And somehow it just gets worse for Cubs fans

The Cubs haven't been to the World Series since 1945.
They are now entering their second century without a World Series title.

Meanwhile 4 expansion teams have been created since the start of the 1993 season.
The Marlins have won two World Series.
The Diamondbacks won the 2001 World Series.
The Rockies won the 2007 pennant.
And now the Rays have won the 2008 pennant and are being picked to win the World Series... this World Series that was the Cubs to lose!

And this doesn't even include the pennant winning expansion teams of the 1960s and 1970s (Astros, Mets, Angels, Padres, Brewers, Blue Jays and Royals).

As I wrote for Dennis Miller... "At this point even Ike Turner would say to Cubs fans 'You've got to get out of this relationship... it's no good for you!'"
