I have just been watching the Chicago Cubs play a spring season game against the California Angels. As of the time I changed the channel, the Cubs were losing 13-1 after 5 innings.
It reminds of the time I started watching the Cubs on a semi-regular basis. I was in theological seminary in Chicago, and all the Cubs home games were televised on WGN-TV, so I had the games on while I was studying.
That was the worst year in the history of the Chicago Cubs. They won only 59 games and lost 103. Often there would be no more than a few thousand people at a game.
The only good thing that happened that year was that they traded to get Canadian Fergie Jenkins from the Phillies.... a steal.
