That fan, that fan, that fa-a-a-an...

Oh, come on, obvious Lauren Hill reference.

Yeah yeah yeah, so everyone in Chicago was outraged. So the television and radio stations stalked the guy, and he couldn't go to work.

And the guy, who was a youth baseball coach and life-long Cubs fans, should have been paying attention, and should have known better. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

But come on. Do we really believe that he is single-handedly responsible for the Cubs not reaching the big dance?

Apparently, yes.

Because in Chicago, we still blame goats. And we still dream of hearing from beyond the grave, "Cubs win! Cubs win! Holy cow!"

Well, all we have left is the Cub fan's October mantra: "There's always next year."
