The Economist on the Cubs

| | Comments (2)

This season Chicagoans grew giddy as their “loveable losers” advanced to the playoffs. More than 42,000 fans came to the Cubs' game against the Arizona Diamondbacks on October 6th, many wearing T-shirts that read “Goat-busters” or “Just Believe!”. Less than four hours later, the Cubs had lost again. Some fans sighed; some cried. And the seasons, they go round and round.

There's a lot of pain in those five sentences.

P.S. The Economist seems to have added a Chicago correspondent, there have been several Windy City-related stories these past few weeks.

And the seasons, they go round and round.

And their Windy City correspondent seems to know Joni Mitchell lyrics.

This article spoke to me on many levels. :)
