Goatriders of the Apocalypse

Definition of a Cubs fan

Political Commentator George Will once mused, "Cubs fans are 90% scar tissue."


The reason being that we are in fact the toughest among baseball fans. We are among the most loyal. We need to remember the mess that we call this season is considered a disappointment because our expectations have been raised over the past few years. Higher expectation are a very good thing. It means management can't put out a terrible team year in and year out. We will win a World Series. Maybe not next year or in five years, but we will eventually.
