As has been mentioned several times this year, this is quite possibly the best Cubs overall team that anyone alive has witnessed. I'm old enough to remember the early 1980's, and it's certainly been the best team that I've seen them have so far.
There have been plenty of ups and downs and the team is far from perfect. But, they have a legitimate shot (curses be damned, I'm saying it) win the World Series this year. Anything can happen in a short series, and the competition will be tough, but I like their chances if they are healthy.
In response to some of the posts/comments this morning taunting the Brewers -- can we knock it off? As some others have said, root for your team to win, not someone else's team to lose. For all the mocking that goes on at BCB about, say, White Sox fans, claiming that's what they do, how is it any better if a Cubs fan does it?
Yes, fans of other teams rip on Cubs fans. So what? Rise above it. Some of it probably is because there are times when the Cubs fans act like they're the center of the universe -- we aren't.
When you win a game, be gracious. I can't imagine Maddux, Sandberg, Dawson, Banks, Williams, etc. mocking the opposition -- why do the fans need to?
I'm not saying that we shouldn't celebrate if the season ends the way we all hope it does -- but shouldn't the focus be on the Cubs winning, and not someone else losing?
