    How can any team named the Cubs expect to win championships? That's like naming your team the Puppies or Kittens. It just doesn't instill fear in opponents, like the Bears, Bulls, or Blackhawks.

    They should change their name to the Grizzlies.

    I agree...the 'cubs' are a bunch of sissies. As are all baseball clubs, See what George Carlin had to say about the game. http://tinyurl.com/qyuqfpr

    Feh... rounders versus airbag rugby, both are games for boys. Right now both the Cricket World Cup and the Six Nations are happening - those are men's sports. And played in more than one country, too.

    The ducks have a Stanley cup or two in their trophy case, the NY Met's have a few world series titles, and neither sounds too macho. What is a "Met" anyway??

    NBA team. It would be like naming an MLB team the Cowboys or the Patriots.
