This Season Once Again Has Cubs Fans Pulling Out their Hair


Witness the havoc wrought by deep dish pizza and Cubs baseball.
  • Witness the havoc wrought by deep dish pizza and Cubs baseball.
The Chicago Cubs are currently rocking a 47-76 record on their way to another losing season. And because schadenfreude is one of the most powerful forces in the universe, that's something that warms the heart-cockles of untold Cardinals fans. That's a scientific fact that is indisputable, at least here in St. Louis.

So please take a moment to enjoy -- while it remains viewable on Youtube -- this graphic video of a burly Cubs fan attempting to scoop up a soft roller, and failing in a most Cubsian fashion. This is what a century (and more) of futility does to a fanbase.
