Disrespect!

15

Cubs aren't getting much respect in the national media as can be evidenced by this roundtable hosted by Pulse Sports. The individuals quoted resort to the same old tired insults and epithets thrown our way. Interesting how everyone rags on "Chicago Fans" for being uncouth and in the same sentence, hypocritically insults us. Who can blame us for our warrior mentality? "Chih-Hsun: Anyone who goes to the cubs is on a downhill career path. Honestly, who goes to the cubs to win? (Ha-ha, sorry I had to throw that in there)" "Jeff: I see the Cubbies finishing 2nd in the division to St Louis, double digits back of wild-card contention — and remember kids, ‘CUBS’ stands for Completely Useless By September." I find that within our own circles, we have a lot more optimism for 2010 than these folks even though most of us are "cautiously optimistic". Personally, I think the future is bright, which seems to be the line of the day.
