I don’t know if “weird” is the right word here, but don’t you find it a little bit surprising that the Cubs are the biggest ass-kicking machine in Major League Baseball, yet you could make a case that they’re the most universally liked team in the majors, assuming you’re not a Cardinals fan? I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like it before. The 2004 Red Sox, maybe? But even then, I don’t think that 2004 team had as much out of market appeal as this 2016 Cubs team does. People hated Curt Schilling, David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez. Who is there to hate on this Cubs team? I can’t think of one guy.
Even during spring training, before they started to unleash the pain on the National League, they were incredibly likable. I think it goes without saying, but I don’t think there will be a single baseball fan alive who won’t be rooting for this team to win a World Series once their team is out of it.
Oh, and if that bar looks familiar, that’s because Big Cat made it famous with this rendition of You Shook Me All Night Long, featuring Anthony Rizzo and Theo Epstein.
See the Mets could be like this, but their biggest media magnet is a head case excuse machine that thinks the world revolves around him.
Bigcat is such a cleat chasing homo
Cubs are turning into JJ Watt fast.
The fact that BC is a well respected media member and has access to pretty much every Chicago sports team and everyone loves him has to eat pres alive
@crosbysbrain noooo, this is three dudes at a bar during the season. JJ would respond with a picture of him in the weight room and caption it “these are the only bars for me.”
