7 Questions Separate A Real Wyoming Cub Fan From A Bandwagoneer
If it feels like everyone you know is now a Cubs fan, it may be because of the 8 of 10 Wyomingites who actually are. Seven questions can show who is for real or not.
The Cubs reached the World Series for the first time since 1945 and now have won their first title since 1908, prompting only more fans who love an underdog to come out of the woodwork (like the Indians who haven’t won a World Series since 1948, but they weren’t the underdogs in this series).
You’ve probably noticed people who’ve never discussed baseball openly cheering on the Cubbies on your social media accounts. Margie from accounts receivable is exhausted, because she was up all night watching the game. Your brother-in-law keeps posting pictures of that time he once stood outside Wrigley Field. Your neighbor inexplicably has a Cubs banner in his front yard, and there's that guy who won’t stop saying “fly the W.”
In short, for fair weather fans, just give him or her this basic test. Cubs fan - or just a bandwagoneer wanting in on the fun?
The questions are not hard at all. You don’t even have to be a Cubs fan in fact. They’re so easy, the answers don’t need to be given here (you can Google them) because a real Cubs fan should get all of them quicker than you can say “Harry Caray.”
