Sports Fan Store: The Bad News Bears of Baseball
Everyone loves an Underdog, and the Chicago Cubs are the Bad News Bears of Baseball. For over a century, a World Series victory has eluded the ill-fated team. Superstitious types declare the Cubs cursed, and we previously discussed the Curse of the Billy Goat. In 1969, rumors of a curse intensified when a black cat sprinted in front of the Cubs dugout at the Shea Stadium in New York. Nobody's quite sure who was more freaked out that fateful day: the cat or Cubs fans. In fact, 2016 marks the first year the Cubs have won the National League Playoffs since 1945.
Last weekend, the Chicago Cubs beat rivals Los Angeles Dodgers and secured the National League Championship at Wrigley Field. Elated, generations of Chicago baseball fans took to the streets to celebrate their home win. Tonight marks the first night of the 2016 MLB World Series as the Cubs travel to Cleveland, Ohio, to battle the Indians. Do you have your Cubs sports team apparel? Here are a few of our favorites:
