Snow Storm St. Louis: Ready Your Cubs Suck Snow-Art

Reliable sources have informed me that St. Louis is in the process of dealing with a snow storm of biblical proportions—classes have been canceled at Mizzou, my alma mater; so too St. Louis University, Wash-U, et al. And while the piles of snow and ice are threatening today and tomorrow, pretty soon Missouri will get back to doing what it does best with large piles of wintry-mix: Erecting temporary monuments to how much the Chicago Cubs suck. The most recent example of this genre comes to us courtesy JoeSportsFan, from the top of the Arch:

The classic version comes to us from a far-off time when the giant pit outside Busch Stadium hadn't yet been turned into that thriving metropolis called Ballpark Village; when the Cubs hadn't won the World Series in more than 100 years; when there was a lot of snow on the ground, and people were bored.

The Cubs Suck phenomenon is a tribute to American ingenuity in its most unbridled form. When life gives us lemons, we try to find a way to make it look like the Cubs peed all over themselves. I can only hope that this week's snow storm, when it's over, has brought us together again as a fanbase, and not just because we've decided to pool our canned goods while the state works to rebuild Missouri's damaged infrastructure.
