Cubs Trivia:

What newspaper became the first known entity to pen "Cubs" as the Chicago National League team nickname in 1902?

I know it was given as reference to the young team the Cubs had at the time.

It's a now-defunct paper with the word Daily in it iirc. Something like the Chicago Daily Times?

EDIT: I believe the writer was named Richard Tidrow.

And that's a bad miss...

Chicago Daily News is correct!

As tempting as it is to see Brett lose his shit, I will confess. We were yankin' your chain.
