Lovable_losers_small After a full century of futility since their last World Series (in 1908), Chicago Cub fans keep coming back for more. More disappointment and tears, that is. So here's a salute to Chicago's Lovable Losers -- to the team that won't quit and the faithful who won't let them. Even after a loss -- when these comments were recorded -- they're a study in diehard loyalty.
