Here is the official Cubs thread of the season. I have not seen JDavis and JHAWX75 this season. One guy I know why - the other I am not sure about. ANYWAYS, Cubs are 8-1 in their last 9 games and are kicking ass! Outscored the opponents 80-21 in the last 9 games. There is a fever rising in this city and I am not sure it is going to pass in the near future. This team is flat out good. At least for now. I can see visions of the Cubs winning the World Series on my Birthday.

JDavis aka "Mr. Meltdown" will likely never be back. Not sure why 75 has not been around. I really miss having Jeter sucks arguments with him. Anyway Cubs look good but as one Cub fan to another you know they will melt in some horrific fashion. It's just what they do.

As a rabid Cub hater, I look forward to the usual and customary Cub June swoon.

06 was a swoon. Not to sure about any other year this millenium. I doubt the Cubs will continue at a .714 winning percentage pace but I like how they are playing right now. Sorry you are a Cubs hater. I admit I hate most Cubs fans but then again I hate most people.

I have to say it is hard to argue with you. BUT.... Right now the Cubs DON'T suck, Cubs fans DO suck, and Wrigley as far as stadiums go - sucks but is also a fantastic place to watch a Baseball game.

At first I wanted to get on here and say "hey, it's not all bad. Wrigley's a great stadium." Then I started thinking about the cramped seating, bad sight lines, obstructed views, troughs in the bathrooms, and I'm starting to agree.

I think this will be the Cubs' year for a number of reasons. They are playing terrific baseball - and isn't it just like Cubs fans to get cocky about their team three weeks into the season?

Plus the Division absolutely sucks. Milwaukee is not as good as last year and their bullpen is bad, St. Louis is a frawd, Cincinnatti is bad, Houston is down and the Pirates are the Pirates.

The Cubs have benefitted by scheduling - playing the Pirates six times in the first 21 games.

I heard a report today that the Cubs - at 15-6 - are off to the best start since "the historic 1969 season." Obviously the sports broadcaster was a Cubs fan because anyone with half a brain would realize that the 1969 team didn't win squat.

I'll still go to games - looking forward to it. And I'm more than willing to go down in flames as a White Sox fan.

But this will be the year for the Cubs. Well, at least until they run into the Diamonbacks again.

Dont forget bad concessions, cement falling on your head and a terrible location. You can pay to be under the overhang and miss the gameplay, or you can sit in the bleachers and miss the gameplay. As long as you can take home a pink Cubbies shirt and an orange skank its awesome! You'll just be out 300 bucks and have a scorching case of herpes.

Wrigley has all the things wrong with it that you mention and yet there is still something magical about watching a game there. Going to C-town is not complete without a Cubs game. I love it warts and all.

My favorite new trend at Wrigley are the vendors selling the Japanese headbands for Fukadome.

One of the renegade vendors has his own version with the words "Horry Kow" printed on the side. I'm totally serious.

So, anyone who wants to talk about how this world is too PC, see above.

I still like seeing games there. But when buying into a family package this year I had to take two less games. Getting very, very, very expensive.
