I’ve been reminded this week of just how hard it is to be a Cubs fan. I think that we can all admit that it’s much harder than being a Dodgers fan especially with the clobber the Dodgers gave the Cubs last night (thank you Russell Martin)
My great aunt, who grew up in Chicago, died this week. The Cubs never won a World Series in her lifetime. But wait, there’s more.
My grandmother, who also grew up in Chicago, turned 99-years-old in June. The Cubs haven’t even won a World Series in her life time.
In the meantime, the Dodgers have won six World Series titles (55, 59, 63, 65, 81 and 88). Of course the Blue Jays have won their only two titles since the last time the Dodgers were even in the Series (92 and 93).
