Wow, isn’t October fun? As the Cubs continue their quest to win their first World Series since 1908, it sure looks like their fans are having a blast! But we assure you, they are not.
“We’re number one!” you assume those two guys with their fingers raised are saying. But that’s not the case. They’re actually pointing towards the cloud of doom hovering about Wrigley Field. They know what’s coming.
As does everyone in this picture – other than the young fan on the left. He may not actually be melting down internally. After all, he’s likely too young to have even experienced the Bartman disaster in 2003. But he’ll know the feeling soon. Rest assured, he will.
“Hey, fun!” you say. “He’s like the Back To The Future guy! Marty McFly!”
Well, let me ask you this: is it fun to be dead inside? Because all the costumes and hover-boards in the world can’t fix what this team has done to its fans.
The smile says “happy.” The eyes say “oh dear God no, here it comes.”
The smiles say “happy.” The eyes say “this is the only thing we’ve truly loved. And it’s all a terrible, terrible mistake.”
This guy gets it. None of this is real, man. Be a superhero. It doesn’t matter. It’s all a dream. A never-ending dream.
