For the Love of the Chicago Cubs

by Lew Freedman
 

Sure, Chicago Cubs history is filled with heartache — the team's nickname is, after all, the "Lovable Losers, " gained from a century-plus-long championship drought. But ask any Bleacher Bum or die-hard Cubs fan and you'll be told that despite all of the losing, the journey has been a lot of fun. For the Love of the Chicago Cubs is all about that ride.
