Like Jeff Winger on “Community” famously said: “What’s your favorite color?

The Chicago Cubs are/were America’s Team of sorts. At least in the time before national sports networks proliferated and exploded. Older readers can recall a time when there were only two teams that you could see on television coast to coast- the Cubs and the Atlanta Braves.
