Baseball update

Although the Chicago Cubs haven't won the World Series for 102 years (longest drought of any U.S. professional sports team), Blackfive and innumerable other Cub fans have said "this is our year." Benjamin Franklin said that "The definition of insanity is doing something over and over and expecting different results."

Cubs is actually an acronym which stands for Completely Useless By September. It's true, they will choke.

Albert Pujols is the most awesome baseball player in recent history, and perhaps ever.

Mark McGwire was more awesome than Sammy Sosa - in fact although McGwire retired years ago, he still cranks out home runs during batting practice, making him the most awesome hitting coach ever. No one knows or cares who the Cubs' hitting coach this year is as their offense stinks. They only reason they finished 7 and a half games behind the Cardinals last year was because their hitting coach used to play for the Cardinals.

Cardinal fans do consume alcohol during games at Busch Stadium, but alcohol only adds to an already pleasurable experience. Whereas at Wrigley Field, alcohol is sold so fans don't notice how bad their team actually stinks - making the "friendly confines" more of a massive bar with live entertainment, not unlike Medieval Times.

"America loves a winner, and will not tolerate a loser"

- General George S. Patton, Jr.
