The Chicago Cubs ending the franchise’s 108-year World Series drought would be a great story.But I can think of one story that would be even better: The Cubs’ drought reaching 109 years.Unless you’re a fan of the team, why would you pull for such a torturously wonderful and wonderfully torturous tale to suddenly vanish? What’s the point of pain if the rest of us can’t find delight in the suffering of others? Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Think about it. You never read heart-wrenching, collar-drenching essays about “short-suffering fans.”This is the reason I was pulling for Golden State in the most recent NBA Finals. I wasn’t against LeBron James winning. But I was for LeBron James not winning, thus extending for another season his delicious struggle to secure a championship for beleaguered Cleveland.Remember, this is sports, not love. Here, absence makes the heart grow harder, and Cleveland fans are famous for possessing tickers of Teflon. Historically, it wasn’t like they had any other choice.James and the Cavaliers won, of course, and now here we are, just four months later, and Cleveland is right back in the title hunt again. This time, it’s the Indians chasing ghosts that retain their invisibility, but, thanks to LeBron, have been stripped of their invincibility.Cleveland’s baseball team hasn’t won a World Series since 1948, the sort of futility trumpeted in “Major League,” a movie that itself is now so old that, at the time it was filmed, Charlie Sheen was still considered moderately normal.It was English writer Sir Arthur Helps who once observed, “Strength is born in the deep silence of long-suffering hearts; not amid joy.”In that case, fans of the Indians, Cubs, Dodgers and Blue Jays should have enough combined strength to bench press Burbank.Baseball’s current final four has gone a total of 227 years without winning a World Series. That’s two-plus joyless centuries, the kind of monotonous, unforgiving reality typically reserved for things like communist oppression.Placed in that context, it almost sounds like the only reliable source for those latest box scores would be the New Testament.Old Sir Arthur died in 1875, meaning he wasn’t alive for the Cubs’ most recent championship. Then again, who was around back in 1908?Emma Morano was, for one, the Italian woman considered to be the oldest living human being today at age 116. It’s pretty well known, however, that Emma is a hockey fan.As you are certainly aware, the Cubs haven’t won in a long time, a long time being the same year baseball adopted the sacrifice fly rule.When the Cubs last claimed a World Series, spitballs were still legal and major league teams nicknamed the Naps, Doves and Superbas were playing.They didn’t sing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” during the seventh-inning stretch of the 1908 World Series because the song hadn’t yet been released. It is quite possible, though, that Harry Caray was singing something somewhere.This is the mountain of soul-aching nostalgia against which the Dodgers will be leaning over the next several days. This, plus the fact they’re representing a franchise that hasn’t won since 1988.There’s a real sense that the Dodgers have something special happening. The “Win for Vin” movement remains alive, as does the notion that this bunch is operating with 25 hearts but only one heartbeat.Also undeniable is the way the Dodgers have persevered through a season that can rightly be described as “next man down,” an unending series of injuries depleting a roster of its depth but not its talent.As Dodgers fans know, the waiting is supposed to be the hardest part. But the losing isn’t exactly easy, either.So, a drought will end over the next couple weeks, while three droughts continue. I have my rooting interest, the story of the Cubs so much better if they pay proper homage to their depressing past.Everyone knows their history. Here’s hoping — 103 regular-season wins and all — they’re now groomed to repeat it. The Red Sox going 8 1/2 decades without a title was much more interesting than the Red Sox winning three titles in one decade.Likewise, I think most Dodgers fans would agree that watching the Giants fail year after year for more than 50 years was preferable to watching them win the World Series three times in five years.In fact, I think most Dodgers fans would agree that anything would have been preferable to that, including the application and subsequent removal of a misspelled tongue tattoo.In this business, we root for stories, not teams, and the better story always will be the continued push against agony and angst in the pursuit of a championship that simply won’t be caught.That’s how it is in our nightmares, right? Running, crawling, reaching and stretching toward something that somehow, someway remains just beyond our desperate grasp?
