Tom Morello is a long time Chicago Cubs fan. He even wrote an article for Rolling Stone in 2014 detailing what the Cubs needed to do to win a world series. Below is an excerpt:

he question we have to ask ourselves (ownership, fans, players) is this: does it MATTER if the Cubs win the World Series? Peace in the Middle East matters. Curing disease matters. Stopping global warming matters. But does it really MATTER whether or not or the little Midwestern team dressed in blue wins a World Series in our lifetime? I think it does. And not merely out of some tribal affiliation to the place I grew up. I truly believe that if this seemingly unredeemable team can make it to the Promised Land then, really, ANYTHING is possible.

“But how can I, how can WE, make it happen? The previous six points are a guide, but what if nothing changes? Are we looking at another 106 years of agony? What leverage do we as fans really have?

It’s the elephant in the room of all Cubs discussion, so let’s deal with it head on. Baseball is a business. Sure, we fans are wistful dreamers who fantasize about glory on the diamond, but to the people who hold the purse strings, the Cubs win the economic World Series every year. It’s a smashingly profitable franchise because of OUR continued support in the face of a century of sorrow. We fill the stands. We buy the merchandise. We drink the beer. Whether the team wins or loses, whether the fans boo or cheer, there’s only one sound that echoes at the end of the day: KA-CHING!

That is unless we boycott.

I propose that unless this plan is adopted by Cub’s ownership, we let our voices be heard and next year, we skip Opening Day. Imagine that. Opening Day at Wrigley Field and an empty stadium. Now you have their attention. Maybe we boycott the first home game of each month? Maybe “No Merch Monday’s?” I can see team accountants rushing to their calculators now! Scouts scanning the free-agent wires in earnest! Of course we should continue enjoying all Wrigley has to offer the rest of the time, but we will no longer be the passive partner in this abusive relationship. We have needs too, ya know? But we also have power and we won’t be silent anymore. Why? Because we love this team. Because we love Chicago. Because we deserve a World Series championship. Because it matters.”

Jack White, also a baseball enthusasist, attended a Cubs game with Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder last year. See photos below of the pair at the game with Cubs President Theo Epstein.

    Boom, Boom wife and drummer in Booms band attend strip Club at the Sunset Strip in the ’78.

    Boom and wife do the entering with drummer and do the sit down in front of boner alley. Boom drinks the 6 schooners of the lager and wife drinks the water. She no drink. Drummer in band does the budweiser and tequila shots like the Springsteen teach year ago. There be the punk rock bitches there and much of the groupies.

    Boom then order the hot wings for the eating. After the stripper come out Boom get out lighter for the childish prank job. The stripper lay down on back and spread legs so the pussy be the wide open, Boom put lighter on the quarter and then throw and hit in her snatch. She is the angry bit Boom do again anyway. That only money stripper get from Boom.
