met a cub fan the other night and he said
“between you and me i hope they never win, i hate the yuppies who fill the bleachers,
“i hate that they have luxury seats across the street, i hate that they hollowed out space under the bleachers for private parties
“i hate that tickets cost so much, i hate that everyone is suddenly so obsessed with winning.
“and i hate that theyre not winning.
“when i was young i never cared if they won.”
i said yeah what was so fun was betting your buddy a quarter to see which infielder would scratch himself first
and bro reached into a fridge, opened a beer, handed it to me
and said to his wife, “honey that is a real chicagoian”
and we clinked bottles.
but between you and i, i guess ive lived in LA too long.
cuz i want them to win.
