Any Chicago Cubs fan who’s followed Theo Epstein’s grand North Side Plan has earnestly informed friends for the past few years, “Just wait – we’re going to be good.” Knowledgeable die-hard devotees soberly saw change on the horizon – this was not blind optimism touting the fantasy of “Next Year”, it was an objective realization that real reform was afoot.
And now the fruits of that patience are blooming.
It’s still early in the process but the Cubs are already playing winning ball, competing every night, and challenging for a playoff spot. Naysayers still joke about the loveable losers who’ve gone a century without a title, yet the obvious, encouraging truth-- as succinctly tweeted by catcher Miguel Montero – is: We Are Good.
It began as a flippant hashtag (#WeAreGood) and quickly became a mantra for a fan base that hungers for respect, meaningful games, and that ever-elusive championship. The phrase is basic, but perfect in its understatement: we’re not saying that we’re world-beaters, we’re not invoking miracles or vanquishing curses – we’re putting faith in our talent and humbly declaring We Are Good!
Show your belief in the Cubby resurrection with this fun graphic depiction of the phrase that invokes imagery and iconology from Wrigley Field’s Friendly Confines to tell the world that you’re a Cubs fan, you’re a realist, and we are coming!
