Dear Cubs Fans,

Congratulations on winning the 2016 World Series.  Although we Clevelanders were disappointed by the outcome, we still respected the tenacity of your team as they rallied from a 3-1 deficit to take the crown.  Many of us felt a tinge of sadness because your eventual championship, one we had hoped you would get because we understood, came at the expense of our team - therefore taking away our opportunity to celebrate the end of 108 years of no championships with you.  It's still fun to visit Wrigley Field and many other great sites in your wonderful city.

With that being said, can someone please advise David Ross to STFU?  We get it, your team won.  But do we have do be reminded about David Ross' f*(king home run on a daily basis?  My God, we couldn't even watch the Indians on Sunday Night Baseball last week without him blathering on yet again about it.  OK, Dave, you're a likable guy and your baseball career had a perfect ending.  But for you to win, somebody else had to lose.  Have some respect, because right now you're shoving it down our collective throats.  We already had to suffer through our home stadium filled with Cubs fans and Eddie Vedder (whom I like) parading around town as Chicago's lovable mascot.

I know that this is largely an ESPN created phenomena; Ol' Dave is constantly having a microphone shoved in his face, what's he to do?  I'm just stating the view from here.

Sincerely,

Cleveland

Was this whole thing awkwardly slow to anyone else who actually watched the ESPYs? It would have been funnier if the ESPYs were in Chicago, perhaps, but a room full of celebrities and NBA/NFL players didn't seem to care much about David Ross or Bill Murray. Nick Offerman was the only guy that got noticeable laughs.

Does the stupid tag have the weekend off? Look. I'm a fan of SNL. I say this so you know that I have a high HIGH tolerance for contrived skits that go on way too farking long. It also means that I know it when I see it. And unless you're a Cubs fan, this skit was a huge waste of time. It was an elaborate exposition so they could give out an award (without showing any of the other nominees, btw) & then..... I'm pretty sure they didn't even bring the Cubs up to accept it? So I didn't even get to look at Kris Bryant at the end? What kind of horseshiat was that?


That being said:

Earl Green: We get it, your team won.

Sincerely,

Cleveland

dukeblue219: Was this whole thing awkwardly slow to anyone else who actually watched the ESPYs?


I didn't watch the ESPYs, but watched the thing just now and found it beyond awkwardly slow. It was painfully slow, to the point where I started to get embarrassed for the participants. Fortunately, I was able to multitask.

Was it supposed to be some kind of surprise that the janitor lingering on stage for too long with his head totally covered would turn out to be a Cub guy?

As a cubs fan, even I'm getting sick of hearing about it.
I did watch the ESPYs, and that was the dumbest, most awkward thing I've seen on TV in a long time.

Jerry Jones laughs and laughs. And laughs. Haha.

You see Murray and Offerman in the same sentence, you probably green light without even watching. But this was cringe inducing. That couldn't have been rehearsed...it was just so awkwardly uncomfortable.

Wow don't break your arm reaching for that joke, bud.
