You think Cubs fans are happy about sweeping the Red Sox at Fenway Park? In the wake of the Cubs’ sweep-completing 16-9 win over Boston Wednesday night, the above image began circulating around Cubs Twitter.
“Sweep Caroline” of course is a play on “Sweet Caroline,” the Neil Diamond song the Red Sox obnoxiously insist on playing during their home games.
Sweet sweet ownage.
Now before you go getting all bent out of shape Red Sox fans, let’s get some perspective up in here. Cubs fans as you well know don’t have very much to be happy about these days. They feel pretty much the same way you guys felt back before you won that first World Series.
Remember how it felt always being the butt of jokes? It wasn’t fun. So you had to take your little victories where you could. Try to keep that in mind before you get mad at Cubs fans for taunting you.
We know, it’s only a regular season series. We know, you’ve won the World Series three times in the last decade while the Cubs haven’t won it since 1908.
That’s why you can afford to swallow your anger this one time and let Cubs fans have their little triumph.
Just let it go Red Sox peeps. Let Cubs fans bask in the glow for a moment before the darkness sets in again.
