The Chicago Cubs may have just three World Series titles to the Cardinals’ eleven, but the Cubs have one huge advantage in the decades long rivalry: their’s happened most recently.

The proverbial ball is now in the Cardinals’ figurative court, so to speak (annoyingly).
The rivalry is still strong but for the first time in a long time, it’s the Cardinals chasing the Cubs for superiority. The fans are trying their best to resist.

You can buy the shirt here, and get this: it’s on sale for $19.08 – naturally.
Here’s the message, that accompanies/sells the shirt:
Welcome to the resistance. The Chicago Cubs are NOT my 2016 World Champions.
We are strong. We are united. We are clothed in a delicious blend of cotton and polyester sure to make friends jealous on Opening Day as the 11-time World Champion St. Louis Cardinals take the field against a team that hasn’t won one in over a century. Sad!
I have to say, despite my devotion to the Cubs and hatred of the Cardinals, that is one clever product. I’ll bet they sell quite a few of those bad boys.
