Honestly, I haven't cared about professional baseball in years. I used to be a big Cubs fan when I was a kid and into my teens, but I lost it later after a string of strikes exposed the vast underbelly of greed and money that floated to the upper management, owners, and some players, leaving the vast majority of those involved in the sport underpaid in contrast to the money intake. The same can be applied to other major sports too. Since then, the games have just seemed to become more obscene, money-wise. I guess I'm not a professional sports fan.
However, what lingered is the idea of the Lovable Losers. Up to now the Cubs were, well, the Cubs, regardless of how much money their star players made, I always assumed they would never "make it". They were the Cubs, man! I even bonded with Cleveland Indian fans over the years, as they too had a lackluster history of going to the Big Dance. I never, ever thought they'd be matched up. Secretly, I had hoped that if the Cubs ever made it to the Series, they'd be up against the Yankees or some such. Then I could really cheer them on. It's been my experience that not a lot of people outside of the Triborough Area of New York really cheer for the Yankees.
So I guess my point is, as much as I would love to see the Cubs take the series, which as of this writing is a kind of dim hope, I won't be ultra disappointed in their loss. I will also be happy for my Tribe friends. They'd deserve it, man.
