Congressman Quigley:   Time for Cubs to shed “lovable loser” label.

By John Dempsey, WLS-AM News

(CHICAGO) The Chicago Cubs are one game away from going to their first World Series in 71 years, after the beat the Los Angeles Dodgers Thursday night 8-4 at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.    The Cubs lead the series 3-2, which means they will win the National League pennant if they win game 6 Saturday at Wrigley Field.

Wrigleyville Democratic Congressman Mike Quigley told “The Big John and Ray Show” on WLS that he hopes fans descending on the neighborhood Saturday night don’t get out of control.

“It’s not just the 42-thousand people in the field”, Quigley said, “Most of those folks just want to see the Cubs win, have a good time, respect the neighborhood and go home.  You’ve got a few idiots that are destructive, but you’ve got thousands of people that just want to be in the neighborhood to be in the neighborhood.  And I suppose that’s fine and it helps business , but you know folks, you live someplace.  You wouldn’t want someone to go in your neighborhood and be destructive.”

Quigley, who estimates he has been to “thousands” of Cub games in his life, says he disagrees with the notion that the Cubs, who last won the World Series in 1908,  will lose their distinctiveness if they shed their label as baseball’s “lovable losers.”   “No. No. No” said Quigley, ” I’ve been through this since I was ten years old.   I never liked the expression ‘lovable loser’.  I’d like to be a hated, dominant winner.   Just for awhile.”

If the Cubs win the pennant they will open the World Series Tuesday night in Cleveland against the American League Champion Indians.
