An Incurable Disease: Memories, Observations and Ravings from a Baby Boomer Cub Fan
By Frank Mucci
There is no cure for what I have, but I’ve discovered ways to deal with it and first and foremost living as a Cub fan requires the ability to laugh it off—to look at the absurdity of it all and somehow enjoy it. Sure I get mad and frustrated and disgusted at how bad the Cubs (and our luck) have been through the half-century I have loved them, but I also cherish every bit of their history—as awful as much of it is. And you have to admit it Cub fans, once you accept the fact that you’ve spent your life rooting for a team that is synonymous with losing and you peel away all the layers of disappointment and frustration, there’s some pretty funny shit in there. Enjoy the shit!
