The El-level view Cubs fans hate most is the purple flag with the white L hanging over the center field scoreboard.
Especially this time of year, in the midst of a run for a wild-card playoff berth. Yesterday's late-inning loss after a ninth-inning blown save was particularly hurtful.
After a win, the Cubs faithful can breathe a sigh of relief when they spy the white flag with the purple W fluttering in the wind. Another notch in the win column.
Of course, the "In Dusty We Trusty" back-porch banner is a familiar El-level view for Red Line riders going north from Belmont. And when you look down on the crowds at Murphy's Bleachers after the game, don't you sometimes wish you were there?
But only if the W flag is flying, right?
