I tell you, the Cubs are just hot right now. They've got the best record in the National League, and they've just added Rich Harden to what is already a pretty good starting rotation. Things are going so well this season that some folks have dared utter their thoughts that the team's 100-year championship drought just might come to an end this season.
This optimism isn't just relegated to us mortal folk, either, as even the Big Man Upstairs is apparently getting pretty psyched up for the Cubbies. Wouldn't it be awesome to watch a Cubs game with God and listen to him complain about Alfonso Soriano in the lead-off spot? Well, in order for you to do something like that, you would have to die first.
And boy do I have the place for you Cubs fans to be buried after you leave to go watch the game with the G-Man.
A Chicago man and Bohemian National Cemetery on the city's North Side are joining forces to build for Cubs fans a final resting place that looks a lot like the spot where they saw their dreams of a pennant die year after year.Is there a more perfect gift for that Cubs fan in your life whose entire lifetime of disappointment just isn't enough? Now they can spend eternity drowning their sorrows in Old Style while worms and maggots eat away at their flesh. What more could you wish for in death?
Called "Beyond the Vines," the 24-foot long ivy-covered wall is designed to look like the one in dead center at Wrigley Field.
It's all on the drawing board now, but the wall is expected to be up and ready to accept fans in October -- just about the time Cubs fans are starting their annual mantra of "Wait till next year."
Also, the White Sox plan on doing the same thing in a cemetery 8 miles south of the one at Bohemian National, except theirs is half empty and drunken fans keep attacking the bodies of the deceased.
