Thunder Matt's Saloon Pronounces 2007 Cubs 'Likable'

June 21, 2007 | Comments (0) | by Chaim Witz

After years of frustration, the Cubs have finally shaken the 'lovable losers' tag and have been upgraded by the bartenders here at TMS to simply 'likable'.

The same could not be said for teams of recent lore, of which one could argue, while certainly 'losers', were far from 'lovable'. The current squad, their fight scenes playing like outtakes from Walker Texas Ranger, has spunk, personality and a general likability not seen on the North Side since 1984, when Ryne Sandberg's bat did the talking and Leon Durham's nose did the snorting.

A hearty handshake and subtle head nod are in store for your 2007 Chicago Cubs. Likable in the same vein as butterfly kisses or ginger snap cookies baked fresh by your grandmother.
