Do Wyomingites No Longer Find The Chicago Cubs Loveable? [POLL]
The Chicago Cubs owner, 72-year-old Joe Ricketts, recently retired to Jackson Hole. Otherwise, the Chicago Cubs don’t have much to do with Wyoming.
But there was a decisive majority of the Cowboy State’s major league fans who cheered for the Cubs in the last world series. As so did many outside of Cleveland. Since the Cubs won, though, the question is about Cubs fans and their no longer ‘loveable’ losers.
2016 is gone. Opening the 2017 season, are the Chicago Cubs no longer loveable since they're definitely no longer losers? Maybe they’re even seen as bad guys now, since people don't want to see the same team always win? You know how that underdog thing works.
For many, the words “evil” and “New York Yankees” are often used in the same sentence. Actually that’s been true ever since the Red Sox acquired the Curse of the Bambino. Since the Cubs broke their Curse of the Billy Goat, have things changed for you?
Last November, Manager Joe Maddon told PBS Newshour:
"I love tradition. I think tradition is worth time mentally, and tradition is worth being upheld. But curses and superstitions are not. So it’s really great for entire Cubdom to get beyond that moment and continue to move forward, because now, based on the young players we have in this organization, we have an opportunity to be good for a long time.”
