I thought you'd be interested to read George Will's annual editorial on the Cubs. I won't bring up politics, so don't flame me about what you think about Will's other columns. Like us, he's been a Cubs fan for years, and that should be enough for us.
Here's the link to his editorial.
His article is actually a little too cerebral for me (I know it's tongue-in-cheek). He could have said it all in one sentence:
"Being a Cubs fan is a higher order of existence."
About sums it up, don't you think?
