Chicago Cubs fans have a reason to be pessimistic. Since, ya know, it's been 104 years since the team won the World Series. But their pessimism just reached a new level.
--On Thursday, the Cubs opened the season with a 2-to-1 loss to the Washington Nationals. So the Chicago TV station CLTV ran a poll asking fans if they thought the Cubs would make the playoffs this year . . . and 0% said yes.
--That's right. Just ONE DAY into the season, not a SINGLE Cubs fan polled believed the team has a shot at making the postseason.
--The Cubs lost again on Saturday, but won yesterday, so now they're 1-2. Only 90 or so more wins to prove all those fans wrong.
