Forgive us the doubling-up on Cubs stuff today, but we just can't help ourselves: A new story in — of course — AARP Magazine chronicles the plight of old people just trying to stay alive long enough to see a Cubs World Series win. (Via wrigleyville23.) Our suggestion is to look into cryogenics.
That said, it's hard not to have a little sympathy for these folks. Three Cubs fans aged 100 years or older met at the Chicago ESPN Zone over the weekend, and commiserated on their pain.
Richard Savage of Chicago has been a Cubs fan for all his 100 years, and he still hasn't lived long enough to see his team win the World Series. "Expectations are still dim," Savage says. "But I still have hope." After all, hope dies last.
Old people are cute ... well, at least when they're that old. We tried to reach a Cardinals fan born the year they last won the World Series, but they're too young to be able to talk yet.
