Cub Field

I’m watching the Yankees and Cubs from Wrigley, henceforth known as Cub Field. I’m thinking Cub Field should be leveled and rebuilt into a real ballpark.

It’s no home field advantage.

Unless home field advantage is getting roasted on a 12-pack in the afternoon, sitting in the bleachers, throwing the extremely rare catch of a major league home run ball back onto the field for some odd tradition and booing like crazy when your team gets their @$$ kicked.

For 95 years in a row.

The Cubs are a sideshow. Their fans are a joke. When are they going to start demanding their management actually do something, like, um, build a farm system? Spend some money on real talent? Perhaps transform that ballpark into something that isn’t a total disadvantage to the home team? Perhaps winning wouldn’t be such a rarity.

A lot of people don’t like the Yankees. Including me. But you have to admire their “all-in” tenacity. The Cubs have no such mentality. They enjoy filling their ballpark, showing games on WGN, and appearing in a movie every now and then. To them, that’s winning. To BSP, that’s the desire to lose on an unprecedented scale.

Root, root root for the Cubbies. If they don’t win its the SAME. What’s it been now? 103 years? When are they going to do something? That throwing the ball back is a stupid tradition, and so is their losing.

I wanted to go back and think of teams that have won World Series since the Cubs last did:

– Washington Senators

– Milwaukee Braves

– Philadelphia A’s

– Brooklyn Dodgers

Heck, the Pirates have had 18 losing seasons in  row, and they’ve won a World Series in my lifetime. The Cubs haven’t even played in one during my lifetime.

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
