Embrace the Curse - An Opposing View

This post is an opposing viewpoint to Al's post concerning the AC sign on the rooftop club.  I thought about this idea before reading Al's post but it seems even more appropriate now. 

We need to Embrace the Curse! 

We've tried taking it off.   We've tried blessing the dugout.    We've tried to ignore it.  We've even blown up the ball.    But still the Cubs have not won.

We need to Embrace the Curse! 

The Cubs need to do the opposite.  Instead of ignoring the curse and saying that it doen't matter the Cubs should use it.  I propose the following promotions:

Black Cat Day - 1st 10,000 receive a stuffed black cat named Ronnie.

Billy Goat Day - 1st 10,000 receive a stuffed goat and a coupon for a 'Cheeze Bogger'

Bartman Bobblehead Day - 1st 10,000

Leon Durham Glove Day - 1st 5000 kids (13 years and younger)

Scapegoat Night - Dress as your favorite Cubs Curse

Fan Appreciation - Everyone gets a Cubs Hat with a set of headphones

I'm sure you guys can add to the list.

The point is that what the Cubs and their fans have been doing is not working and perhaps increasing the preasure for everyone.

Seinfeld said it best:

Jerry : If every instinct you have is wrong, then the opposite would have to be right.

George : Yes, I will do the opposite. I used to sit here and do nothing, and regret it for the rest of the day, so now I will do the opposite, and I will do something!

Let's do something.  Embrace the Curse!

P.S. Profits from the Embrace the Curse t-shirt  (because you know there will be one) should go to Cubs Care.
