The Chicago Cubs
Story of A CurseBook - 2017
When Rich Cohen was eight years old, his father took him to see a Cubs game. On the way out of the park, his father asked him to make a promise. “Promise me you will never be a Cubs fan. The Cubs do not win,” he explained, “and because of that, a Cubs fan will have a diminished life determined by low expectations. That team will screw up your life.” As a result, Cohen became not just a Cubs fan but one of the biggest Cubs fans in the world. In this book, he captures the story of the team, its players and crazy days. A mix of memoir, reporting, history and baseball theology, this book, forty years in the making, has never been written because it never could be―only with the 2016 World Series can the true arc of the story finally be understood.
