A better logo for those hapless Cubs?

Cubs
So, let’s face it. The Cubs suck. Again. But can we please get over the idea that they are somehow cursed? (I’m reminded of a Yankees T-shirt I saw recently: “Hey Boston, there was no curse. You just sucked for 86 years.”) Still, fans won’t let it go. Witness the latest exhibit: this revised Cubs logo, spotted on sports-spoof site Rivalfish.com. Funny? Yes (though I prefer the Cubs-dedicated satire of The Heckler). But inaccurate. Every time the Cubs get within 15 games of the playoffs, some fool brings a goat to Wrigley to lift the ages-old curse brought on when Vasili Sianis’ pet was refused entry. If there ever were a curse, Cub fans have long since made amends with all these goat parades. Instead, let’s call it like we see it: The Cubs have merely sucked for 98 years. Although they are currently riding a one-game winning streak.
