Over the last few months, I've noticed that there are a lot of people on BCB who, like me, have Wisconsin ties and are Cubs fans. I've exchanged posts with a few of you in the last couple of days.
As you can guess from my name and avatar, I'm a UW grad. I grew up in Kenosha, now live in Racine and work in Milwaukee (when I'm not in Shanghai). I have friends that are Brewers fans . . . we get along. (They talked smack through early July last year. I waited until the end of September to respond. What goes around comes around.)
I'm interested to hear others' stories . . . were you born here, lived here at one time, etc. If you're originally from WI, how did you become a Cubs fan? When my dad was a kid, there was no team in Milwaukee, so the Cubs were the closest and he followed them. When I was growing up, the Cubs were on the TV because my dad's a Cubs fan...I also had a teacher in grade school that is a huge Cubs fan, which is probably why it stuck for me more so than others in my family.
How about you?
