Either Way, Cubs Fans are Going to Die

A Chicago Cubs UrnCubs are down 6-2 in the top of the eighth. When we turned on the game and saw the score, I suddenly had a sick, sinking feeling that the Cubs are going to get swept in the first round. And with that feeling came another sudden realization.

I think I’ve mentioned before that I suspect there are Cubs fans at the end of their lives who–maybe they don’t even know this–are only hanging on right now by the strength of their desire to see the Cubs finally win the World Series. The sudden realization that I had at the end of the last paragraph was that some of these fans will die of disappointment if the Cubs don’t win.

Hopefully they can get Ryan Dempster to autograph the ball on top of the urn.
