Your Chicago bias is showing! I watch NL East teams lose so I can enjoy the Nats gaining ground. The Phillies, Mets, Marlins, and Braves are the real enemies, unless we are in a wild card race.
Well, of course my Chicago bias is showing, its all I have.
I know that tried and true Nats fans care little about the Cubs unless the Nats are playing them, or unless the Cubs can defeat a hated division rival, BUT, I would still argue that once you take an educated and objective look at the Cubs, they are the sorriest organization in baseball and have probably the most ignorant, self absorbed fans. And yes, my bias is colored by spending the last half century living in Chicago and putting up with it. Regardless, I am always actively recruiting members of the Chicago Underground Baseball Society Seeking Understanding (and) Coveting Knowledge, whose membership hates everything that is "Cubbish."
