    Actually, the present Mariners and the Cubs of the 1960's and early 1970's have many similarities. I had the misfortune of doing H.S. in a Chicago suburb (Addison, Illinois) during that era. One source of amusement was the Chicago Tribune sports section with a "Ex-Cub Of The Week". Be it Bill Madlock. Andre Thorton, Joe Carter, etc., the silliness of the Cub's mismanagement was very amusing. I think the larger WA newspapers should consider doing a like feature with the Mariners.

    Don't forget the Lou Brock trade.

    Nice thing about being a Cubs fan is I don't ever have to worry about having to choose between going hunting in the fall or staying home to watch a playoff game. :l:l

    Lived in Chicago suburbs from 1959 to 1968. Back then, you had to either choose to be a Cubs or Sox fan. It was extremely bad form to be both. My dad used to take my brother and I to Sox games. I actually saw the '61 Yanks play the Sox when I was 6 years old. I still remember that game. We used to also go to Cubby Bears games on school trips, Park and Rec summer trips, Cub / Boy Scout trips, etc. Wrigley was a great place to see a game but as far as I can remember my dad never crossed the threshold into that park. He was born and raised in St. Louis and was a Cards fan.
