One letter, short and to the point, stood out. "Dear Cubs," it began. "Thanks for nothing." Among the torn-up Cubs posters and T-shirts, another note read: "Dear Cubs 2008, It really hurts knowing I'll never see you again. We had some great times." The shrine, at Waveland and Sheffield, was started by Murphy's Bleachers workers upset at the Cubs getting drummed out of the playoffs. It grew as passersby added messages and trinkets.
