What to Expect if (When?) the Cubs Win the Whole Enchilada?

Courtesy of Big League Stew’s ‘Duk, the agency advertising MLB12: The Show has an idea how North Siders will respond if the Cubs, who last captured a world championship during the (Teddy) Roosevelt administration, reach this year’s World Series and emerge victorious.

(Hint: There’s mayhem in front of the Wiener’s Circle!)

With Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer now at the helm, it is not outrageous to suggest that the franchise has a rosy future. Alas, the future is assuredly not now and Cubs fans may wish to keep the champagne chilled for another few years.

Meanwhile, let the battle for fourth place begin!
