Gonfalon Cubs: Screw the Closer
I’ve seen a couple of joking references to this on Twitter during various games, so I found it pretty amusing the Cubs actively talk about it:

Gonfalon Cubs: As I Was Saying…
Where were we…oh, that’s right. It’s good to be back. My goal is to have something up at least once a week, but I’m sure we’ll have plenty to talk about this year.
