aaaaaaaaaaargh!!

Stupid Cubs.  They folded like a cheap suit.  Fell like a house of cards.  They choked and no one was there to perform the Heimlich maneuver.  The team with the best record in baseball gets swept out of the playoffs.  AGAIN.

I could write them off and not root for them next year.  I can say that I won’t wear my Cubs stuff at all.  But I am a life-long Cubs fan.  I am not a fair weather fan, but a true Cubbie blue Cubs fan.

Don’t let anyone say that it’s just a game
For I’ve seen other teams and it’s never the same
When you’re born in Chicago you are blessed and you’re healed
The first time you walk into Wrigley Field

Our heros wear pinstripes and heros in blue
Give us the chance to feel like heros too
Whether we’ll win and if we should lose,
We know someday we’ll go all the way,
Yeah, someday we’ll go all the way!

We are one with the Cubs, with the Cubs we’re in love
Hold our head high as the the underdogs
We are not fairweather but foul weather fans
Like brothers in arms, in the streets and the stands

Theres magic in the ivy and the old score board
The same one I stared at as a kid keeping score
In a world full of greed I could never want more
Someday we’ll go all the way
Yeah, someday we’ll go all the way
Someday we’ll go all the way
Yeah, someday we’ll go all the
Someday we’ll go all the way

Heres to the men and the legends we’ve known
Teaching us faith and giving us hope
United we stand and united we’ll fall
Down to our knees the day we win it all

Yeah Ernie Banks said “Well lets play two”
Or did he mean two hundred years
In the same ball park, our dimond, our jewel
The home of our joy and our tears

Keeping traditions and wishes made new
The place where our Grandfathers’ fathers grew
The spiritual feeling if i ever knew
If you aint been, I am sorry for you

And when the day comes for that last winning run
And I’m crying covered in beer
I look to the sky and know I was right
To think someday we’ll go all the way
Yeah someday we’ll go all the way
Some day we’ll go all the way
Yeah, someday we’ll go all the way

  1. Yep they sucked……but look at the Angles the only 100 game winner about to fold to the red sox……its all about when you get hot…..but then again since i am a cardinal fan i have enjoyed the playoffs thus far

  2. “Yeah, someday we’ll go all the way” That’s why it feels so good to be a Cubs fan. Because it’s so familiar. That line has been said to me by almost every girl I’ve ever gone out with.
