The Chicago Cubs

In Back to the Future, Part 2, there's a joke about the Chicago Cubs winning the World Series in 2015. This is a humorous joke, because the Cubs are the worst sports team in the history of the world.

I am not exaggerating. Every year I've been alive, the Cubs have broken their world record for "most years without a championship". The last time they won the World Series was 1908. The last time they even made it to the finals was 1944.

Everyone was super-excited this year, because they made it to the playoffs. Will the Cubs break their 107-year losing streak?

Answer: Probably not.

They're currently playing the New York Mets, in a best of seven competition. The Cubs lost the first three games, and tonight is game four. If they lose again, they're out of the playoffs.

In other bad sports news, the Columbus Blue Jackets have fired their coach, after losing the first seven games in the season. Their eighth game is tomorrow. Hopefully the new coach can get a victory.
