If you have HBO, check out "Wait 'til Next Year," the network's incredibly entertaining documentary about the Job-like existence of Cubs fans nationwide. With some great, I've-never-seen-before footage about their historic collapses and outright choke-jobs, it's a history lesson in the Nine that'll win the World Series next year. Or maybe the year after that.

But remember, we wouldn't even be having this conversation if that spawn-of-Satan, headphone-wearing dipshit Steve Bartman would've kept his friggin' hands to himself. Or, if a black cat didn't hop out on the field and circle Ron Santo at Shea in '69. Or, if the ticket takers would've just let William Sianis and his freakin' Billy Goat into Wrigley back in '45.
