We have diagnosed a disorder for the Chicago Cubs

October 6, 2008

Victory Disease.

Ever since the Cubs won the series in 1908, they have gone on to do a lot of losing, especially in the postseason, even though they had 97 wins this year. We have diagnosed their losing with this disease, even though there are questions whether Ugueth Urbina is a licensed psychologist or not. And although not every patient always have all of the specific symptoms of the diseases, we sure know the Cubs have the problem of overconfidence. They just might need to take a chill pill.

Because they are out of the playoffs, all of the fine contributors of UUIB are listening to “A Dying Cubs Fan’s Last Request” by Steve Goodman once again.

Do they still play the blues in Chicago
When baseball season rolls around
When the snow melts away,
Do the Cubbies still play
In their ivy covered burial ground
When I was a boy they were my pride and joy
But now they only bring fatigue
To the home of the brave
The land of the free
And the doormat of the National League

Sorry North Side, maybe next year guys (Apparently, we post more about the Cubs than any other team in the Majors, weird).
