The cursed Chicago Cubs have been disappointing fans since 1908, the last time the franchise won the World Series. This year's version of the Cubbies can clinch the 101st consecutive disappointing season by losing to the Giants, or with a win by the St. Louis Cardinals over the Colorado Rockies.
"It's great that we can uphold the tradition of the Cubs franchise and disappoint Cubs fans everywhere," said manager Lou Pineilla. "Tradition is important in baseball, and we are just glad to be a part of the storied history of the Chicago Cubs. Or the unstoried history. However you look at it."
Cubs management is already working on disappointing fans next year, by determining which big name free agents they will pursue, giving fans hope, only to have that player underachieve or succumb to some type of injury.
