I've had several people ask why I would choose black & white for a Cubs blog. I get comments like this:
"Aren't those White Sox colors?"
"Are you secretly a White Sox fan?"
"Isn't that just lazy design?"
I guess, no, and so what?
The last time the Cubs won the World Series, black & white were their colors. I'm not proposing the team go back to break any mythical curses, but this blog is staying B/W as long as the Cubs stay championship-free. I'm also paying 2 cents for a loaf of bread and getting paid $750 a year in tribute to the early 20th century.
So there you have it. I bleed Cubbie blue, but I blog in monochromatic anticipation.
