Just how eager are Chicago Cubs fans to break the 108-year World Series drought? Eager enough that one fan has already etched “World Series Champions” and “Curse Broken” onto his body in tattoo form. The Cubs, of course, won’t play their first playoff game until next week.
That didn’t stop this dude Noel from Des Moines, who answered a call from radio station 1460 KXNO, which was looking for a Cubs fan brave enough to predict the World Series in a far more permanent way than us baseball pundits. The Cubs ARE the World Series favorites, but this is nonetheless a fate-tempting exercise.
Here’s how the tattoo looks, followed by a video from the radio station:
Now, the Cubs are playing for more than just 108 years of history and breaking the goat curse and every person on the North Side who has lived their entire life without seeing a World Series winner. Now, they’re planning for this dude Noel in Des Moines and his leg tattoo.
Better hope it works out better than that University of Kentucky fan from last year.
