it but alas we went down faster than a one winged bird. I remember Leo Durocher was the manager. I LOVE Evers, Tinker, and Chance! I think the world of Billy Williams, Ernie Banks, and Ryner Sandberg. We have not been in the series since '45! SIGH!!!!!

I pray to God every night that the Cubs will win it all before I die. How many countless Cubs fans have lived an entire lifetime and never been graced with seeing the Cubs win the pennant. Maybe Sweet Lou is the one to bring it on home!

You folks don't know how much ridicule I have been subject to over the years. Just once before I die, just once before I die, for mercy's sake please God!

This matter is not a joke. Truly, it is not a joke at all!

Now I lay me down to sleep
Keep my bike safe from the bicycle thief
Keep my tootsies toasty warm
keep my carbon from any harm

Good Night Road Bike

Good night all you Foosters
And good night Moon

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

The Cubs will win the World Series, in 2012, fulfilling the prophecy of the Mayans of the end of a cycle.
