What it Means to be a Cub



WGN went to the well once too often with its "What it Means to be a Cub" program Sunday night.  According to it, Cubs history began in 1969 and ended in 2003.  The theme seemed to be that getting close and failing is better than going over the top and winning.  We got the same tired excuses about Leo not resting his regulars, about the collapse in 84.  At least we were spared Bartman, except for a couple of seconds of a still photograph.

Two recent Cubs headliners were conspicuous by their absence:  Number 17 and number 21.

Instead we had Doug Dascenzo with gray hair to remind us of our mortality.

Could have done without Pepitone, and the embarrassing attempts at singing by him, Ernie, and the 84 guys.

I won't be buying the book.
