I decided this past winter to go out of my way to not give money to the Cubs, to the best of my ability. I wish I could do something to actually negatively impact their bottom line. That's all they care about.

Were the Koch Brothers unavailable when they were looking for investors?

Those are the people that each bought 1% of the team at a premium price when they were raising capital a few years back. Doesn't change that it's an unfortunate alliance, or that it was a bad choice even at the time, but it's not as absurdly boneheaded as bringing her in at this point would come off as. I honestly feel bad even adding that context.

Not saying it will happen, but the Cubs coming back from a 3-1 deficit to win the World Series does seem like the appropriate way to cap off this season and make the 30-for-30 even better.

That's as a punch-able face as Ted Cruz.

Nah. It's no secret how much they horsefeathering suck at this point (except in the thread title, I guess).

At this point I'm surprised it isn't bumped a couple times each day.

Pete Ricketts has apparently tweeted his full support of the Alabama abortion law.

I wish there were a way to just boycott the Cubs without having to give up on the team I've loved my whole life but here we are. I've sent a message through the "Contact us" on the website and expressed my displeasure over the Ricketts and Russell. I don't know what else to do. These asshats have made it really hard to root for this team anymore.

I just read the article and it's just a bunch of campaign people going to a suite and a game this weekend. I was picturing a rally by the headline.

This was really a non-story that got a lot of play due to a misleading/clickbait headline
