The only people more obsessed with the Cubs than their incredibly loyal fans are the "fans" of the Chicago White Sox.
The Chicago Cubs are the baseball club from the North side of Chicago, the polar opposites of the hated White Sox. Though usually not the best team in terms of record, the Cubs have great fans, and almost every game at Wrigley Field is a sellout. The Cubs also have a strong fan base nationwide. In Denver, where I live, there were more Cubs fans at Coors Field than there were Rockies fans.
They currently have a very strong lineup including first baseman Derrek Lee and third baseman Aramis Ramirez, as well as former Red Sock Nomar Garciaparra playing shortstop. And their pitching is good as well with Mark Prior, Grag Maddux and Carlos Zambrano as starters and former All-Star Kerry wood recently nade releiver.
1) LF Alfonso Soriano
2) SS Ryan Theriot
3) 1B Derrek Lee
4) 3B Aramis Ramirez
5) RF Kosuke Fukudome
6) 2B Mark DeRosa
7) C Geovany Soto
8) CF Felix Pie/Reed Johnson
9) P Carlos Zambrano (2nd best hitting pitcher, #1 is Micah Owings of Diamondbacks)
They are much better than their crosstown rivals the White Sox.
Also, they will be the 2008 World Series Champions!!!!!!!!!!

I got cubbed when she told me she'd never go out on a date with me.
Today I walked all over school with toilet paper stuck to my shoe. I was a cub.
