Forbidden Love: The Cubs City Connect Uniforms
Listen, I know I'm An Old. I made peace with that a few years ago when I turned 45 and my joints started barking at me every time I climbed a flight of stairs. It just happens, and one day it'll happen to you too. My face still looks like it's in its 30's. I'm good to go.
That said, I'm gonna go out on a limb right now and say that I don't get the beef the majority of Cubs fans have with the Cubs City Connect uniforms. First of all, they look clean and classic. There's nothing wrong with clean and classic, people!
It's time we come to grips with the fact that in terms of Chicago-area baseball teams, the Cubs are The Olds of the city. Oh sure, the Cubs' history really only goes back about a quarter century more than the White Sox, but in people-terms that makes them old enough to be the Sox's daddies! And if we're gonna be the Big Brother, we should dress like it. Besides, as much love as those White Sox City Connect uniforms got, I frankly thought they were kind of bad. Too busy, too much stuff, and they swallowed up the players.
Oh look, the White Sox City Connect uniforms! And there might be some players in there?
The only thing they were really good for was a laugh when Tony La Russa showed up on camera. And really, do we want a uniform that's main purpose is to embarrass our manager?
So. Many. Jokes.
In short, I'm saying I'll be the one to defend the Cubs City Connect uniforms. In fact, I think they're the best of the lot so far and I can't wait to watch the guys beat the snot out of the Cardinals while wearing them today.
