The Chicago Cubs haven't won a World Series since 1908, and they haven't been in a World Series since 1945, so the fact that they just clinched their spot in the Fall Classic is a big deal to the Northsiders. The Cubs will be taking on the Cleveland Indians for the Commissioner's Trophy and the right to claim the name, "The best team in baseball."
Obviously, fans are excited about that prospect. They could be seeing history in the making and a curse being broken. It's an exciting time to be a Cubs fan.
Plus, some tattoo parlors are offering deals to those wishing to get some Cubs ink!
Jade Dragon Tattoo has seen a ton more requests for Cubs tattoos, and in celebration of the team making the Series, the shop is offering a deal — $100 for any Cubs-related tattoo. Joe Scapini, the shop's owner, couldn't be more ecstatic. "I couldn’t be happier. I’m a life long fan. I enjoy doing Cubs tattoos. I enjoy people coming in showing their support," he told CBS 2 Chicago.
Scapini even widened his criteria for the $100 Cubs tattoos. "We’ll do any logo that you want [that] we can accommodate," Scapini said. "We do some cool custom things too with bricks and ivy and skylines."
Remember, it is our belief at Tattoodo that it is perfectly acceptable to get a tattoo showing your allegiance to a team. But if you go and get a tattoo predicting a World Series victory, like this Bozo did, you are a curse upon your team.
Let's hope the Cubs finally pull it off and take home the crown. Sorry Indians fans, but they've been waiting a long time. Plus, their team name and logo aren't racist and dated. Sooo... there's that.
