As half of YCS opens fire

>> Wednesday

According to SI's tease, it reads "Find out why so many people hate the Cubs." Now, after growing up in a family of White Sox fans, going to college in Milwaukee and law school in St. Louis, I was expecting to see some pretty familiar arguments as to why others think the Cubs are the scum of the earth. The article was probably going to stretch on and on for pages and pages. This is the only part of the articlethat approaches criticism.


Seriously, how could you not love the Chicago Cubs?
Well, as it turns out, there are a lot of ways. You could grow up on the Southside of Chicago, where Cubs fans are viewed as a whole tribe of spoiled Ferris Buellers. You could be a St. Louis Cardinals fan raised to believe the Cubs are only cute and cuddly to the people who see them from afar. You could be from the greater Milwaukee area, only two hours north of Chicago, where maybe you have had the whole lovable Cubs thing rammed down your throat all your life to the point of bursting.

In other words, the Cubs are hated by fans of their rivals.
There's one other reference to a Cardinal fan who thought Ryne Sandberg was the Devil. The rest of the article is how the Yankees and Red Sox might not be in the playoffs this year and how it's hot in the Midwest (surprise) in the summertime. Hard-hitting journalism over there at SI.

I hate the Chicago Cubs because of "Go Cubs Go."

And everyone in Wrigleyville.

We could talk about how we hate the cubs all day long, I would say they're easily one of the three most hated teams in the midwest.

Wow, anonymous, what a bold statement. You could also say they are one of the three most loved teams in the midwest...kind of like the Red Sox on the East coast

The best part is that Derrek Lee basically agreed with Obama. When your own players are trashing you then you know your fanbase sucks.
