This is a great piece in Salon by Robert J. Elisberg. Thanks to "DE" for pointing it out to me. It's called "Okay, so it's been a bad century."
There are several great lines written by this fellow Cub fan in the piece, but here's my favorite: "People marvel that there are so many Cubs fans - but they miss the point. The amazing thing isn't that there are so many Cubs fans. It's that there are any."
There are a few more gems in the piece. Check it out, fellow Cub fans. It gave me a chuckle.
