A serious(-ish) question:

Why would you go to a Chicago Cubs fan site to bitch about the team? Repeatedly? Why wouldn't you call/write the team itself? Or if no one picks up the phone, why wouldn't you just walk away?

Perhaps you're looking for camaraderie, a sense that you're not alone in your feelings. I can accept that. But when it appears that you are indeed alone, or are in a small minority, why continue to agitate?

I mean, it's like in the second season of Lost, when the show started to suck, I just didn't watch it any more. I certainly didn't go to Lost fan sites and troll message boards to complain about the show. The thought never have crossed my mind. I just walked away.

Voicing displeasure? Great. Tell it to someone who (1) cares, or (2) is in a position to do something about it (and you should probably have a few thoughts of your own as to things you'd change, otherwise you're gonna sound like a whiny d000000sh).

The online, open-letter-style whining... I dunno, it's just weird to me. I can't get a point of reference on it. It's a big world out there, kids. There are gonna be things you don't like. Try to find some things that you do like, and enjoy them. It's a lot more fun to be happy than a misanthropic, boorish ass.

It has been awhile since we have had a term mentioned worth submitting to the BN Lexicon. Well done. Oh, BTW you hit the nail on the head. Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, as long as it doesn't mess with my pursuit of happiness!

I love making up words. Apparently, tonight, I created the word "trough".

Ummm.... and then you came back and have since watched the rest of the show, lest you miss out on the greatest television show of this or any generation?

I quit reading after you said Lost sucks. Your point was well stated up to that point. I don't feel qualified to comment on the rest of the post, since I didn't read it.

Ha. I though that Lost comment might infuriate you two. You can pretend I said Happy Days instead, if you'd like.

Please, Lost was like a hot girl that you always wanted to bang.

Anticipation and what not.

Then you finally have sex and it sucked.

and she gave you the clap.

@TWC I agree with you. It just seems like some Cub fans really need to wake up and enjoy life besides the Cubs.

I have never seen an episode of Lost and I'm just fine with that.

I'm about sick to death with all the fuckwits on the main board. The trough thing was pure gold. Solid.

I'm a Lost sucked supporters but I'm aware that the supreme overlord Brett may banish me to an island to obsess about a series of numbers.

My anger limit is being tested in this thread.....

You can insult the Cubs, my job, my hair, even my family ... but saying a cross word about 'LOST' is a capital offense.

Well we could always go back in time and be chased by a smoke monsters but it wouldn't matter because we'd already be dead.
