Chicago Cubs: A motto that speaks to the fan
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always known a bunch of “other” Cubs fans. Each is as passionate as the next, and all where their fandom on their sleeves. Even when the team was painful to watch, we all grinned and dealt with the pain as we watched nonetheless. We were always “in”, every one of us.
While this sentiment may not seem too noteworthy on a Cubs blog, understand this: I’ve never lived anywhere close to Chicago. I grew up in Maine. I make my home in Houston, Texas. Yet I’ve always known more than a handful of loyal Cubs fans. It doesn’t stop there, though.
I was recently blessed with the opportunity to drive with my family from California to Texas on our annual family vacation (not dissimilar from the movie of the same title, I should add, but I digress). On this trip, I of course proudly donned my selection of Cubs hats and T-shirts, for all the world to see.
The response I got was surprising.
