Cubs could win a couple more and those douchebag come lately fans will pretend they have suffered for decades, just like the many red sox fans that popped up around 2004. But then they will go back to the pack and those pieces of crap will disappear or gravitate to another team like phillie fans.

1. Kumbh Mela pilgrimage, India, 2013 - 30 million
2. Arbaeen festival, Iraq, 2014 - 17 million
3. Funeral of CN Annadurai, India, 1969 - 15 million
4. Funeral of Ayatollah Khomeini, Iran, 1989 - 10 million
5. Papal gathering in the Philippines, 2015 - 6 million
6. World Youth Day, 1995 - 5 million

7. Chicago Cubs World Series celebration - 5 million
8. Funeral of Gamal Abdel Nasser, 1970 - 5 million
9. Rod Stewart concert, Brazil, 1994 - 3.5 million

I figured China would be in there somewhere.    They can fart 5,000,000.

Or a University of Michigan game (at least according to the people at Ann Arbor).

Unless you like non competitive blowouts you might want to wait for the lacrosse or cross country matchups of those two schools?

You'll witness more of this in the DC area because so many people come from all over the country.  But I wouldn't compare Cub fans (temp or perm) to any type of Philly fan.

Cubs could win a couple more and those douchebag come lately fans will pretend they have suffered for decades, just like the many red sox fans that popped up around 2004. But then they will go back to the pack and those pieces of crap will disappear or gravitate to another team like phillie fans.

It was pretty funny.    They joked about all that.    Plus, one of the Ricketts sons is gonna be in the Trump administration and the daughter is a big Obama supporter.     Lots of good fun and laughs.    If ya get a chance to see it, you'll enjoy it as a fan.    Your boy Theo was even funny.

Haha Theo is a charming guy he really is. I'm sure they'll show it on our local news tonight since nothing Addison Russell has done this off season has gone undocumented by them :)

One of the other brothers is the governor of Nebraska and is a big Trump supporter. His wife...isn't...
