Cubs and Yankees in talks for Cubs to play opener of new Yankee stadium.

 It's probably been mentioned here but I haven't seen it. Just saw this on Yahoo that the games most futile franchise, the Chicago Cubs, are the Yankees first choice to open up the new Yankee stadium, in 1 or 2 unofficial games on the weekend before the April 6th opener.  The teams are still in negotiations and are close to a deal.

 I can just hear the comparison's between the 2 franchises now and all the "last things to happen before the Cubs have won a World Series" and yada yada, and the endless babble of Cub jokes and in contrast how great and mighty the  Yankees franchise has been. It's kind of sadistic for the Yankees to want to play the Cubs. Does Steinbrenner need his ego stroked that much these days? so in that regard, I really don't care if the Cubs open up new Yankee stadium, even in an unofficial game. Years from now, noone will remember. 75 words yet?

 Why start a new season with an instant kick in the stones? Eff that.
