Cubs: year 1 not a big success

One measure of how dismal the Cubs season has been is that the marketing department hasn't bothered to update these signs, which have been up for months and now are only a dismal reminder of spring promise.
 
As Steve Goodman wrote:
"The Cubs made me a criminal
Sent me down a wayward path
They stole my youth from me
...what do you expect,
When you raise up a young boy's hopes
And then just crush 'em like so many paper beer cups.

Year after year after year
after year, after year, after year, after year, after year
'Til those hopes are just so much popcorn
for the pigeons beneath the 'L' tracks to eat."
