The White Sox winning the World Series last year was the greatest thing to happen to Chicago, since the domination of Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls.
Chicago is one of very few cities that has 2 baseball teams. It is very hard at the moment to be a Cubs fan. When you listen to sports broadcasts, the Cubs are many times referred to as the team with the curse. The only team left that has not lifted their curse.
I don't know if I believe in this curse thing. I do know, that I have to admit that the year they almost made it to the World Series, I was watching the game, on pins and needles, and kept thinking. Don't blow it now. Don't let anything bad happen. Please. Well, I believe that some of us Cub fans have been disappointed so many times, that we just do not feel deep down inside, that it will ever happen.
I root for both teams. The Cubs are called lovable losers. The Sox have the bragging rights for the moment. Will that ever change? Can't answer that. That's why they play the game. Should be an interesting season on both sides of town.
