The Early Years
There was just one club on everybody’s mind during the formative years of the MLB – the Chicago Cubs! The dawn of the new century brought only luck to the boys in white as the team appeared atop the National League leader board regularly, going on to win back-to-back World Series rings in 1907 and 1908. The team would go continue to dominate the standings for a few more years until eventually falling of the leader board… seemingly never to return! The “Cubs Curse”, as it is often called, has plagued this Chicago squad for over 60 years, beginning its rein of terror after the Cub’s last recorded World Series appearance in 1945. No other team in the history of the four major U.S. sporting leagues (the MLB, the NFL, the NHL and the NBA) have posted such a long dry spell between championships as the Cubs, who are currently approaching nearly 100 years without a championship pennant! Will this year be the turning point? It could be, what with your support and encouragement, so don’t wait – reserve your Cubs game day tickets today!
