I went to my first Cubs game on August 24, 1983 and hundreds since then. I’ve watched thousands on TV and – miraculously – even a few playoff series, but I can’t stand this Cubs team. Can’t stand its attitude and can’t stand another season of losing. I’m considering switching loyalties. I don’t know to whom I should switch (leave you thoughts in the comments below), as I first want to know how one officially ends their fan affiliation. Below are 10 solutions. If you have others, let ‘em be heard below.
It’s hard to speak poorly of the dead. If for no other reason than because it’s taboo to do so and most people kinda tune you out. You can’t speak poorly of most dead people. Can’t do it. Certainly can’t do it right after they died.
So I won’t speak poorly of former Yankees owner, George M. Steinbrenner III. I’ll speak poorly of his biggest competitors: the Boston Red Sox.

I’m from Chicago. A city where the echoes of Michael Jordan refuse to quiet even a decade after he swished his last United Center basket. Since M.J., Chicago has seen some bad Bulls teams. None of them, however, were so bad that a cup of java was equivalent to a seat in the 300 level.
Enter the D.C. Wizards.
When word came out a few months ago that EA Sports would be releasing a new version of NBA Jam, older video game players rejoiced. That joy was dampened a little when we learned it would only be released on the Nintendo Wii, but it was still pretty good news.
But after looking at an initial screenshot of the game, a new NBA Jam could face a lot of pitfalls. Because how do you duplicate or improve on a game that was great because of its imperfections?
