I was trying to explain to my co-worker – who moved here from Atlanta in the last year – why the Cubs don’t seem like underdogs when you live in Chicago (and especially if you’re a Sox fan). Unfortunately, he’s out of the country this week and isn’t seeing the many supporting arguments for my thesis.
Frankly, I can deal with the wall-to-wall Cubs playoff coverage on the news and the way it infects my daily life, but the one thing that chafes me is the way every asshole with a guitar seems to have come up with their own song about the Cubs. Ya’ll have Go Cubs Go. Isn’t that enough?
On the other hand, I quite enjoy this little ditty from the fine folks at the Beachwood Reporter.
