Chicago Cubs fans were hoping this year would finally be different.
They put on their costumes just like they have every season since 1908.
But they thought this year, they might actually come home with some candy.
Yet for some reason that is completely unknown, while other trick or treaters had their bags filled with all kinds of candy and treats, Cubs fans received nothing but rocks.
House after house, it was the same old thing that has been tormenting Cubbies fans for years.
“I got five pieces of candy! said Dodgers fans.
“I got a chocolate bar!” said Indians fans.
“I got a package of gum!” said Cardinals fans.
But just like clockwork, even in their most hopeful of Halloween nights, Cubs fans were left saying the same thing that they have said house after house and year after year.
“I got a rock.”
Their misery didn’t end there.
This morning, this reporter encountered a number of Cubs fans that had fallen asleep outside with their bag of rocks, while waiting once again for the Great Pumpkin.
“It’s okay.” I encouraged them. “I have done some stupid things in my life too.”
“STUPID?” they screamed. “What do you mean “stupid”? Just wait till next year! You’ll see! Next year at this same time, we’ll find a pumpkin patch that is *real* sincere and we’ll sit in that pumpkin patch until the Great Pumpkin appears. He’ll rise out of that pumpkin patch and he’ll fly through the air with his bag of toys. The Great Pumpkin will appear and We’ll be waiting for him! We’ll be there! We’ll be sitting there in that pumpkin patch… and we’ll see the Great Pumpkin. Just wait and see!. We’ll see that Great Pumpkin. We’ll SEE the Great Pumpkin! Just you wait! The Great Pumpkin will appear, and we’ll be waiting for him!”
