Cubs Curse Reports To Spring Training

Posted by Matt on March 2, 2008

The start of baseball this year brought with it the biggest buzz for Chicago’s loveable losers that I can recall in recent memory.  Cubs fans really think this year might be their year and Buster Olney even has them in his World Series.  That is all well and good, however, I am hear to remind everyone of the one key piece to the Chicago puzzle:  The Cubs are cursed.

It is nothing catostrophic this time as Alfonso Soriano will only miss five games due to a fractured middle finger but it is comforting to know that the Cubs Curse has reported to Spring Training, albeit late.  A fractured middle finger will likely have little impact on anything of value this season but the incident has a certain feel to it…as if the Curse just came in to say, “don’t even think about going too far without me!”

I am not trying to rain on anybody’s parade (Bob’s especially) as my Reds are always on the outside looking in, but when the Cubs are on the verge of winning Game 7 of the NLCS and Wrigley Field is completely engulfed by the fiery depths of Hell, remember we had this conversation.

One Response to “Cubs Curse Reports To Spring Training”

    As a Cardinal fan, I am happy to tell Chicago, the solution to the curse. Are you ready? Are you sitting down? Now take a deep breath and listen. The curse of the Cubs, is not a goat, it is not Bartman, it is none other than Wrigley Field. I am sorry to reveal these terrible things, but it is obvious. When the Cubs mmoved into the former home of the Federal League Whales, they from then on became minor league. Wrigley is charming but is not pitcher friendly. If the cubs played on the south side , they would have won in 2003. Cub fans can be consoled in knowing that their curse has been passed onto Baltimore, with the arrival of Oriole Park. You have a new owner, so look out Chicago, Wrigley might someday soon become a bygone memory.
