As hope springs eternal, so does the belief that this year will be the year the Cubbies go all the way. Ah-yes, the Cubs 100 year loosing streak of not winning a World Series continues. It is also the 55 year since the Cubs were even in a World Series. This clip is from 1970. One year after the best Cubs team since the probably the 1930s lost the pennet to the 69 Mets. 70 was full of hope, but it was pretty obvious that age had caught up to the Cubs best player Ernie Banks. He was no longer playing short stop and was now on first base. However, Mr. Cub still had the spirit to play two and he sang the Cubs fight song in this video!
