SBM Exclusive Feature – Tales of Depression and Sorrow: The Chicago Cubs

tales of depression chicago cubs

Up until now, this series has been about certain instances, or specific seasons which would make sports fans cringe in horror and pain. This installment expands on that to take a hard look at the long-suffering fans of franchises who have tortured their supporters for decades.

In other words, today’s Tale of Depression and Sorrow is an interview given to us here at Sports Blog Movement by Andy, one of the founding members of the best Chicago Cubs fan site out there, Ivy Envy. Andy lives in Rock Island, Illinois, and just so happens to be the brother-in-law of SBM contributor Ryan Meehan, which is probably why he was willing to take time from creating a good blog to bother with this one.

J-Dub:  Andy, How long have you been a fan of the Cubs?

Andy: Since the mid-1980s.

    Thanks again to Andy for doing this.

    I do think that there is sort of a weird “glutton for punishment” thing that goes on with the Cubs as far as their fans. It’s like the celebrity trainwreck with the dope problem – it’s horrid but you can’t take your eyes off of it.
