Now that the curse has been lifted and reality has set in, Chicago Cubs fans are trying to relive the captivating regular season and dramatic World Series championship in any way they can.
Books, for example, are a great way to commemorate the title and what it meant for the city. Especially with the holidays right around the corner, a "World Series Champions: Chicago Cubs" book sounds right up the alley of, say, millions of Cubs fans.
Now, the hardest part about publishing said book has to be picking a player or players that would best represent the Cubs' 108-years-in-waiting championship. Perhaps Anthony Rizzo or Kris Bryant would best fit the role; maybe a collage of sorts, with the classic "celebration" picture right after the final out is recorded. Hey, throw Harry Caray up in the clouds while you're at it. There's an endless combination of options.
Cubs fans might accidentally flock to this poorly-named book published in 2013, however, and that would be a mistake.
And the cover should give away the fact that something's wrong here.
Not the wisest Cubs World Champs book cover. Not the wisest. pic.twitter.com/K9SQDyEdFJ— 12up (@12upSport) December 13, 2016
If you guessed Starlin Castro, come on down!
That's correct: Starlin Castro, who has been with the New York Yankees since late 2015, certainly looks like the cover boy for the Cubs 2016 championship team.
Out of all the images that captured the incredible run of the 2016 Chicago Cubs, this one definitely does not. Time to pull this one from the shelves.
