If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

We don't really use BCB as a tool for criticism of anything other than the organization and internet trolls (warblogger-style meta-media critcism is so lame!), so I'll introduce the following article sans preamble and bereft any rhetoric about ideas such as "class" or "intelligence":

Historically speaking, only Constantinople has collapsed more than the Cubs. Everybody knows that, above all the Cubs. The pressure will be so immense that they will actually expect a tragic flaw - a Bartman, a Zambrano, a large chunk of concrete from the decaying pit in which they play, something - to befall them.

But if betting on a big-league team to choke down the stretch, doesn't it follow that it would be the one with the big "C" on their uniforms?

No comment.
