Get over yourself, who is talking sh*t about the Cubs?????
Stop hating on our party and causing distraction. We have a right to feel good. Period.

Come on, Drover, you are more thick skinned than that.

Anyways socks are decent, but without bats to back up their bullpen they are still the underdog team by far. And lets face it the playoffs are still a long way off, choking is still a viable possibility... maybe the could get some tips from the Cubs.

What did I say? There was no slur about the Cubs there. I thought the Billy Goat curse and the pennant was something most Chicagoans know about and believe. Or the fact that some poor guy said some god must be angry with the Cubs wasn't anything to get bunched up about.

You again are just trying to flame the thread. Admit it.
