Taxpayers, like the Cubs can't keep saying "wait till next year". And, speaking of the Cubs, die-hard fans might as well start saying to themselves, "wait till next year". I'm giving odds that their will be no World Series Champion in Chicago again this year. The facts are there if the die-hards care to see them.
