My former co-worker and all-around good guy Mike (a.k.a. “nut”), has a great rant/entry on his blog about what it’s been like to be a Cubs fan / Illinois sports fan lately. Good stuff. He makes some great observations as to what it was like as a Cubs fan watching the Red Sox win in ’04, the White Sox win in ’05, and the hated Cards win it all last year.
And here’s a gem from the comments:
“You know, allegiance to a sports team is actually stronger than faith in a religion. With religion, you can always convert. Just ain’t done with your team.
That said, I think being a Cubs fan is akin to being a nihilist.”
