First, Laura Ricketts ( now part owner of the Cubs) is "technically" a lesbian.
I guess it is good that this came out now or she may never have known. How tragic would that have been? Well, since everyone already knows that Ozzie's hairdresser is gay the Cubs obviously needed to up the GLBT-ante or something. I also found out that the solution to all problems is to throw money at them ( he* claims to be a conservative?) and that the Cubs have not won a world series in almost 101 years. These shocking revelations will clearly put Cubdom into a death spiral of despair.
